The Vornado Whole Room Vortex Heater is an energy saving heater that supplies a whole room full of comforting warmth. Not only does the Vornado create heat, it circulates the heat through an entire 150 square foot room and can remain on for hours on end without becoming hot to touch. One of the nicest features of the Vortex heater is that it has temperature controls and 3 heat settings which makes it easier to control the comfort level in the room.
The Vornado Whole Room Vortex Heater is a nice energy saving heater with many features such as running for hours on end without overheating. The Vornado is quiet to run, cool to touch, energy efficient and safe to use with children and pets in the home. If the heater gets knocked over by a child, pet or anything else, it will cut the heat off to prevent a fire from starting.
The Vornado only heats a small amount of square footage, which is nice for small offices or bedrooms. If you want to use it in a larger room, you may not get the right amount of heat that you are looking for.
What We Liked
- Whole room circulation
Unlike traditional heaters that only heat the space around it, this one circulates the heat throughout the room on its own.
- Tip-over switch
This is great if you have children or pets. If the heater gets accidentally knocked over, it will shut off to avoid a fire.
- 3 heat settings
Great for optimal comfort. Instead of having one hot setting, there are 3 different settings to put out 3 different watts.
- Thermostatic temperature controls
You are in charge of how hot it gets. If you like your rooms set at a certain temperature, you can set it for that on the heater.
What We Didn't Like
- Indoor use only
Even though this would be great in a tent for camping, it can only be used indoors.
- Plastic shell
Plastic shells can be easily cracked or broken if stepped on or dropped.
The Vornado Whole Room Vortex Heater does what it was made to do. This heater can heat a 150 square foot area with convection technology, is ETL listed and can save you some money on your next electric bill.
The Vornado is perfect for any home because is safe for kids and pets. This heater is also cool to touch, comes with a 5 year warranty and has almost everything you would want in an energy efficient heater. The safety features themselves make the heater well worth the price.
