Rated 5 out of 5 by Liza Functions well and helps circulate and mix the air
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MacGuy One major weakness on an otherwise great heater
We had a VH2 heater for about 4-5 years, last winter in mild climate SCalifornia the power switch failed. What bugs me is that the heater was used only sporadically in an enclosed patio area during the years it worked. I estimate we used it less than 300 times during those years. The power switch looks like it is too flimsy for long duration use as it is only a fraction of the size of the one on an older Vornado model EH1 - 12 * Type VH we use elsewhere which has a much more robust (size, look and feel) power switch. If there is any one component any electrical device should have that is durable it is the power switch, when that fails all the great attributes and bells and whistles of the device are for nothing. The VH2 was a great heater when it worked but power switches should last much longer. I do not recommend the Vornado VH2 heater because of the flimsy power switch...get a heater with a robust switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marine This product is well worth the investment
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jillyd Very Disappointing
My recommendation for this particular space heater is to save your money. I live in an apartment and purchased the heater to warm up a living room - I don't use the furnace in the apartment. I have a small Holmes space heater that does a better job than this Vornado - I can leave this on for a couple of hours and the room is still not heated. Seems to just give off lukewarm to cool air and does not get the job done. Very disappointed in this purchase- did not meet expectations at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggie It does a great job.
I bought a Vornado heater a number of years ago and am very pleased with the product. The company stands behind its products. There was a recall on the first one I bought. I was sent the forms to return the heater; a new one was sent with no cost to me. I am very satisfied and would recommend the product without reservation. Because of this I chose the same brand when I needed to purchase an additional heater.
