Generates praise for its attractive design that resembles a fireplace with fire glow that looks realistic. Heats areas up to 1000 square feet with efficient infrared heat. Remote control included. Has casters that make it easy to move.
Some faulty models have been reported. A few quality control issues noted, as some units have arrived damaged. Pricey.
Not only does this model look nice, but functions well in small to fairly spacious areas. Metal scroll base, oscillating heat, reasonably quiet operation, and affordable price is part of its feature set.
Owners gripe about an unpleasant plastic smell that takes a while to fade. May not provide sufficient heat for very large spaces but works for most. Cord gets hot when run for long periods of time.
Heats up rooms and moderate-sized living spaces fairly quickly and quietly with even warmth without exposed heating elements. Attractive; operates manually or with remote. Easy to slide from room to room without tipping.
A few faulty models/units that quit working after a few months have been reported, and customer service could be more attentive.
An inexpensive model that is surprisingly innovative for the price, thanks to the 360-degree forced air unit that emits heat from the entire circumference of the heater. Compact and easy to move.
On the noisy side, occasionally makes strange "clicking" sounds and won't heat up spacious rooms.
Provides efficient room heating with dual-fan technology that distributes warmth quietly. Lightweight, slim design saves space and can be mounted to a wall with the included hardware.
May not provide enough warmth to effectively heat large spaces. Has a strange odor at first that may dissipate with use.

Portable heaters provide a perfect solution for rooms in your home that always seem to be cold. You can select portable heaters with all kinds of different designs. Some heaters even look like a mini-fireplace with fake flames. Pay attention to the coverage area rating for the portable space heater. Pick one that will at least fully heat the area you have in mind. Safety features are important for portable heaters, reducing the possibility of a fire. Some space heaters will shut off automatically once they hit a certain temperature or if they tip. Pick a heater with a long electrical cord. This means you can place it well away from flammable objects, such as curtains, blankets, or furniture.
