Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WOLFED PATIO SAVER - Great product
I purchased two of these heaters for my patio living area to fight off the cold this winter. So far so good!
As other reviews have stated, these units do put off a bright red glow and makes you wonder if you are sitting under a fry cooker at the local fast food joint. But the heat will make you forget about the brightness in no time.
The specifications on placement in the manual need to be followed as the placement of these units is impeccable to its heating ability. This is why i mounted mine directly above my outdoor sectional to completely cover a individual sitting on the couch. I could actually use another one or two to fill my entire area. I added a timer switch to my outline line to time control how long the heaters stay on. **NOTE: this product does not come with a on/off button or switch, it works by being plugged or unplugged from the outlet.
The cover of the unit does get pretty hot but the base that touches your mounting surface stays nice and cool.
Check your electrical load as these units do pull quite a bit of amps.
I highly recommend this product over any propane type heater as these units do not emit any type of odor and seem to be the safest way to heat an area effectively.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarolinaNoodles Good but not strong enough for me
Wish I had bought the 2.5kW version, the 1.5 is just alittle too weak for me. Much better than a gas patio heater though.
Quality and finish is very good

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlJr This wall mount heater is a good value.
This wall mount heater is a good value. It works well but it would have been better if it put out a little more heat. I needed to buy another one to get the temperature I wanted in my garage during the winter months.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jhatlanta Not bad, but not great...
OK, there are a few reviews out there but here is my experience in Altanta. If it's cool outside (40 to 60 degrees) you have to be right under the unit and standing for it to serve its purpose (1-2 people). But if the wind is blowing the feeling of heat is greatly diminished. But it serves my purpose and I spend less on propane now. It is very bright so I angle the light away from my outside TV. Good luck.

In New Jersey it's too cold to work in my detached garage in the winter so I bought the heater. It has worked out great and keeps my 20'x27' warm enough to work in without the fumes of kerosene or worry of propane. Whether I'm cutting and sanding wood or working on something on the work bench the heater keeps my working area warm to work in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lmurphy Poor heating quality.
We live in South FL. It does not get that cold. We bought the heater for our blue and gold macaw that lives on the pool deck. The heater did not put out enough heat to keep him warm. We had to put his cage right under the heater. After all that the heater quit working after 25 days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mkm36 This heater does exactly what it said it would do
We purchased 2 of these to heat our covered patio. We live up in the mountains of Colorado, so even the warmest summer days, still have chilly evenings. These heaters make sitting at our patio table more comfortable and have extended our use of the patio. I do understand the complaints about the orange glow, but it really is no different than the experience we have had dining outside at nice restaurants. I do love that they are quiet and hassle free. The mounting and hanging took less than 15 minutes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jopen Well made but did not heat area really well
The heaters are well made and look good. But it was December and about 45 outside and you could hardly feel the "heat blanket" that it advertised. These are best used in an enclosed area (partially) and not an open back porch.
