    I rely heavily on reviews when making purchases. I feel it necessary to share my experience with this heater with others. I really liked it at first. It throws off quite a lot of heat. However, I am returning it. I always unplug it before we leave the house or go to bed. When I unplugged it last night (after using it for 4 days), the cord felt warm, and the plug felt even warmer. When I touched the prongs on the plug, it was so hot that had I not pulled my fingers away immediately, it would have burnt my skin. I definitely would not recommend this heater. It seems to be drawing too much current, so I’m afraid it is a possible fire hazard.

    Had edenpure heater for 10yrs and it was great.This Dr. Heater unit is a bit smaller in stature but has all the features and works just as well so far. Keeps the central heat from coming on all night and is a little bit quieter. I’ll give 4 stars , but if it lasts for 5 years I’ll give it 5 stars..

    I bought this brand of heater because of the reviews. We only use infrared heaters to heat our two bedroom ranch home. I set this one at the end of the hallway where the bedrooms and bathroom is. We have two other ones in our 24×24 living room. This one I like because it has a rotating fan that blows back and forth. So being basically in front of the bathroom it throws heat in there and travels down the hall to the bedrooms. We don’t like it extremely hot in our bedrooms and set it on 67. Last couple night dipped down into the single digits here in NY and it still kept the house nice and warm. The bathroom seems a little warmer then with our last one, which I really like when taking a shower. It has the humidifier attachment, but never used it yet. It also is a little smaller then our last one but it doesn’t affect it putting out a lot of heat. When it reaches 67 it turns itself off and comes back on when it drops below the set temperature. We Love it!

    I purchased this heater to help heat our 36 ft 5th wheel RV for the fall and winter. I am very pleased with the way that this heater works set the thermostat and let it do its job. The nights in North East Pennsylvania have been down in the 30s and this heater has kept the whole RV nice and warm the RV furnace has not kicked on since I started using this heater. The cabinet only warm to touch the cord is about 6 ft long it is easy to operate and comes with a handy remote only down fall is it is made in china

  5. DJ woodworker

    The unit comes in a nice looking cabinet. It was advertised to warm up to 1000sqft space. I have a small workshop of 600 soft and after running all night the room never got above 57degrees. If you want this unit for a living room, bedroom or room 400 soft or less then it will work great but if you plan to warm a room larger it is definitely not worth the money.

  6. Susan

    This heater is on wheels so it makes it extremely easy to move it around. It’s quiet and has a thermostat on it with a remote control that allows easy control of the heat temperature in the room. Without a thermostat, if you leave it on at night you can get baked out which is what happened with the other little heater we bought.

  7. Lynn

    This is a great little heater. We have had several IHeaters but this one is much better. It will easily heat (placed to blow through the door opening) several rooms comfortably. Really glad we purchased it. I wondered about it because it is a smaller size than others we have had. But it really works better.

    Reviews match the products!

  9. Nanny

    I bought this infrared heater for my daughter. It is awesome so far! It warms great, has wheels, remote control, timer, and safety features! It is so good that I asked one for myself!

  10. healey

    I read all of the reviews before purchasing this heater and they were all just wonderful, they are one of the reasons I did buy it, well I am going to disagree with all of them. I have a master bedroom that is approx. 850 sq. ft. and it will not warm it up, I have tried it on nite high, eco and it will not do the job, I have taken it off of this mode and just put it on high still will not get the room temp above 71-72, our temp at night has been 34-40 heater should do better than it is. Other heater I had 4+ years, did a great job and it was 1500. The other problem I have is it will not change to nite by remote, you have to change it over at the heater, bummer. State is TX

  11. pappa

    This heater model 978 is everything that is advertised. My other big 1500 watt heater puts out 125 degrees of heat. This smaller heater that is also 1500 watts puts out 158 degrees and has a powerfull fan. Its by far the best heater i have had. The only one i will buy from now on. I am totally happy with it.

  12. cjdj

    I used this off and on all winter. Today I noticed my outlet is brown, burned. I love this heater. It puts out a lot of heat. But, I don’t trust it now.

  13. Tim T

    Works excellent at keeping me from having to start the wood burner too often (AM and PM) 1906 Farmhouse still warm downstairs at 5AM (45°F outside). Much warmer upstairs as well. I prefer it cool upstairs but Mom likes it a minimum of 75 downstairs and three layers of blankets. Gets 68 and she swears it’s going to snow.
    Only draw back is thermostat isn’t accurate or there’s a draft on the floor. That’s what the remote is for.

  14. Steve L

    I bought this to use on my “she carport”! It is enclosed on 3 sides and has a roof, so I am fairly well protected from the weather, however it does get cold. So, I got this space heater and it works perfectly. It keeps me toasty while I enjoy the great outdoors.

  15. BobC

    Works Great ! It does what it is supposed to do. It looks great, not like the average space heater.
    It is very quiet and the remote control makes it very easy to use. I’ve used the heater for several
    weeks now as a ” Helper ” for my Florida Heat Pump which does not do the job when the
    temperature is in the 40’s. Set the temperature and the heater controls the temperature
    automatically. Wish I had it sooner. I highly recommend.

  16. JoAnn

    Highly recommend this heater. It heats our Florida room up quickly. Being able to adjust the temperature and the mode setting of Eco, high and low works really well and it comes with a remote if you prefer to use it instead. It has a timer setting but I haven’t tried it yet. When it got cold I could never use the Florida room, but now I can. It may be a small heater but it’s a wonderful heater. Thanks for a great product.

  17. Angry

    This made it just past 1 year and crapped out. I received it on Feb. 8, 2021 and it went to crap on Feb. 10, 2022. Turns itself off constantly. Sometimes if you unplug it and plug it back up you can get it to come back on, but most times it will not. I fear the safety of it trying to get it to come on anymore.

  18. PhillipC

    This little powerhouse does a great job warming up the half of the house I spend most of my time in. I have used it in economy mode for the last few days for a few hours a day to take the edge off the house. Looking at my daily electric use I barely noticed an increase, so very efficient. It is very quiet and my dogs don’t even bother it.

  19. Charles

    Works great. Looks great. I have purchased several space heaters over the years. This is the best!
    I highly recommend it. I am sure you will agree.

  20. MOSuz

    Warmed approximately 1400 open square feet of our finished basement. Exactly what we were hoping for.

  21. Magic

    So far very happy. Easy website ordering, and arrived in good condition, and on time. Heats my 10’ x 15’ enclosed, minimally insulated porch as expected. (to take the bite out of the cold nights)
    One speed fan. Three heat settings. Tip over shut off. Absolutely cool/cold to the touch top & sides. Very quiet. LED front read out is large enough to see without glasses. Wheels on the bottom of the cabinet, make moving it easy.
    Expectations… Infrared Quartz technology is new to my wife and myself as a space heater in our home. I have seen large units in business/work environments, and have felt the massive amount of heat that they can generate.
    After reading the paperwork that came with the Dr. Infrared Quartz heater, I plugged it in, turned it on, set the temperature on the unit to what I wanted… then asked my wife to ‘come take a look’. She liked the look and size of the heater, the easy to see readout, but… “how come the fan won’t change speed?”
    She thought… 1) I hooked it up wrong. 2) The heater is broken. “I hope you can send it back”. 3) This will never put out enough heat to do any good. 4) What a waste of money. AND… being married for some years… I’m sure there were some other things she was thinking.
    Approximately an hour later, we returned to the porch… and she immediately noticed a difference. As we sat there, I explained the Infrared Quartz heater isn’t the same type of space heater she had years ago. Give the heater some time to do it’s job. She still thought there should be a fan with several speed settings, to push the heat out faster. I was just about to regale her with the internet knowledge I researched on Infrared Quartz heating… AGAIN… being married for some years… I decided instead to throw some of my husband knowledge at her… “If you have a spoonful of hot soup, how do you cool it off?” So… isn’t using a big fan in a space heater, like cooling off your soup? She rolled her eyes.
    Later that evening we found ourselves on the porch again. I believe I’m just an average ‘Joe’… simple things make me happy… things like… I love you… let’s get married… it’s a boy… it’s a girl… are some of the most wonderful things to hear. The most gratifying thing a husband can hear is from his wife is… YOU WERE RIGHT. The temperature on the porch was spot on. Happy wife…..!
    4 star rating??? I have used several different styles and types of space heaters throughout my life, but this is the first Infrared Quartz heater I’ve owned. I have a ballpark expectation of… the cost to run a space heater… lifespan… durability… customer service. My rating will rise or fall depending how my expectations are met. 4 star rating (in my opinion) is the best rating for a never before owned product, used for less than a year.

  22. Mr Warm and Toasty

    The heater works great. Attached the humidifier with no trouble. You’ll have to fill the bottle 3-4 times a day. The humidifier does shut off when the bottle empties.

  23. Fire

    Awesome space heater, covers a large area. I bought two and my neighbor bought one after he seen how mine performed.

  24. Anonymous

    I like the size of this heater and I like that it has a humidifier installed. It easily heats my 20X23 ft. room.

  25. Bwell

    Nice small foot print reasonable amp draw, I use it in my one car garage (my workshop) to warm it some in the winter when working. Not yet real cold but I can tell it will do the job I need. Only minor disappointment is the timer seems to only tun the unit off not on.

  26. RebeccaS

    This little heater really puts off some heat! It immediately warms up and blows the hot air. It has a large digital screen so you can see when it’s reached the temperature you set. From the first use, there was no scary smells or smoking coming from it. I love that it has wheels and a cool to the touch outer casing. It’s also really cute.

  27. Chuckle

    It puts out A lot of heat & is cheap to use on electricity

  28. Jaydee

    I really didn’t want to spend this much money on a portable heater, but I’m sure glad I did! Since I no longer have central heat, my home gets pretty chilly on cold nights even though I live in NW Florida. I wanted a quality quartz heater with a remote and safety features that would allow me to get a good night’s sleep while leaving the heater on in my living room. I got all three, and then some, with this Dr. Infrared Heater! There are several models of Dr. Infrared Heater, but the price difference between the least expensive model (without enough safety features to satisfy me) and this model was only about 30 bucks. It was a no-brainer decision for me to spend the extra money and get the model with the most safety features. I’m really happy with this heater so far, and I highly recommend it! Oh, it also has a humidifier feature (distilled water only!) which I haven’t used yet because I’m not comfortable with my technical skills to try it, and I refuse to ask a man friend to do it for me!

  29. KinderSoul

    When I received these because I ordered 2 of them one came with no instructions or warranty card not a remote. Since I knew this was not fault I called the company directly and they sent me a remote asap. So I would definitely recommend and the Dr. infrared heaters.

    Replaced a similar heater with this one. Very easy to use and works efficiently..
