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 3.9 out of 5 by 124.
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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Design flaws in remote control disappoint in an excellent room space heater The heater itself is well designed, constructed and effective at warming a room. Controlling the heater is more difficult than it should be diminishing the value of an excellent product. Problems; 1. The heater has three settings, "fan, low and high." When turned on by pressing a button on the unit or the remote control it defaults to the "fan" mode and generates no heat. Pushing the on button three times activates "high" heat. 2. The display monitor on the unit indicates one of these settings but is difficult to read. 3. The display monitor does not indicate operating time remaining if the timer is set to turn the unit off in 1-4 hours. 4. The remote control is relatively useless as the operator has no way to monitor heater settings unless close enough to the unit to see the display monitor, that is within arms length of the control buttons on the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent heater This heater does a great job of supplying the extra heat needed in my new den with all around windows on these frigid days. The remote is a great feature so I wonder why the other colors of the same model do not come with a remote. The heater is so quiet that I use it only with the timer function so that I don't forget about turning it off. I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heater! Extremely pleased with this purchase. It works well. We had purchased another one like this a few years ago based on research I did at the time, and that one worked fine. This one has, so far, been a champ as well. Quickly gets the room warmed to our temperature setting. Goes off automatically when set temp is reached so it doesn't run constantly.Highly recommend.

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.
