VH2 1500-Watt Whole Room Portable Vortex Heater

Product Overview

The VH2 Whole Room Heater is not your average space heater. With Vornado's Vortex action you get the signature Vortex energy efficient technology that evenly heats the entire room at an affordable price! This is unlike most space heaters that heat the space directly in front of the unit with the heat immediately rising to the ceiling. The VH2 not only generates heat but circulates it throughout the entire room. This whole room heater has a simple to use turn-dial thermostatic temperature control knob. Simply heat the room to a comfortable level and then turn the dial back until the heater shuts off. The Vortex Heater will then maintain that temperature within 3 to 4 degrees. This VH2 heater is whisper-quiet and has advanced safety features cool-touch exterior, automatic tip-over and over-heat protection to provide worry-free use. The Vornado VH2 was a good housekeeping Research Institute top safety pick in the Feb. 2008 issue. Vornado energy Efficient Whole Room Heaters are different from traditional space heaters. Vornado portable space heaters are more energy efficient thanks to unique vortex action which disburse heat evenly throughout the room. This more efficient movement of air saves energy, allowing the Vornado electric heater to warm an entire room in less time! Most ordinary space heaters heat the space directly in front of the heater leaving the rest of the room cold, which contributes to running heaters longer and at higher temperatures and using more energy.

does this need a dedicated outlet?

Asked by jerry November 29, 2015

Answer

On high, the heater will use 12.5 amps. Most home circuits are 15 amps. It would be best if the heater was the only thing on the circuit.

can an ext. cord be used

No, none of our heaters should be used with an extension cord of any type.

Does the product off just a fan mode, as well as heater?

Asked by Meg November 16, 2015
1
Answer

The VH2 Heater does have a "fan only" mode that will circulate air without heating but it is a slower circulation than if you were using a regular fan or circulator. The volume of air will be less.

Estimated cost efficiency

Asked by horseman55 October 19, 2014
1
Answer

It is difficult to provide estimate cost of using our whole room heaters, the cost per KWH from your electrical company would need to be applied. Our whole room heaters are designed to meet the set temperature selected on the heater, once the set temperature is reached, the heating element and fan will shut off depending on the model of heater. On certain models, the fan will slow down and continue to run for climate control when the heating element shuts off. Vornado's whole room heaters are designed to heat the whole room using air circulation throughout the space.

Nice heater for a smaller bedroom. Used in addition to regular house furnace as the room tends to be chilly on extremely cold days and nights. Although I would not say it is noisy, the fan feature does make a louder sound than I thought it would. Overall, it does a good job in warming the room.

I returned the heater. I had hoped for a heater that would direct the heat. The Vornado is a whole room heater and directs the heat all over the room. I know that heat rises in cold air so it would take forever to get the heat to extend down to the floor.

I love the way the units will heat the WHOLE room---not just an area of a room. And it is a very comfortable heat which does not dry the air. The only problem is that these last for one or two winter seasons. The heating element burns out. But it is worth it to me as I like how they work!

Cycling on low, heats a large living room to a comfortable temperature in an old house on chilly days. When temps fall below 32F, this heater augments ancient wall electric heater to keep whole room toasty, instead of the usual "broil or freeze." Circulates heat well, without creating a draft.

Tried two of these units that both had control issues that I consider design flaws. The thermostat constantly flipped the heating element on and off; some sort of de-bounced switch is needed. This behavior causes sudden power surges that can trip circuit breakers, especially in older systems.

I already owned one of these very happy with it. the new one I just received is very noisy not like the other one. If it was easy to take this one back I would. I live in Hawaii where everything has to be shipped in, I work long hrs so I order online and have delivered to my home. The post office where I live closes at 4 before I get off work and on Saturdays has reduced hrs. of operation.

Great heater. Very quiet operation. Can be used simply as a cooling fan too. I prefer this model because, in the heating mode, you can set the fan to remain on once the proper temperature has been reached. Other heaters go on and off which can be irritating if you are sound sensitive.
