I checked into supplement heating.. a lot. If you want to heat one or two rooms and let the rest go I suppose these work. But so does an inexpensive box heater. A heat pump is the only way to use electricity that is energy efficient. I bought 2 mini split combo AC/Heat units. These work efficiently although I like the hot water baseboard that is the main heating source for our home. I just don't like the oil bills. If Edenpure worked as efficiently as the heat pumps I'd have several..
1500 watts x 3.4 = 5100 BTU the EdenPure has a rating of 110 cfm at 5100 btu the lesko towers are rated at 20 to 30 CFM at 5100 BTU what this boils down to is that the EdenPure will heat 3 to 4 times the space for the same watts 1500 x 3.4 or 5100 BTU dont get me wrong the lasko is a good heater and in a 250 to 333 SF room would preform = to the EP but a EP will heat a 1000 SF room a lasko will not so it depends on your needs room size,heat displacement, price and thermodynamics
i have 2 Eden Pure heaters i live in a mobile home in mn and have had them since 2006 7 years and going strong they work beter than any space heater i have tried they are more than a space heater they heat my hole house try that with a crematec cube heater in fact i have let my friends use them when there furnace crap out in the winter and they where amazed
The idea is so simple people just can't believe it...
They think they are so smart, they do not hesitate telling everyone how knowledgeable the are-all the while-the have no clue.
In a few years every heater will be based on this concept because it really does everything it says it can do!
You make a valid point, though it's actually more like buying a banana for $2.00 when you could buy it for fifty cents. Infrared heaters tend to be four or five times the cost of ceramic heaters. But some people like the way they produce and distribute heat better than ceramic or oil filled heaters, and find the difference in price negligible. (My ceramic heater cost me $55; my friend bought an infrared for $200; we both saved hundreds on our central heating bills, and both are happy.)
my bill goes way up with those cheapo radiator type heaters which produce little heat after hours of use. the edenpure heats very well is super quiet many people i know dont even cut on heat pump or furnace anymore the edenpure heats the whole house
You leave out the most important part, which is that you're paying hundreds of dollars for the SAME amount of heat you would get from a $40 heater. Whether it's infrared or resistance, the amount of heat produced is equal to the amount of electricity input. In this case 1500 watts input and 5000 btu output.
So of course it "works" but it's a little like buying a banana for $50 when there's one on the shelf next it for 50 cents.
@simplecommentary Small space heaters are not the same as they were when you were a kid. Not even the ones that are $15.
Where's the edenpure made, china? How long do they last on average before they fail? They don't try to sell you garbage little junk like extra filters for "shipping and handling" do they?
They saw you coming from a mile away. Proof that a con artist is always a step ahead of their mark.
One of the few people that love there 800 investment. I have 2 Lasko towers i paid 96 dollars for that heat the house the same as these do. People need to understand you can only get 5000 btu out of 1500 watts of electric. These do the same thing as all the other space heaters out there they just cost 4 times the amount of money.
eden pure has a built in humidifier, if you put water in it, it will humidify the air. my apri air 560 humidifier on my whole house furnace seems to work great. I live in st. louis missouri. cold as hell in the winter. dont need a piece of crap space heater.
richard karn says he loves his edenpure heater in his california home. i guess it works great when you have 75 degree days every day of the year. i paid 25 dollars for my 1500 watt space heater and it works fine.
