Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DRGORT Nice and warm
This unit was easy enough to install. It required a drilled hole for the house wiring and a couple of screwdrivers. The remote unit is really handy; in fact, I use it more than the on-board touch controls. I will need to re-program it, which is somewhat tedious, as the weather changes. I override the program using the remote control unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by deff so far so good
This review is on the installation part so far as it is too warm to use it right now. It went in relatively easy, however I am experienced in home repair and electrical. the hardest part was fishing the 12-2 romex through the wall. When putting the finish grille on, the top part hooks over the lip on the back box and the bottom is held on by 2 screws that go under the black finish piece. this took me a bit to figure out as the bottom didn't seem to snap onto anything. I did power it up and it appears working. the touch controls all work and I was able to set the date and time without issue. Programming the heat cycles will take a bit of trial and error. not sure when and what temp I want the bathroom yet.
Will post again when I've actually had the chance to use it. Also for old construction - cut the hole so that one side of the heater is right against the stud. The directions state that it is ok to use a 4" wood screw into the other side to hit the other stud, just don't overtighten the screw or it will distort the back box.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Brenth Heats well but is annoying
The programmable thermostat is a nice feature and is the main reason for purchasing. It is also quiet and not hot to the touch (small kids). We use it in our master bath which is on the corner of a large ranch house and had issues staying warm with the rest of the house.
The only issue I have is that when it gets to the set temp, let's say 68 degrees. It constantly kicks on and off as the temp immediately goes to 67 when off since the heat comes out below the sensor. So it loudly keeps clicking on and off every 3-5 seconds which is super annoying. I'd exchange it or trade it for something different but what can you do when you have committed to the point of cutting a specific size hole in your wall?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LindainNY On our third one...
Redid a bathroom and wanted to put in extra heat. Loved the look of this wall heater. First one got installed and the fan didn't work. You could start it with a screwdriver, but the fan was very noisy. Returned it and got an exchange. This one, the fan worked but the touch panel did not work. You could turn it on and off with the remote but could not get to any of the programmable features, so back it went. Have my fingers crossed on this one, which is working, so far. But I am really annoyed to have to go thorough the time and gas for the extra trips to Home Depot. One thing I have to say is that customer service at Home Depot is great and we had no hassle from them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ivan1236 Works great
I use it to heat a small bathroom in the mornings. Does not have the same effect as the old 1950s coil type heater that used to be there, but warms up the area good and not much noise.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by homedeluxe So noisy!
I bought two of these for my bedroom. For a few months all was fine, and then over the last few weeks both units have started loudly clicking and then for random amounts of time (2 seconds, 20 seconds, 5 minutes) they whirr loudly and then more clicking before going back to quiet operation. They cycle like this for some amount of time (a minute, 10 minutes), and then go back to normal operation. The manual is useless, and I'm trying to get help from the manufacturer, but I think I'm going to end up ripping them out. They wake everyone up (even the dogs) when they do this and nobody can sleep through the night. We now turn them off (!) when we go to bed, which is really the only time we need them. Very disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllAroundHandyman Excellent Small Room Wall Heater
I purchased this product about a month ago and installed it to replace an old bathroom wall heater that wouldn't shut off. The product was easy to install and has worked without any problems. I'm glad I didn't pay much attention to the other reviews that were so negative. It is a good heater and the instructions on how to operate it are easy to follow. It really heats up the small bathroom and the night light feature makes it easy to see what the temperature is in the room. The only negative is the gray color (I would have preferred white - found white on the internet but it was $70 more so I stayed with gray). The product is well built and sturdy. I'm very pleased with the purchase and recommend it to anyone looking to have a temperature controlled wall heater in a small room like a bathroom.
