Holmes HFH436WGL-UM

The Holmes U-Heater Fan with Bathroom Safe Plug is the ideal heater for just bathrooms. Some heaters are too bulky for the bathroom or dangerous with water, but this one is just the right size and built for the job. It comes equipped with digital controls, a timer for pre-heating, digital thermostat, 2 heat settings and its wall mountable so it is not taking up space on your counter. Waking up to a warm bathroom has never been easier.

Review Details

If you love waking up to a warm bathroom on those cold mornings, the Holmes U-Heater makes that possible. You can pre-heat your bathroom by using the timer on the heater, just set the time and the heater will make sure you have a nice warm bathroom right when you need it.

It has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a large and expensive space heater. If you do not want to take up space on your counter, you can mount the heater to the wall so it is out of the way. The bathroom safe plug makes it safe for use and will not blow your breaker.

What We Liked

  • Digital controls
    Digital controls make for easy use. You can easily adjust the comfort level in the bathroom to your liking.
  • Timer
    The timer is great for pre-heating the bathroom before use. No one likes a cold bathroom or getting out of a warm shower and stepping into a cold room.
  • Wall mountable
    Having a wall mountable heater is great for small rooms. They can be hung in a corner or out of the way so they are not taking up space.
  • Digital thermostat
    These make for easy to read temperatures. It is hard to read the numbers on raditional dials during the night.
  • 2 heat settings
    Multiple heat settings are great for stabilizing the heat throughout the room. One heat setting can make it too hot or not hot enough.

What We Didn't Like

  • Regular use can cause damage
    If the heater is used every day or on a regular basis for too long, like any other product, it may stop working.
  • Plastic
    Plastic is easily cracked and broken. If the heater is dropped or stepped on, it could cause some damage to the outside.


If you are looking for a small heater to heat your bathroom for a reasonable price, the Holmes U-Heater will do the job. Its digital display makes for easy reading and temperature setting and will make your bathroom cozy for your morning shower. This heater is easy to mount on the wall and easy to use. Not only is it easy to use, it has a bathroom safe alci plug to ensure that it is bathroom safe. It is a great heater for the price.
