Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Thomas Poor Quality, reasonable heat output
We purchased this heater about two months ago. It works(ed) reasonably well; it should though be rated for fewer square feet. Today, though, the fan turned on with significantly less power. After disassembling it and attempting to lube/realign the fan motor bearing, I was forced to purchase another fan for about $20. I don't recall how much the warranty was for this heater, so I can't say whether it would have been a reasonable purchase. If you aren't savvy at repairs than I would be sure to purchase the warranty along with the heater.

This is an attractive, compact infrared heater that does well in a good sized room. I live in a small, 1280 sq ft modular, 3 bedroom home. The home is a compact design, with virtually no hallways and an open living room/dining room/kitchen design, so by placing this heater in a central location in the main room, the heat emanates into the bedrooms on either side of the house. I leave it set for 69° as I like it cool, and the heater does very well.
It is simple to set and change the desired temp, and the heater thermostat is very accurate.
We'll see how it does when winter hits with 20° weather, but I'm looking forward to seeing the first power bill.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gentrywmd Stopped working
For the first few weeks the unit worked ok. Could heat up a single medium-sized room but not much more than that. Now the heating element will no longer function. The unit powers on and the thermostat and fan run- just no heat. I have tried unplugging and waiting 2 hours per the manual but still no go.
The product is manufactured by TwinStar and sold under the Duraflame moniker. Tough to get through to customer service. When I finally did at 888 776 2490 they just wanted to collect all my personal information but not provide any assistance at that time. Someone is supposed to call me back in 24 to 48 hours.
This is not worth the hassle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisH Great power and compact size!
I love this snowblower. It is small enough to store easily in my garage however with plenty of power and capacity to clear my driveway quickly.
This product is made by ariens, and it certainly is a reliable and easy to use machine.
