Mediocre performance when it is cold outside in Tasmania

published

I’ve had this now about a month in the middle of winter
My observations are that this seems to be weak during the day or when the ambient temperature outside is low. I’m not sure if it has some inbuilt circuit that cuts down heating during on peak periods (I have off peak currently set up). Another possibility is it simply takes many hours to become effective, One thing is for sure - a 3 bar radiator from Bunnings for 30 dollars works more consistently and quickly.
I am grateful the noirot took the edge off the chill but still found I could feel the cold in my shoes and under my trousers.

Purchased in for $479.

Don't trust "Lifetime warranty"

published

Most of the consumers chose this brand because of "lifetime warranty", as we did. After only 7 years, it stopped working. We contacted manufacturer and "the goodguys" where we purchased. No one actually wanted to help out that 'lifetime warranty', they kept asking us if we have physical paperwork-receipt available and wouldn't honour the warranty despite having it in their system. After coordinating a conversation with the manufacturer and the store and numerous hours waiting in store for this to be resolved while constantly being told there was nothing anyone could do, we were finally offered to have a replacement but not of the original model.

Absolutely love it!

published

We have had our Noirot since about 2014. We found it a bit difficult to operate, to begin with, but now it's a cinch. Heats our large rooms beautifully. I set it to about 21.5* overnight which is perfect to sleep comfortably. It is close to my bed and I have only heard a noise coming out of it once. One of the legs comes off occasionally which is annoying but I still really recommend this heater to anyone.

Great heater that heats the room very quickly

published

Very happy with our Noirot panel heaters. We purchased two 1500W and 1 larger 2000W. We use the smaller ones in bedrooms 2 and 3 and the larger one in oversized master bedroom.
A friend has NOBO and she said it takes hours to heat her large bedroom.
The Noirot heaters work extremely well and take the chill off the room within minutes. We also like that you can acturally stand in front of it and feel warmth coming from the grills at front.
We haven't had them long enough to see how efficient they are but hopefully they will be as stated in product description.
Will be purchasing two more for 2 other rooms.

Expensive and ineffective

published

The heater never gets the room to the desired temperature. It’s more like an oil heater you need to stand net to it for warmth. Probably only good for a small bedroom if anything.

NOIROT never misses a beat. Bought in 2009

published

This heater is a gem. We bought three in 2009 and none of them have missed a beat since. We work from home and our house is a three bedroom open plan. These keep the temperature at our comfort of a constant 21 degrees Celsius all winter which we have found is efficient regarding electricity cost. You don't even know they are running until you go outside and realise how cold it is. The best thing is no drafts from heated air blowing around the room or concentrated warm spots, just a subtle overall warmth. Excellent value. Compact slim design. Lightweight and easy to clean.

Purchased in for $233.

Simply the BEST!

Received my Noirot Spot Plus 2400W yesterday and used it immediately. Light weight and easy to move from room to room. I am impressed!! Heats the room up nicely and it is a comfortable heat.
Better than my zoned Aircon!

Using this outside in a large greenhouse (8m x 4m) and it's been going for 9 years.

published

Using this outside in a large greenhouse (8m x 4m) and it's been going for 9 years. Very well built, no issues at all and it's consistent. I maintain the heat outside at 14C approx each night but this can vary if we get a frost which is rare. Keeps my tropical plants warm and never misses a beat. Not sure how anyone could go through 3 heaters with less than a month of life with each one. This is a high quality product that costs less to run than cheaper models. Maybe the cheapest heating available if you are on a budget (or need one for your tropical plants).

Great for our bigger master bedroom

published

We have three sizes of the Noirot. We use this 2400W for our master bedroom, which is considerably larger than our other rooms. So far it has been up to the job. I love how we just set the desired temperature on the LCD, and the heater adjusts its own heating to get what we want. I know for a fact it doesn't use 2400W all the time as I monitor our energy usage on our Solar energy consumption app. That is, sometimes it only uses 1000W, and only goes up to 2400W when the room is really cold and the heater is just starting up. I suppose this automatic variable heating is how Noirot can be economical. Love the lifetime warranty too.

Perfect for our kid's room

published

We have a few different sizes of the Noirot Spot Plus. This 1000W is for our kid's room. We decided to pay the extra $40 to get the one with timer, not so much for the timer itself, but for the LCD screen which allows us to set the exact temperature. This is simple to use. No need to worry about different heat settings. Just set the desired temperature, and the thing does its work.

Hi Noirot
Just wondering is it cheaper to hardwire the heat panel into Heating and Hot Water wiring rather using Residental Light and Power wiring in Tasmania. I believe the two have different prices. Also is there any benefit between plug in and hardwiring the unit. Thank you for your time

Noirot Spot Plus

Details · 

Features

  • This range of electric heaters from Noirot uses a patented heated element called Monobloc to promise a 100% silent operation.
  • Designed with a child lock incorporated into an electric thermostat, for added safety.
  • Awarded a Sensitive Choice butterfly, the Noirot Spot Plus range of heaters is approved by the National Asthma Council Australia as being safe to use for people with asthma.
  • Streamlined design and the ability to be wall-mounted makes the Noirot Spot Plus a space saver, as it can unobtrusively sit in a living room.
  • If you’d prefer not to have the heater wall-mounted, you can have it fitted with Easy Glide Castors on the bottom, which allow you to move your heater from room to room.
  • Selected models feature an integrated timer or integrated thermostat. Some models are equipped with both, for added convenience.

Points of Praise

  • This range of heaters by Noirot heats up a room effectively and quickly. It then maintains a comfortable heat, even on frosty nights and in awkwardly shaped rooms.
  • A number of happy reviewers owned a few differently sized models - for example a 1000W Noirot Spot Plus for their child’s bedroom, and the 2400W version for their master bedroom. They found that the heaters were consistent in their heating performance.
  • The brand was true to its claims about a silently operating heater, as many reviewers reported that their heaters produced zero noise while running.

Points to consider

  • A lack of energy efficiency posed a concern for a number of reviewers, who noticed that their energy bills increased drastically after using the Noirot Spot Plus.
  • Setting the temperature using the thermostat can be complicated, especially at first.
  • Some reviewers who gave less positive reviewers noticed that some components in the heater deteriorated quickly - including plastic parts melting.
  • There are gaps in the heater design large enough to poke little fingers or tails through and get burned.
  • The wheels can easily become detached from the appliance, and are difficult to put back on.
