Buyer Beware

,
January 2, 2014
By UpstateNY2014
from Albany, NY
"Ordered this heater for the nursery in our house and to supplement heat in areas aware from our wood stove. First unit worked about 6 weeks until one day when it wouldn't turn on at all. Spoke with customer service (I'd give them 5 stars, this product gets 1) and I decided to replace the unit vs. refund (it seemed to have potential and I wanted to give it another try). Second unit broke within 45 minutes of turning it on.
That's a pretty high failure rate. I doubt it's user error - the unit just fries out for no apparent reason. I would highly suggest buying something else and Northern Tool should consider pulling this product from sales."

Profusion heater

"This heater has served me well for a 2nd year now. It puts out reasonable heat for smaller areas under 200 - 300 square feet, less if in a really cold northern home. It has LOW, HIGH, FAN ONLY and Thermostat setting and an Oscillation option. Mine included a Remote control which controls all functions.
It can heat up a bathroom in minutes or a small bedroom or can keep a living room maintained during the not so cold months when you want to avoid heating the whole house. I will likely buy a 2nd one in spring when they pricing is less.

Heater quit working

,
October 26, 2013
By joesgarage
from Louisville, KY
"I bought 2 of these last January, one for myself to use in a bathroom, and another as a gift. By the end of winter it didn't seem that that the fan wasn't pushing any heat but figured I'd deal with it when I needed it again this winter. Of course, still no heat. There seems to be a fuse inside on the PCB but it's soldered in place. Checked my saved instructions to make a warranty claim (1 year) but the manufacturer cleverly left off their contact info. Maybe Northern Tool can suggest something?"

"We used this heater last winter to warm up our mudroom. We have used a couple nights this year to take the chill off in the bedroom instead of turning on the furnace."

"I bought one of these about a month ago and it has worked great. It worked so good that I bought another one today. I plugged it in and it started working right away. I came back an hour later and it had quit working . The digital display was totally blank and it would not produce one lick of heat. Taking it back tomorrow..........."

AWESOME Heater!!!

from Prairieville, La
"I have only had the heater for two weeks and so far it has exceeded my expectations. It covers a broad area and it is real quiet. I love the remote control. The only reason I didn't give it 4 Stars, is that I am waiting to see how long it last. If it last two winters then it will go up to a 5 star rating."
