This small-yet-powerful heater generates 5,118 BTUs an hour to warm an entire 10' x 12' room twice as fast as common models. It warms a room in just seven minutes, thanks to a vortex circulation system that continually distributes warmth more efficiently across a wider area to eliminate cold spots left by regular heaters. A sensor automatically adjusts heat output to maintain desired temperature, so heat is constant and even without the on/off cycle that limits the effectiveness of traditional heaters. A thermostat allows precise temperature selection, and the heater uses only the necessary amount of energy, up to 1,500 watts, to achieve appropriate temperature. The heating element does not glow like standard coils, and tight grill spirals on the front shut out curious fingers. The cabinet remains cool to the touch, and has a throttle regulation safety system that turns the heating element off in the event the heater tips over or the airflow becomes blocked. Manufactured in the U.S. 12" H x 9 1/2" W x 11 3/4" D. (5 1/4 lbs.)

from Long Beach, CA
Bought two at first (for living room and den/computer room) then bought the third for bedroom. They do indeed heat the whole room (bedroom w/out heater: 56F, with heater on High: 74F). We really haven't used the Auto Fan with temp selection, but did a short test when we received the heaters and it does work. On the Fan Only setting (no heat), it works better than the 15" desktop fans we used to use. On High Heat, the heater uses 1500 watts and up to 12.5 amp of current, so prolonged and frequent use of multiple units at this setting will show up on your electric bill. Besides the performance, the units are made in the USA and have a 5-year warranty, which HS extends under their standard lifetime warranty.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Small room heater. Big. Comfort.
from New Orleans
I must confess the box set in my room for a week before I got the nerve to "attempt" to get it out and start trying to use it. Imagine my surprise when all I had to do was open the box, plug it in and luxuriate in the warmth. Light weight. Small enough to tuck in anywhere. Works!

HammacherSchlemmer hits another home run
from catskill mountains
I already own an infra heater, but decided to trythe Vornado heater. What a bully little guy it is! Terrific. It heated up the room in just minutes! It's small, quiet and efficient. I'mdefinitely going to buy another. Highly recommend this product.

TOP QUALITY, QUIET & WELL WORTH IT!
from West Chester, PA
Our son's room is so cold at the end of the house. The heat never seems to get there -- the Vortex is great! We turn it on for about 20 minutues before he goes to bed, and the room is nice and toasty. A great buy!

Small, Lightweight and Effective
By Happy with H-S
from Williamsburg, VA
We use this heater in our den. It's the best heater we've ever used. It's quiet and efficient. Warms the entire room in no time.Surprisingly lightweight and smaller than expected which is a plus.Hammacher Schlemmer is our "Go-To" resource and we received this in a timely manner, knowing if we had any problem H-S would handle as efficiently as always.

Not impressed with the performance
from Roseburg, OR
The fan works the same on high as it does on low. Makes no difference in the velocity. It has not proved its value yet.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Use in the morning to take the chill off living room with cathedral ceilings.
Love it! Bought a second one!
from Catskill Mountains, New York state
This heater works quickly and efficiently towarm a room and to maintain a high degree of comfort. I loved it so much, I bought a second one. I highly recommend it. PS I have twoinfrared heaters, and, really, had I known beforeI purchased the infrared heaters, I would have purchased two more of the Vortex whole room heaters instead. Hammacher Schlemmer - A++ fora wonderful selection of quality products.
Works Well but Windy
from New Jersey
The Vornado room heater works well, heats a room quickly and quietly but, for me, the fan is too strong even at a low setting. I don't like wind and if I'm sitting across the room from it, the fan kicks up a draft that feels cool and unpleasant when what I'm looking for is heat. I prefer a fan that heats without wind.

We use this product in conjunction with our regularinternal home heating system. It does a great job andthe safety features appeal to us because we are an older couple (in our eighties)and the safety feature is important to us.
