I was looking for a quiet but effective heater, and that's exactly what I got in this low-profile convective electric heater. We had another similar heater for years which we left out in our sunroom one too many times, and finding a xmlnsnt wasn't easy, so I'm really happy to have found this one on-line. One thing I love about this one over my old heater is that I can explicitly set the temperature I want to maintain. And it's got that little "I'm hot" button that turns red when the grill gets hot, which then turns black when it's safe to touch it again. Nice! This type of heater works best set up next to a wall (NOT touching the wall) so that the heat can rise and then circulate throughout the room. And it is QUIET which, for me, is best of all because I work from home and spend a lot of time on the phone. The only sound is the thermostat clicking every now and then. This is a sturdy and effective heater for small and large rooms.
