Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kayak49 Blasts of cold air during power on cycle
Vornado heaters and fans have long been a favorite of mine. This model is near the low end of the price scale; and was a very good buy on a one-day sale.
When the fan powers on there is no pre-heat time allowance, so before any warm air is felt a blast of cool air fills the room. The strength of the blast is a testament to the great airflow from this brand, but it causes a chill when the cool (cold?) air hits. We finally positioned it facing away from out seating area, but we could still feel the cool air blast.
The unit stays cool to the touch and seems safe around our 5 year old nephew.
It will eventually do a nice job of warming a medium size room, but the annoying feature would cause me to withhold a "buy" recommendation,
I intended to exchange this for a more advanced model, but my local Home Depot had none in stock.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zrock8 vornado best heaters ever made
I USED IT LAST NIGHT WITH WIND CHILL AT 29 DEGREES. WITH HEATER PLACED IN MY LIVING ROOM OF MY 952 SQ FT APARTMENT AND USING IT AS MY ONLY HEAT SOURCE, WITH THE HEAT SET ON LOW 750 WATT AND I HAD IT SET AT NUMBER 2 AND IT KEPT THE FRONT HALF OF MY APARTMENT AT 70 DEGREES,AND THE BACK 2 BEDROOMS WERE AT 67. AGAIN THIS WAS WITH IT SET ON NUMBER 2 AND THE LOW 750 WATT HEAT SETTING. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED IN A VORNADO HEATER. A+++++++++++++++++++ ALL THE WAY WITH VORNADO

Whomever said this was a whole room heater needs a refresher course in public relations. After following the directions and setting it on high and glancing at my thermometer from time to time it only heated the room to 65 degrees. I live in a 40' 5th wheel and the living room where this god awful heater is being used to heat 100 square feet couldn't get past 65 degrees is a total disgrace. When I awoke this morning I was floored to see the thermometer registering only 56 degrees with outdoor temp of 41 degrees. I would return this unit in a heartbeat if I hadn't chucked the packaging based on the wonderful reviews of this unit and feeling the packaging wouldn't be needed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ronfromtn Nice, quiet heater that works very well
This heater is very quiet, even good for a TV/entertainment/reading room.
Some people don't seem to understand: Its not designed to blast hot air into a small space, but to circulate warm air throughout an entire room. This 'gentle heating' mode is a lot quieter and requires less power with fewer cold/hot spots seen with conventional space heaters. We always keep ours on the 'low' setting and it does a great job at keeping whole medium-sized basement rooms plenty warm enough for us.
Since we bought this one, we don't use any of our old-style space heaters any more...

This is not our first heater of this type and it won't be the last, of course the way they last it will be awhile before we will need the next one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by capt1957 I have bought 3
I bought the Varnado PVH whole room heater last year for my daughter and loved it so much I bought 1 for my elderly parents and 1 for my house. It works excellent if you understand the whole room concept. heats our 14x25 up from 65 to 70 degrees in about an hour but will hold it according to how i set the t-stat. FOR USE WITH OTHER HEATERS; you must have another heating source for this unit to work properly or give it enough time to heat the entire room not just put out heat you feel within 5 ft of it.
