Is this safe around children?

Are the fan blades guarded by anything to protect children's fingers? I can't tell from the product description.
Asked by: Shosh
I would say yes. The grill is far enough away from the blades, so I don't see a safety issue with that.

What is the difference between forced heat & convection

Asked by: Barbara
I think the answer to that is that forced heat means that there is a fan that send air through the heating element.

TVH500 1500-Watt Portable Whole Room Vortex Heater with Charcoal is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks better than it performs Purchased two. Lasted about a month. Exchanged for two more and they went about three months. Temp sensor is either poor quality or located in the wrong location. Reset doesn't work. Agree with another poster on here that you can run on low for slightly longer durations. Wish the quality Vornado put into appearance was instead spent on performance

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy metal with pleasing design I was surprised that this unit is sturdy, quality metal construction and attractive. Perfect for taking the chill off my 15 x 17 bedroom or 22 x 20 family room without having to engage the costly heat pump. The controls and indicators are especially satisfactory. The room temperature and mode of operation remain visible after the TVH is powered on. Compared to my Vornado iControl this TVH 500 is noticibly noisier. That said, I liked this model so much that I immediately ordered another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's so unobtrusive that I rarely notice it Got the Touchstone 500 three years ago for our entertainment room in the basement, which is not well ventilated for heat. It runs unnoticeably quiet with a small footprint that stays out of the way. In spite of the large room (~12x30 feet), the 500 manages to bump up the temperature at least five degrees. It is always cool to the touch when it's time to turn it off. Just now, its qualitative impression led me to purchase Vornado's evaporative humidifier and 660 circulator. The overriding attribute that has me coming back is the unobtrusive low-noise.
