Rated 1 out of 5 by Bob9908 The ATH1 could not keep the room warm.
I purchased an ATH1 after doing considerable on-line research into full room portable heaters using the following criteria: 1. Full room capable. 2. Portable. 3. 120v supply at less than 15amps. 4. Ability to manage room temperatures automatically. 5. Adjustable heat output and fan speed. 6. Easy controls. 7. Quiet operation. 8. Tip-over and Overtemp safety features. The Vornado ATH1 met all of the criteria. Unfortunately, in "real-life" operation, it was not able to keep this particular room warm enough (73*). Perhaps the "full room" designation does not apply to a bedroom that measures 10' x 20' which is a bit larger than normal perhaps and does have high quality patio doors at one end of the room. However, I purchased a competitors model (Lasko ceramic) at about half price, with all of the same criteria, and it is capable of keeping the room very warm even at today's -11* temperature outside. Unfortunate, but true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kiabsiab Excellent Product
I must say, I was skeptical when I first bought the product because it's light weight and looks like it doesnt have enough power. I was shockingly surprised when I turned the heater on. It heated up right away and you can adjust the temp up and down. Lowest was 50 which was a cool breeze that I would used at night and it works perfectly. Highest Temp was I believe 82. Amazingly heats up the entier room within minutes. Overall, this product is great. The heater blows the heat in every direction just like how the picture shows. It is light weight, small, but powerful, and very portable. It's an awesome item and I don't regret the price I paid for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SDCA1 Did not work as advertized
I have to unfortunatly leave bad feedback. When i received my heater it was not realitivly cold(about 50-60 degrees) however a few weeks ago we had a drop to about 40 degrees and this little heater just could not keep up (oh i live in coastal southern cali and i cant imagine if it was actually really cold outside). I left it set on 80 for at least 4 hours and there was no measuable difference in tempature in the room. I have used Vornado fans and i think they are the best and i was hoping the heaters would be the same however i would have to recomend buying a cheap space heater because they seem to work better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by snowbgone Not as expected
I purchased the Vornado tower heater because I have other Vornado products and they have been good. This heater does not project the heat very far. If you get more than 4 feet away from it all you feel is the air flow and not the heat. The price point was higher so I thought that would be an indicator too, but I guess not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TattooedMema1 Vornado® ATH1 Whole Room Tower Heater
This heater worked great when it was really cold & it doesn't take up much space at all.
For its size, it warmed my whole room.
And I love that it turns off when tipped over even a little bit. My dogs would start playing & knock it over & it turned right off. I like that safety feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by calijames858 Overall great product
This was oveall a great product and there were no suprises ( i received what i thought i ordered) the unit functions as it should and we have been very happy with it. It would be nice if you could run the fan without the heater ( i guess they need to sell you 2 products instead). as far as heating our room this product does the trick and it also has enough power to heat most of our house ( small house about 800 sq ft) I would recomend purchasing and i believe the extra dough it costs is acually worth it although the construction itself is a little cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by l8n33 Amazing Heater
We love this heater. Using it in the basement in our new media room. It's quiet and safe.. Has a cutoff switch on bottom so if kids knock over it powers off. It's cool to the touch and the digital display is flawless. It's a nice warm heat and is more than what we expected to heat such a large space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebyDo Vornado Compact V-Flow Heat Circulator
I just love everything about this very compact, portable heat circulator. It stands up to the excellent reputation of the Vornado product line. No oscillation is needed with this particular unit, as it features uniquely contoured air outlets that provide a wide span of constant heat. It enables a high volume of heat to continuously move throughout an entire room, with its' V-Flow heat circulation. At the present time, I am utilizing this heater to provide comfortable heat circulation in my living room. As advertised, "Why oscillate when you can circulate?" This technology affords a more effective way to circulate heat than typical tower heaters with inherent oscillating features. In fact, many other heaters without V-Flow heat circulation do not distribute warmth adequately throughout a room, as they tend to oscillate heat in a narrow range.
The Vornado ATH1 Whole Room Tower Heater not only affords comfort to everyone in the room, but it also has numerous desirable features. Specifically, it has a LED screen with easy-to-use electronic touch controls, an automatic safety switch and overheat shutoff protection, as well as 2 heat settings, and a "cool touch" case, even after hours of operation. Furthermore, this heater is very quiet to operate and has a very stylish design, typical of Vornado products. Finally, it is made of durable plastic, wipes clean, measures 7.88x5.49x20"H, has a sturdy base, and even has a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty. Although Vornado products are generally high-end, they certainly are most worthy of the price.
I purchased two of these particular heaters, based upon my former experience and subsequent confidence with respect to their products. Anyone looking for a quality whole room heater need not look any further. I have not encountered any problems to date utilizing the Vornado ATH1 Whole Room Tower Heater, and highly recommend it to the discerning buyer in this market.
