Does the cabinet (outside) of the heater get too hot to touch (i.e., will it burn you)?

Asked by: mieranjel
The handle is so convenient that I have no recollection of ever trying to move the heater by holding it by the cabinet. However, in two years of using two different heaters in my tiny, sometimes very crowded travel trailer, I have bumped into them many times and never remember being burned. When I lift them by the handle, I can say for sure that mine only leave a slightly warm spot on the vinyl or faux wood floor. I know because I always touch the floor when I move them...just to be sure the heater isn't overheating. You probably won't have any issues wit h burning yourself if you are careful, but please contact the company if you plan to use this in a child's room. Sorry I could not be more specific, but the HD site will not let me enter my other review comments without all the comments being filled out.

what is the upper limit setting on the thermostat?

Asked by: JoefromCinti
I do not know, but I can state that both heaters I own just keep going when on high. I manually turn them back a bit once I reach the desired temperature level. I have never had these heaters shut down before the room was toasty. That is one of the pluses of this heater.

I need a 'noise maker' to sleep - does this unit on fan mode provide "fan noise" or is it quiet?

Asked by: Lightsleeper
It definitely provides noise, whether you want it to or not. It will serve your needs without being too distracting.

Big Heat 1500-Watt Ceramic Electric Portable Heater with Built-In Thermostat is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.

This heater seems to have the potential to be a good product, but there are quality control issues, like almost all space heaters manufactured in China. It's a solid metal unit, with prolific heat output and a strong fan. But in my case, the fan was hitting something on the inside and producing a very loud noise. The heater was returned. Note that this heater has 1300 W and 1500 W settings, so there is really not a "low" setting (most space heaters have a low of 750 to 800 W). Because the heater blows really hot air a good distance, I think it is unsuitable for very small spaces with a lot of clutter. But, if you have reasonable space in a small or mid sized room, don't mind running on high heat with the higher energy costs, and don't get a lemon, this heater could be a good purchase. Thus the three stars.

My employer has restrictions on what kind of heater is allowed at workstations but this unit met all of the standards. I am delighted by the power and size of this heater. I will say that it is sort of loud. However, I am so happy to be warm that I don't mind the sound. I use it on low heat and at half the temperature. This is more than enough for my office.

I bought it to use in my tent camper in late April with nighttime temps down to 35 and it kept us comfortable. My son uses it in our basement to take the chill off. Surprisingly, the unit does not get that hot underneath or on the sides either. Love it.
