DeLonghi HMP1500

The DeLonghi Mica Panel Heater is a new kind of space heater. Unlike the space heaters that sit on the floor, this one is flat and wall mountable. Its adjustable thermostat gives off the perfect amount of heat and the wheels allow for easy movement from room to room (in case you don't mount it). If you accidentally knock it over, it has an internal tip-over cutoff feature for added safety.

Review Details

The DeLonghi Mica heater has many features that you would want in a heater. It has a modern look that will fit the décor of any home and it is lightweight enough to be easily moved around. One of the best parts about this heater is that it is wall mountable, but if you do not want it mounted, you can use the wheels on the bottom for easy portability. The power light is easy to see and if the heater gets too hot, it will turn off by itself.

What We Liked

  • Freestanding OR wall mountable
    Having a heater that is freestanding and wall mountable is great. If you want to mount it and keep it stationary or roll it from room to room, this heater has the option.
  • Two heat settings
    Heaters that have multiple heat settings are ideal. Instead of having one setting, hot, this heater has a low heat and a high heat frequency for optimal comfort.
  • Adjustable thermostat
    Adjustable thermostats make it easy to control the heat levels in whatever room the heater is in. Some rooms need a small boost while others need a larger boost. These controls help equal out the heat flow in each room.
  • Frost Prevention mode
    No matter what temperature it is, the heater will maintain at least a 40 degree F temperature to prevent freezing.
  • Internal tip-over switch
    Fires are easily started when heaters are tipped over and left for periods of time. The shut-off mode will automatically shut the heater off if it becomes tipped over or unstable.
  • Safety thermal cut-off
    Ordinary heaters with no safety features can be easily overheated, causing fires or damage to the heater. The cut-off automatically turns the heater off if it becomes too hot.

What We Didn't Like

  • It is very thin
    Since it is so thin, it may be easily damaged if stepped on or dropped.
  • Wheels
    The wheels extend out quite a bit. This could make for awkward storage and if it is sitting on the floor, they could be easily tripped over.

Conclusion

The DeLonghi Mica Panel Heater is definitely worth the money. It has many safety features that a lot of people look for in a heater. The heater is lightweight and easily moved around on its wheels, but it also comes with wall mounts if you want the heater to be mounted onto a wall. Overall, it is a nice product with great features.
