    I've been enjoying the use of the iControl whole room heater for awhile now. When I originally received it I was expecting to really only use it in the colder months to warm my body, but I've been enjoying it in the summer months as well. I take advantage of the fan only mode in the warmer months just to circulate air in our living room and have some air blowing on me when I'm specifically hot. Because of the unit's design, I can place it right up against the opposite wall and it will still blow a nice cooling breeze to me while I'm sitting on the couch. Of course, when I'm cold, having the Vornado iControl circulate all the colder air in the room and replace it with nicely warmed air is great! Don't think you'll only use this unit during one season though. The price is a bit high, but because of the use, I think it's worth it for a great unit like the iControl. Now if I could just find the include remote that I misplaced so I didn't have to get up to turn it on and off!

    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.

    The best !!

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

    We have gas heat--but since we discovered these heaters, we no longer use our gas heat at all. We have an 1800 sq. ft house and we have 4 of these heaters-this is all we use . They keep us nice and toastie. I would highly recommend the Vornado Heaters !! Paula Cox Byhalia,Ms


    Great product

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

    I was sceptic in the beginning, but this is definitely one of the best space heaters in this price segment. I am heating my 700sqf 1br NYC apartment and it works perfectly!

    It is a great little heater. Very quiet and heats the room well. You can feel it with in a minute or two.


    Outstanding Value

    By SteveinPA

    from Bethlehem, PA

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

    Dear Sir/Ma'am: I am writing to advise you that I am thoroughly impressed with the quality, value, and highly efficient performance of my new Vornado heater. It effectively warms a large basement area, that we would generally not use during the winter. Additionally, the product is made in the USA, which is a huge selling point as well.


    Great for sunroom!

    By Love2Garden

    from Papillion

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

    We have used this heater for two years in our Four Seasons (all glass) sunroom. While the sunroom was tied into our regular heating system when it was built 12 years ago, an all glass room, including the roof, is going to get cold when the temps fall to single digits and then below zero. This heater is all we need to keep the room nice enough to still use in the winter while keeping the plants happy, too. It is, without a doubt, the best we have had.


    Noise & Vibration

    By Greyfeather

    from Toronto, Ontario, Ca

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

    After installing both fans behind "Air Swiss" humidifiers to encourage humid air to circulate the room both fans started to vibrate and produce quite a bit of noise. I took the fan apart and traced the noise to a piece of spring wire use to hold the fan angle when directed to a specific angle. I made a hold down for this wire and the noise stopped. This was simply bad design and I hope the manufacturer will look to correcting this flaw in all further products

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

    I bought this after reading the reviews because I needed a fan for my apartment. It is worth absolutely every penny! I love how I can angle it in the living room and everyone can feel a breeze. I almost never use it on high because I get too cold. I generally sleep with it on the lowest setting. Love it!


    Finally a heater that gets the job done.

    By Gene

    from Chicago

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

    I use this heater to heat my basement. It keeps the basement comfortable because of the vortex air flow and automatic variable heat control. I also like the fact that it is so quiet.

    Worked the earlier purchase 24/7 through winter and summer until it finally broke down. After scanning competition, nothing beats the DVTH.


    does not shut completely down.

    By Joanz

    from Lima, ohio

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

    I have bought several vornado heaters and they were excellent. Bought my son one and my son in Colorado bought one. If I would of know that the digital one did not shut off after reaching the temperature, you set it on, I would have told my daughter not to buy it for me. I only set it on 66 because it does heat the room but then the cold air blows out when it reaches the correct temperature and may cool the room down a few degrees below 66, before the heat comes back on. I will buy another vornado but not one that does not shut off after it reaches temperature I have it set on. I gave my older one to my friend to use and she loves it. I will probably use this one as a fan in the summer time and see if I can find another one locally.


    Love the DVTH heater

    By Sharon

    from Evansville, IN

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

    My husband and I are very pleased with this heater. We have several Vornado heaters and had them for several years. We just got the DVTH heater last year and have been running it all the time. It really keeps our house warm. We keep our house at 72 degrees. Our kitchen, dinning room and living room is all open. All you do is press a button and it stays set where you left it when you turned it off. You can run it on high or low.

    very good fan

    By auk1

    from findlay

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

    Bought this fan about a year ago. I have a breezeway that is 20 feet long 6 feet wide with a 8 foot ceiling. I have a heater in the room but it was difficult to heat it in the winter because the temp. at one end of the room would always be colder at the other end and the ceiling always warmer than near the floor. I was a little skeptical at first on how evenly this fan would distribute the air in the room. I am very impressed with how well this fan keeps the whole room at the same temperature. I put thermometers in the corners, floor and ceiling to check how even the heat now was and the temp. on them is within 2 degrees of each other (before was a 15 degree difference). In the summer I move the fan to the bedroom which has a cathedral ceiling at around 15 feet at the peak. it keeps the room very comfortable and the fan is quiet enough that we leave it on all night and doesn't bother me or my wife when we sleep. when its really hot or really cold I'm running this fan 24/7 and it has never skipped a beat. Highly recommend this fan.

    Not really satisfied

    By rose

    from Memphis, Tn

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

    I have several Vornado heaters and this is the only one I have been disappointed with. It just does not seem to put out the heat the others do. I believe this is the most expensive one I have purchased. I don't care for the constantly moving light for the mode, room temp, and set temp.


    warms room up well!!

    By OldTimer

    from Tullahoma

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

    We have 2 of these and they work very well. We turn down the heat at nite and use the vornado and it keeps our bedroom nice and toasty. We also use one in the den when we are in there, which allows us to turn the thermostat down in the house. pretty quiet also. Bought one for my mother in law, that will be the real test!


    Poor Variable Output

    By BobE

    from Boston MA

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

    I am familiar with variable speed fan and heat output systems and was hoping this Vornado heater would deliver on the promise of a steady, gentle heating with reduced temperature fluctuations. Unfortunately, when the unit determines that there is no need for heat output at all and the heating element turns off the fan remains on at a low speed. This causes ambient air to blow and make you feel colder than you would without airflow. In this case the Vornado whole room vortex action is a detriment, especially in small rooms. The programing should be changed to turn the fan off if there is no call for heat. If some people like the continuous fan operation then provide a user option to select it. Beyond the undesirable continuous fan operation, the unit seems to have only two (maybe three?) stepped fan speeds when varying output, so instead of the fan ramping up or down gradually through many fan speeds, it just goes between high to low speed and thus the transition is very noticeable. Finally, the unit makes a continuous buzz/hum that is disconcerting. It is especially prominent at low fan speed when not masked by air movement sounds. You may get used to it after a while, but it’s not good for quiet environments.

    I bought 2 of these circulators, 1 white and 1 black, in July, 2014. I just took the white one back 10-Nov-2014 because it just quit running on all levels, low-med-high. The black one is still working properly. I guess I'll just wait and see.

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

    This heater is fantastic. I've had it for 5 years or so. What I like is that when you turn it on in a cold place, it'll start up strong ( I always use low setting) and then quiet down once the temperature is established. Just realize that the temperature at floor level is lower, so when you set the thermostat you don't need 68degrees unless you want a sauna. I usually set mine to 59degrees and the room will get up to a comfy 65degrees.


    Always good!

    I love his air circulator so much that I now have purchased 2 more for guest bedroom and den. Never a problem. owned them ( or their previous model) for many years. Keep us all comfortable in the hot days of summer. Helps with cutting back on the air conditioner at night.


    Whisper Quiet

    This is a repeat purchase of a fine quality product. I run these whisper quiet heaters 24/7/365. When they're not heating up the room, they are quietly circulating the air. The remote control makes this purchase even better.

    I love this Vornado so much that I have several at home plus one I took to work. I wanted to comment that Vornado has excellent customer service. The control knob on my Vornado at work broke. I contacted Vornado customer service and got a response in less than 24 hours. They are sending me a replacement!

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

    I purchased this vornado for my Dad who is a senior citizen. It was not operating correctly and he misplaced the receipt. I called vornado and got the most awesome service. I spoke to Harold Wray who is not only knowledgeable but well spoken. He instructed me on how to get a replacement. Im in Canada and he was in the States. Within 2 days I received a new vornado. Talk about customer service!!!!! This is somewhat of a rarity these days.


    Very effective fans make a great purchase

    By missysmom

    from St. Petersburg, FL

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

    I purchased two of these fans to help save money on my electric bill as i moved into a new apartment in the middle of a hot Florida summer. I was a bit worried becuase it didn't oscillate like my previous fans, but I am so glad i bought these. They produce more than enough air circulation and keep my dog and I very cool.I haven't needed to turn the air on at all since I moved in - my dog even likes sitting near them when on low so she doesnt blow away! I admit they are more noisy than other fan, but that comes from efficient moving of that amount of air. So if you want pin-drop quiet these are not the product for you, but if you want a well-made and effective product, you will find your money well spent.

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

    This item is awesome! Nothing else like it! I wish I had another one just like it. These circulators are expensive but well worth it. Mine is 8 years old and still works like yesterday. Only negative side is that the plastic rotating base broke because it isnt the strongest. If you dont have one, get one, you wont regret it!

    worked pretty well for about a year

    By dkilgore

    from Portland Oregon

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

    We got one of these for a wedding gift. It was pretty nice and circulated the air well, not too noisy. Then just after our year anniversary it just stoked working. I would hope a fan this expensive would have lasted much longer than that, but unfortunately we are now in the market for a new on and I'm going to be going with something cheaper.


    Excellent....but ONE small thing...

    By JakeELee

    from DC

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

    This fan is amazing, but the only thing that would make it perfect - please add a clasp (or hook), something that you can wrap up the cable with when you travel with it. You have this amazing fan, but then you have no where to put the cord and it ends up dangling on the ground which can cause damage. The musician community would greatly appreciating adding this feature that would make it a solid 5 STARS!!!!

    Fan Selector speed knob cracked with in 4 months of use and would not work to change speeds. Really liked the fan until this issue-fairly quiet and moved air efficiently.
