Answer: 
As a safety precaution I would NEVER leave a space heater on when leaving the house. A better precaution is to unplug the unit if possible.

Answer: 
The directions say up to 1 hr. at a time for up to 12 hrs. I haven't had to use the timer. It never gets hot. I have run it all night and it may go off and on, as the room temp changes - again very quietly so.

Yes but use your common sense. No heavy electric item is really safe around children. Kids are kids at any age.

TVH500 1500-Watt Portable Whole Room Vortex Heater with Charcoal is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 128.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mother's bedroom felt cold and damp when I walked into it. I purchased the TVH500 by Vornado ... My mother's bedroom felt cold and damp when I walked into it. I purchased the TVH500 by Vornado and set it up in her room. My mother grumbled and made it clear she did not want it. I convinced her to try it for three days. The first morning she was all smiles. Not only was her entire room warm, but she never knew her bed was damp until the Vornado TVH500's circulating air removed the dampness. Also, one of her bedroom windows develops ice on the inside; this has not happened since she started using the TVH500. It is very quiet while running. When it turns off (using the timer) my mother says the click awakens her. She falls right back to sleep. Mom has been using it non-stop for three weeks. It stays cool to touch. So far it is everything it claims to be.. I hope we are all still thrilled with it this time next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I use this product to keep my feet warm on long winter nights on the low setting and sometimes to heat my bedroom up a little more than the rest of the house. The temperature sensor on the unit is not accurate after running for a long period of time, but it is expected. I ran this unit 24/7 to heat 1000 sq ft upstairs to test it's strength and put off an HVAC upgrade. It kept up through November in Kansas City in a raised ranch with newer windows and a poorly insulated attic and basement.

However, I liked that it was not a loud heater like most. Very low noise and it blew warm air but was not hot enough to heat a 12 x12 room. Highest temp is 85°. It will work if you have central heating and can use as a supplemental heating source for a room. Unlike my home, I have no central heating. It's a nice heater, but did not work for me. Best wishes.... :)

The heater is easy to use and control with the remote control. It heats well, but the fan should be more powerful to distribute the heat more rapidly. I would like it more if the fan did so, reducing the time to heat the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up for Vornado heater Best portable heater I've ever bought. Good quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Protable Heater I read reviews regarding the [lack of] "heat" output of this unit and almost decided against it. However, I went ahead and ordered it because it was the type I wanted; (fan forced air with remote control). It's perfect for our master ensuite. The heat output is not "hot"...it's more like the air that comes out of a central HVAC register/vent. We had a "ceramic" heater before this, and the heat from the unit was hot, but it came out of the front of the unit and went straight up to the ceiling. So, the ceiling-level was warm, but the floor-level was cold. I wanted a more "uniform/even" heating, and this unit does just that. The fan forced air circulates the air in the room (without a breeze) such that the room is evenly heated from top to bottom. It's not the "prettiest" unit, but it is sturdy, and performs exactly as described. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Buying another. TL; DR version: Exceptional quality. Super quiet operation. Does exactly what it says it does. Reliable. Features are convenient. Pricey but it's saved me hundreds of dollars in heating so it's more than paid for itself. ---- I've had my Vornado for a few years now (TVH 500) and am looking to buy another one just like it or upgrade to the TVH 600. I love this thing. I don't have to worry that I'll bump into it and get a burn. Or that it'll get knocked over (it's super stable and quite difficult to knock over). Where I live, the wall heaters are horrible and inefficient. This heater has saved me hundreds of dollars a month in heating bills during winter. I love the thermostat - I never have to get up to adjust it and because it's so efficient, I don't worry about a crazy electric bill if I forget to turn it off before going to work. It's super quiet and while it might not be the prettiest thing in the world, it isn't ugly. I'm writing this review because I really love this heater. And while it's cool that consumers get to read about complaints so they can make an educated purchase, I felt compelled to speak well on this heater's behalf so that they can get a more balanced view on the product. This is actually the first review I've ever written on a website. My only complaints are that it's a bit pricey and the beep sound when a button is pressed annoys me. But it's hard to complain too much because the quality and features are great - I feel so spoiled by this product that even though there are lower-priced Vornados, I don't want anything less than this particular model; I'm that attached to it. It's more than paid for itself many times over. I'm only buying a second one because I took the first one to work. Turns out, my new job has me working with a bunch of polar bears who love to crank up the ac - even in the winter.
