These heaters work best in smallish rooms with standard height ceiling. The heater will need some time to heat up before you begin to feel the difference. Once at the selected temperature, it will only turn on to keep at that temperature, and I have found them to be quiet. To operate: 1. Plug the heater into the electrical socket. 2. Turn on the Power Button. 3. Select a Mode (Hi, Lo, Eco) 4. Select a temperature with the up or down buttons.
I live in my car and use it all winter even at at well below zero temperatures. I've had it a number of years and it still works great, if I can find a place to plug in my extension cord. It easy to find free camping in the summer as many small towns have free or very reasonable rates with coin showers. Not so much in the winter but the places are there if you look. Try highway rest stops or truck stops. Go to a church on Sunday. People will ask about you as you are new and usually find you a place to stay or park your car where there is a bathroom and a an outlet to plug in your extension cord. Good luck. And hang in there.
I would think so. It works similar to the cast iron water filled radiators you have in your home. I live in my car and sleep right next to the heater without getting burned. It hasn't gotten hot enough to burn me. I did make a shield out of hardware cloth to keep my blankets at least four inches away from the heater just Incase. On low I can pretty much touch it without getting burned. Good luck.
You can set it for how long you want it to run. I live in my car and keep it on all the time in the winter. I have found a place to stay inside this winter so the car and heater are in storage so I don't have the heater in front of me to tell you much at this time. Good luck.
I usually live in my car but this winter I have found a place to stay indoors. I have long since lost the owners manual. The car and heater are in storage so I don't have the heater in front of me. Sorry. Good luck.
It's got a thermostat that you can set to the temperature you want. If you want a different temperature you have to set it to a different temperature just like the thermostat for your furnace. I live in a car and can set it for whatever temperature I want. Good luck.
no it doesn't have a battery
I think your asking if you could see a cost savings by using the NewAir Oil filled Radiant Portable Heater. If so, I'm going to say that it depends on several items: 1) your (and those you live with) heating habits prior to buying this heater. 2. Does your utility charge more for electricity use during certain portions of the day? 3. Is the room it is set up in a smallish room? If you or your members of the family crank the heat up when cold without regard to the thermostat setting, buying this heater may not have much impact on the heating bill. It's hard to overcome an ingrained habit, built over lifetime. This oil radiant heater does not work as quickly as a house heater to warm up a room. But after about 15 to 30 minutes, it does radiate heat. If you are using the heater during the times that the electrical company charges more, then you will see an increase in cost. These heaters are made for smallish rooms. They may even overheat the room. Ideally, the heater will be set up in a smallish room, and will be running during the off-peak times. It heats the oil intermittently, so it doesn't run all the time. In a bedroom, I keep the heater on low during the night, high in the early morning and off during the day when no one is around to need it. I think it has saved my family money, as no one is running over to the thermostat to raise the heat. This being said, your experience may vary from mine as there are no guarantees.
Mode buttons sets the temperature to maintain the desired temp. When I go to sleep, my bedroom is in the low 60's. So I set the mode to 65 degrees and it will go up to 65 degrees and maintain that temperature. It can go up to 70, 75 and 80 if I recall, and maintain that desired temp. With the scheduled timer you can have it hold that temp for 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours, before it shuts itself off.
This model does not have a remote control feature.
