    We've owned this product for about 2.5 yrs and use it at our camp (1200 sq ft) located in the Northeast USA. It takes the chill off when the nights get cool during the Spring, Summer and Fall. In the winter, we use this unit to help mix the air and supplement the forced air heating system. We keep the camp at 45 degrees in the dead of winter when we're not there. When we arrive to camp in the Winter (usually 10-20 degrees F outside, we set our heater to 65 degrees and turn on the Vornado in the bottom living area which is about 650 sq ft. The Vornado helps increase the temp raise about 6-8 degrees in that first hour. We then move the Vornado to a table and point it upstairs to start circulating the air up there. At bedtime, we use it upstairs in the hallway pointing towards our bedroom and it keeps us cozy warm all night long. We are fortunate to have a very well insulated structure as it is only 1.5 years old and the Vornado is a great supplemental heater. We're buying another Vornado and will use that too.

    I bought three VH-2 heaters for my employees and later two more. The heaters get extensive use during upstate NY winters. After two years we returned two of the heaters for repairs (under warranty). Another was out of warranty, and we judged it not worth the cost to send it back for factory repair. Now another one has broken down. The problems appear to be in the the thermostat and the power switch. The power switch is frozen in the "on" position, so the device needs to be unplugged to turn it off. In addition, the thermostat no longer regulates to a heating temperature, and mostly it blows cool air. The company needs to focus on the quality of its switch devices.

    This product fails within a year

    By Wyoman

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    We use this to heat a average sized basement room where my wife sews, crafts, etc. It is very quiet and heats the whole room efficiently and comfortably. However I had to replace the first one after several months when it quit. Fortunately the store I purchased it at was willing to take it back one time even though it was after their normal return time. Now the second one is failing after less than a year. It still heats, but the fan will not spin. I have to try to help spin it before the emergency shut off kicks in. Very frustrated with an otherwise good heater. Don't want to have to replace it every year.

    This is the second unit of this type I have purchased. I like it because you have to "continues on" option for the fan. This gives much more uniform heating.

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    Efficient and quite stylish, small in size, a great space heater. Circulates air over a 120 degree area; it's quiet; thermostatic and has some money saving features: temp and wattage choice. Very good buy.

    Without question the worst space heater

    By Disappointed1

    from Greensburg

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    I own a small one bedroom apartment and this product will barely heat the bathroom. In the bedroom (14x12) the heater will not do a thing and will actually blow cold air when set to continuous use. And will continually turn on and immediately off when set to auto mode. Could seriously heat the Apartment more efficiently with two baseboard heat units that are 30 years old. Would not take another vornado heater if I was paid to. Without question the worst purchase made since the pet rock.

    This is the best company I have ever dealt with. Their personnel, especially in the service department, is terrific. They went out of their way to make sure all of my needs were taken care of. The unit is working efficiently. I would not hesitate to recommend their products to anyone. I just wish all companies were like this one.

    Wonderful large room heater

    By CardsFan

    from Louisville, KY

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    I have owned my heater for about 3-4 years. The heater does a great job heating small, medium, and larger rooms. I had a huge room with on heat vent with vaulted ceilings and the Vornado would warm that room to a comfortable temp. The only issues I have if with the device's control panel. I have had two different ones replaced of fixed because of issues. However the people at Vornado have been wonderful replacing or repairing my equipment. Paid for shipping it back to them and had my heater back to me in less then a week. I have notice that the control panel looks different then the last and believe that they are working hard to fix the bug. Would definitely recommend this heater.

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    We purchaced this heater for our 15x15 kitchen and so far this little unit does what is written in the product info. We used other heaters in the past but would notice cold areas not far from that unit. The VH2 product keeps the room warm and the temp is constant. I have my eye on another Vornado product the TVH500.

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    Bought 2; bought 2 more. Works great, quiet enough to hear a TV at a comfortable volume, energy efficient, automatic shutoff if knocked over, optional fan switch for summer and winter to circulate cool or warm air, and it has a thermostat to adjust the heat so the heater cycles. Heats a 20'x16' room to 'cozy' in about 10 minutes and keeps it that way until it is turned off or tips over.
    To clean: Remove dust from the fan blades with a gas station air hose or a can of compressed air used to clean keyboards and computer componants. Quick Fix/Reset: IF the heater turns itself off unexpectedly and refuses to behave, unplug the heater and use a 5/16th's hexagonal socket wrench to turn each of the 2 white buttons on the back of the heater. Turn each white button 1/8" clockwise. Doing this will reset the heater and it should run perfectly again. If the heater still fails to behave, tweak the white buttons a little more clockwise. Remember to plug the heater in again before using it.

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    We use our Vornado heaters in craft rooms, office, bedrooms, den, and near pets' beds in cold weather. The Vornados have lowered our heating bills substantially and create a warm, cozy feel to rooms day and night. Easy access to the controls, their small footprint, and the quiet heating element and fan are ideal qualities in these heaters. The heaters turn off automatically when tipped, so that safety feature is appreciated. Cool to the touch and the built-in handle make it easy to move. There is a major concern, though, after a year's use of these heaters. Dust accumulates inside the fan where a vacuum cannot reach it. The dust interferes with the operation of the heater/fans and the heaters will not function. To get the heaters operational, the housing has to be unscrewed and the dust blown out with a can of aerosol air at pressure or vacuumed. Once the dust is removed and the housing screwed back on, the Vornados are good-to-go for another year.

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    We purchased this to heat an exposed, 8 x 10 sunroom where we eat our breakfasts and lunches--the room is not heated otherwise so we needed something to warm it fast. Had an Eden Pure that wouldn't do the job. This vornado warms it quickly and evenly. I'd highly recommend this product.

    Best Service in Years

    By primary3

    from Austin

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    We have three of these room heaters and the last one started making a knocking noise right after we got it. We live in TX so didn't have to use it much and packed it up in the Spring. When we pulled it out for the winter I realized it was still broken and we never sent it back as intended. I found out it was still under warranty and sent it back for repair. Vornado paid for shipping both ways, repaired and sent it back with a lifetime membership 20% discount! Not only is this product made in the USA, the customer service is the best I've experienced in years.

    This little guy is an incredible whole room heater. We use it in our baby's room at night to make him more comfortable since he doesn't sleep with a blanket. The heater sits in the corner and it seems that the temperature of the room is exactly the same no matter where you are standing. It warms up the entire bedroom easily and keeps a consistent temp with the "auto" function. HIGHLY recommended!!

    Powerful Little Thing

    By toastysmom2

    from Norwood, MA

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    When my furnace died last year and couldn't be fixed for over a week I went out and bought myself a VH2. Now, I never had heard of it, but it was priced right and I was in a fix. What a great product!!! I left it on overnight the first night and I'm not kidding you when I tell you that that little heater actually warmed up my huge family room and kitchen attached. It was as if the furnace was working in those two rooms. I was shocked. Then when I got my electric bill having had it on for such a long period, I was surprised at how low it was. Plan to buy them as Christmas presents for my poor friends who have oil heat!!! They will need a true booster.

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    I purchased this heater about six years ago. It really did put out the heat, and kept my 15x16 bedroom nice and warm, but it blew a fuse twice, I moved it from my bedroom to the 12x14 tv room. For several years it worked fine, however this year when I cut it on, it starts blowing out hot air, and within five minutes the air is blowing cold. It eventually warms the room, but not a comfortable level. I am not sure what the problem is, but I am retiring this heater. I recently purchased a tvh600 vornadon but have not the chance to use it,

    This product is well worth the investment

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    I have 2 of the Amish mantle heaters. They are big, expensive and hard to move around. They heat OK but they are so bulky. We recently bought a Vornado VH2. We have the vaulted ceilings in our home and also have passive solar. When the sun is out during the winter the home is toasty until about 8PM. This vornado is a great buy. It heats our room up fast and keeps it warm. The nice thing is that I have not had to have it running on high constantly. With the Amish mantle heaters you do need to run them on high. Our weather in Montanta has been below zero - around 25 below for several days. The vornado did a good job. I am going to buy another one. The VH2 is fine for us. It is not digital and that is more than fine with us. One less thing to go wrong.

    One Great Heater

    By Herb

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    You can buy a cheaper heater, but you get what you pay for, and you can't buy a better heater, than the Vornado. We have heated our house for the last five years, with nothing but the Vornado heaters. The heating bill is less than half, what it was. I like a cool bedroom, so I shut off the heat and used a Vornado heater. It did a great job. Then the main heater broke down, so I bought more Vornado heaters and they did such a good job, at a lower cost, that I never did get the furnace repaired. I would recommend the Vornado to anyone.

There is only a nice gentle lukewarm breeze coming out of it. I cannot get the temperature in the room any higher than 40 degrees. I will have to look for a heater that I can use.

We turn our heater down in the rest of the house every night in the winter and it keeps our room very comfortable and if we wanted it to, this thing could make us sweat bullets! Its that good! We have recommended it to everyone and anyone we know because it has saved us a TON on our bills in the winter time here in Kansas. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

    Comments about Vornado® Whole Room Heater (EH1-0020-01):

    We received this heater as a Christmas gift a year ago, and it's been great! First, if you're looking for a heater to sit at your feet to get you warm, this is not the one for you. This heater is designed to heat a room and does and amazing job at doing so! You wouldn't know it putting a hand in front of it, since the air coming out is around 120 degrees. Other heaters we have owned put out more heat, but you need to be close or on top of it to feel the heat. This heater spreads the heat all around the room with no cold spots. Would definitely recommend this product and actually have a second one on order!

    I LOVE my Vornado heaters! I have three of them (2 are like these and one is the Intellitemp model). They are used in different rooms of my house, I also bought one for my Mom's drafty old home in Georgia. The South Georgia winters kill me! Colorado winters are a "walk in the park" compared to the Southeast! A friend came to visit me and loved my heater. She went right out and got one for herself!
