I'm looking for a space heater that doesn't smell like burning chemicals or make a lot of noise. This would be for my preschooler's small bedroom. Previously tried a metal one that roared, rattled, and glowed brightly, then a plastic one that smells like burning plastic (also roared and rattled). I'm considering the ''eco'' panels that you install on the wall, but some negative reviews about cracking and so forth on amazon.com give me pause. Have a heater that you can recommend in your kid's room?
I'm looking for a recommendation for a space heater that works efficiently, i.e. that will heat a big room nicely and not suck up too much electricity. This will be for a bedroom we share with our baby in his crib. Thanks! Amy
When I returned it, I noticed there was a DeLonghi heater which looked quite similar, but was only about 14'' tall. I plugged in the floor model, and it was much quieter, so I brought it home (cheaper too, about $30). You can set it to run on low or high, oscillate or not, and there is a timer option as well as a thermostat. I set the thermostat and let it go. I can keep the house thermostat down, but I know his room is a little warmer. And with the oscillation, I think it would be better for a bedroom than the big dish-style space heaters. Bryan
We have a portable space heater that looks like a radiator and has circulating oil in it. We assumed it was safe to use around the house. Two days ago our four years old daughter played in her playroom. The radiator was placed against a book case by the wall. Our daughter slipped and fell on the radiator which in turn fell on her causing her pretty bad burns. I'm writing this to alert all of you of the dangers of such a heater. The following day I rushed to the store and bought a heater that is totally cool to the touch and that once it tips over it shuts off and can only be turned on again after being unplugged. Wish I've done that a week ago... Na'ama
