I bought one of these from Woot in November. It's been on in my bedroom/master bath (no heat ducts) pretty much every day for the last month. LOVE it! Definitely worth the $$.

How are these price wise compared to the old central heat, with like a bar along a wall?

Are these the ones built by Amish people? I want Amish-built electronics.

Does not compute.

It's comparable to baseboard heating for electric costs. For spot heating it's cheaper than whole home heating, it's not near as efficient as a newer home heater though.

This would best be used in a place you wanted a little extra heating or say a bedroom when you'd have the furnace turned down for the night.

Probably because it's Amish-made.

Does the unit get hot to the touch? I have little spawn-demons running around and I wouldn't want them to burn their little snowflake hands...

I am in no way related to TotalFark.Com

Parents have two of these and in my experience they aren't hot enough to burn you on the exterior. I don't have spawn demon hands though so perhaps they could reach father into the unit. :-)

Wrong one - thats the Renew (only has a few buttons on the front). the correct one on amazon is about $119, I think

When they tell you it will heat up to 1500 square feet what they meant to say was that it would heat up to 1500 CUBIC feet. The unit barely puts out any heat, what you do get appears to come from a couple of elements in the front which amount to little more than what you'd get from a 1970's space heater. Even the manual that came with it tells you blatantly that it's not designed to heat your room, it's designed to help MAINTAIN the temperature of an already warm room.

amazon has three 5 star ratings and five 1 star ratings. 5 star says it's energy efficient; 1 star says it uses a lot ("tripled my energy bill").

Bought one at last Woot off and it worked perfectly for exactly 1 time. Since then, it still puts out a little heat, but doesn't matter if it's eco/low or high... it all puts out the same amount of very little heat. Save your money!

I bought three last year. They are big but heat okay. They are quiet. I use them in combination with a woodburning stove. I use them in the three rooms farthest from our stove and I don't turn on my furnace the entire winter. They are great for that but will not heat a room on their own.

We also just bought a $23 Lasko space heater on Amazon. Also 1500w and I'd say it kicks out as much heat. If I had it to do over again, I probably would not have bought these giant pieces of furntiure and I would have gone with smaller units.
