What is the unit made out of on the outside? Plastic? Metal? Ceramic?
Asked by: Kenny
To be honest, I think the outside of this heater is made of wood or a component with wood in it. I love this unit, it has helped with keeping my electric bill lower - we all know what it's like to have a home that is ran by electric only. Hope this helps.

I lost my remote control in the trash. I need to replace it.

Asked by: John
This has nothing to do with the quality of the heater. I have no idea what you do if you lose the remote other than get a hold of the company and try to get another. By the way, we love the heater.

Can this heater heat a unfinished basement at 1000 sq ft.

Asked by: Cb88
I honestly can’t say for sure but I am using mine to keep my dad pretty toasty b/c he is on blood thinners. I am in a 1300 sq ft condo and I have to open my window b/c I get too hot. The heater is always set on 73. I hope this helps.

Original 1500-Watt Infrared Portable Space Heater with Dual Heating System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 928.

I had him-hawed about spending the money to buy this unit, but after having a bad experience with another one from Walmart, I went all in. We bought this unit to help heat a 'family room' that used to be a garage and therefore is not insulated very well. It says it heats up to a 1,000 s.f. I know it works great for the average 'garage' sized room! It's also quiet which is nice. It cycles on and off to the programmed temperature that you set it too. It has multiple options to set the unit as well. The remote control is another great feature so you're not getting up and down if it gets too warm or too cool. This really saves us on our heating bill not having to turn the heat up just to warm this room! AND as an added bonus, it's finished like a piece of furniture and small enough to tuck away easily. It will easily fit under an end table when not in use. Having wheels is just another bonus feature too. I did buy the extended warranty for $12.00 just in case.

I researched alot of heaters Dr heater always came up as the best. When I received it it was cold 3° I was afraid it wouldn't keep us warm in a drafty RV. It looked small , and I didn't think it would heat the whole RV. When I turned it on the heat coming out was impressive. It took a little while to heat up our RV but it was getting it done. I was supprised My mom even complained her bed room got two warm and told me to turn it down. This is the best heater I've ever had. I really like the remote control. I also like the tempature setting from 50° to 85° so you can set it to what's comfortable . Even the electrical cord is high quality. I also like the filter, which I didn't think would work, but it's catching everything otherwise when you turn it off then turn it back on you would smell dust burning. I would highly recommend this heater and have to other RV owners in the park. If you need a heater this is the best heater...

I wanted to purchase a quality, yet inexpensive infrared portable space heater. When this heater went on sale, I compared it to the "famous" similar looking 1500-watt heater that is basically double the price. I am not disappointed, as I got what I paid for. The quality of the wood cabinet is good, but not as nice as my sisters expensive heater. And, I read many ratings from the expensive heaters, and they basically said the heat from any 1500-watt heater will use the same amount of electricity. However, the features such as fan speed, safety from overheating, and size of the cabinet will be different. These feature on this heater are all very good. Not all heaters have wheels, and the wheels on this heater work very well.

This 1500 watt infrared portable space heater does the job of heating my 900-1000sq.ft. basement(man cave) and it heats extremely well and not only that its very quiet. The feature I like the most is the thermostatically control temperature. There's not anything that I don't like about it and it's well worth the money. I've been enjoying it for about 6 weeks now and its everything as indicated according to the specifications.

We use it to heat our 2 bedroom apartment, and simply wheel it to the room that we are using so we don't have to heat the whole place. The fan is not too loud. I don't find it heavy or hard to move.

Using this in place of EXPENSIVE propane in my 545 sq.ft.rental to keep warm @ night. Rarely needed during the day as this home is passive solar and basks in the NM sunshine!
