Question:
If I wanted this heater to be off all night and come on at 6 in the morning, would there be a way to set this with the timer? Or some other way? I see there is no clock. Thanks.
- LV R. on 2014-10-11
Answer:
Nope, you'll have to hook it up with an external timer. I don't use mine with a timer, but I have timers which basically just plug-into the wall and have a 24-hour dial on them, with multiple tabs I can set for ???hour(s) ON" & ???hour(s) OFF." Any timer should accept a 3-prong electric cord & itself should be grounded??? (I???m not sure mine accepts 3-prongs.) As you may know, the 968 has a timer which can be set for 1 to 12 hours??? but this is the ???auto shut-off??? time (# of hours the unit will run until it automatically shuts-off). Of course, the heater won't "run" (won't generate heat) if the temp isn't lower than the unit's thermostat is set for. That said, I also own & use a 1500W Comfort Furnace Gold unit??? and the Dr. Heater heats up my rooms faster, and it???s a bit quiter, too! I wish I had bought the Dr. Heater first!
- Christopher B. on 2014-10-11
Answer:
not that I can tell the timer you can set to run from 1 to 12 hrs. then it shuts off
- paul d. on 2014-10-11
Question:
did this heater reduce the amount of $$ spent on heating your home?
- Anonymous on 2014-11-14
Answer:
Before we bought this heater our electric bill was so high we were going to have to move, so instead we put in a chimney & would stove. This warms the house some....but was still cold. Which is why I bought this heater. (Was very worried about the electric bill). But.... the goods new is, it heated my room up so good that I bought 2 more for the kids bedrooms!!! My husband gets too hot, but I LOVE it!!! And our electric bill..... our fish tank raised it more! If it raised it any I didn't notice &/or it wasn't much. Sorry for the long story, hope this helps!
- Melissa P. on 2014-11-15
Answer:
We haven't had it long enough to see what the heating bill be. We needed additional heating in over a thousand square foot room and this unit is fantastic. It gets turned on first thing in the morning and turned off at night. Turns off automatically when the set temperature is reached and back on when required. Love it. The only negative I have and it is more comestic then anything else is that the two stickers that are placed on the top of the unit are stuck there for life. I pulled and finally removed them but the finish is ruined. Will get a stain pen to fill in the damaged areas and that should do but it's a nuisance. Would I buy this unit again? Most definitely.
- Karen M. on 2014-11-15
Answer:
I live in a log home that doesn't have any duct work so we rely on a wood stove to heat the house, I only use this heater in my bedroom. Before I got this heater a glass of water would freeze over night in my room and now my room is kept at a comfortable temp. So I don't know if it saves us $ because we don't have a furnace but it is a very good product!

Recently purchased, so I don't have proper data yet to answer. But would be more than willing in a couple months. I can say it functions amazingly, very quite. More than likely will purchase another for my upstairs area.
- mark b. on 2014-11-15
Answer:
You would have to review your local electricity rates to make the comparison to the gas. These units burn up to 1.5 kilowatts per hour so normally the cost per kilowatt per hour can range from 7 cents to 15 cents per kilowatt per hour.

- Suzy H. on 2015-01-03
Answer:
Dr. Heater's website, as you may know, states "Designed & Engineered in USA". That doesn't answer your question ...but it does; just think about it a sec. In any case, the Dr. Heater 968 is more quiet than my same-priced Comfort Furnace 1500W CF0035 & it heats faster. *Excellent* manufacturer support, too.
