Questions & Answers


Can I set the temperature to 71* F or 72*F instead of having to choose between 70*, 75* or 80*? A...

Asked by Heather April 1, 2018

Yes, we bought the heater a few months ago and can set at various temperatures, not just at 5 degree increments. Very quiet, with little noise when the thermostat turns on/off. Heats our tv room quite well which is around 600 sq ft.

What is the lowest possible temperature setting?

Asked by Iris November 22, 2016

50 degrees; good thermostatic settings w/max. Heats up room quickly

Defined "over heat" like system over heat or temp over heat.

Asked by Kidale November 3, 2016

Yes, it should be given time to cool back down. Continuous overheating can be a sign of a bad heating element but an occasional shut down doesn't necessarily mean anything.

I am also looking for a heater for my birdy room. Does this have a teflon coating or any other components that could be harmful to birds?

Asked by J24sailorgirl December 2, 2015

Hello, This unit does not have a teflon coating or components that should be harmful to birds.

Energy efficient?

Exactly what I wanted.
I had a previous mica heater and this one is better. The digital controls are easy, show the temp, can be changed with the remote control. On and off too. The heat in the room 8x8 is all around comfort and no fan so very quiet. I can turn it off and it will still be warm hours later. The company has a good reputation and has been around for a while. It has a reset button for the technically challenged. The cord exits from the front which is mildly inconvenient. All around good buy!

Loving this toasty warm heater
I absolutely love this little heater. It's kept not only myself and my husband warm and toasty, but our new baby as well. With the negative weather we had not long ago, this heater sitting in our bedroom helped keep us all toasty warm without running up our electric bill. I love how light it is though, and the LED screen and remote makes it convenient to sit down and turn up and down the heat without moving. We often times tote this heater from our bedroom to our office area so we can stay warm while working.

Pracrical and Affordable
We have had this for over a month now and I can't imagine why we didn't own it sooner. It is so lightweight and easy to move from room to room and heads up quickly with no noise at all. This is the perfect size for our Master Bedroom!

Couldn't be happier
I'm pleased with my heater. I can't stand to be cold and I needed a heater in my home office that would put out heat without being noisy. I get distracted by noises easily. I can now work in warmth without the noisy distraction other heaters are know to have. I use the heater in other areas of my home when I need warmth, such as when the kids are running in and out and leave the door open. It slides beside my desk when not in use and due to the slim design, it will be easy to store away during the summer months.

Silent, quick heat, remote, lightweight
Nice heater, perfect for the bedroom to sleep, completely silent. The thermostat seems to be off by a couple degrees but other than that, it works fantastic. The 1st unit I bought was DOA and the customer service of Newair was amazing, Ashley quickly resolved my issue quickly and nicely.

Love this Heater
I love this heater. It is hot to the touch which is why I think they give you a remote control to turn it on/off, set the temp and set a time which those things are why I love this heater.

Bought this to use in our RV trailer because it was nice and slim. Would have been perfect but was defective. For example, we would set the adjustable temperature at 70 degrees. It would heat the room up to that and shut off. However, when the temperature of the room would drop below, it would never come back on.
