PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A stylish variation on the traditional whole-room heater design, the TVH500 uses vortex technology to quickly and quietly warm an entire room without any cold spots.

 
  • vortex technology disburses heat evenly throughout any space
  • easy-to-use controls with a digital LCD display
  • tip-over and overheat protection system with automatic safety shutoff
  • remains cool to the touch, even after hours of operation

Plastic. Measures 11.4x9.4x11.6"H. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Imported.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Heat for a small unit We used the heater in a small bedroom (15' x 14') for addition heat at night. The unit is very compact and doesn't require much space. However, it must be placed on the floor, not on an elevated surface, that has the correct angle to heat the room properly. I found finding the correct spot to place the unit was a bit tricky in a small space but with some rearranging was able to do so properly. Being able to set the desired temperature as well as seeing the current temperature in the room was a great feature. The unit did take a few minutes to heat up, but one it did the room got to the desired temperature fairly quickly. I was able to place my hand directly on the vents while it was running and while warm it did not present to be a burn risk. It also has an automatic turn off if the unit is tipped over, this I find to be a great safety feature for homes with children and pets. This unit is definitely a great purchace for reliable safe heating of a small area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I use this product to keep my feet warm on long winter nights on the low setting and sometimes to heat my bedroom up a little more than the rest of the house. The temperature sensor on the unit is not accurate after running for a long period of time, but it is expected. I ran this unit 24/7 to heat 1000 sq ft upstairs to test it's strength and put off an HVAC upgrade. It kept up through November in Kansas City in a raised ranch with newer windows and a poorly insulated attic and basement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not your typical space heater This is a really well made space heater. it is not your typical flimsy plastic space heater. It feels very solid and well built when i first took it out. The whole thing looks very sturdy. I really like that I can adjust the temperature and not just a meaningless 1-10 scale on most other heater. it's also great to be able to see the room temp on the same LCD display. It unique way of air circulation also means the room heats up really quickly. No more hot and cold spots from using my old space heater. The off timer is also a great feature when i don't want it run for too long. It claims it also helps circulating cold air in the summer but I have to wait until summer to test out that claim. I am not sure how durable this product as i've only been using it a short while. A good effective product so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hopeless controls After having owned a Vornado heater for over 20 years, I finally had to buy a new one. I went with one of the most expensive. But, unfortunately, you don't get what you pay for. The issues I have with the TVH500, which was quickly returned, are these: 1. Does not remember previous settings. When you turn it on, it is automatically on FAN and the temperature is set to 65 degrees. It's a HEATER. The default should be heat. But, really, it should go back to what it was set to. 2. The LED display is very difficult to read. It is black letters (which are not that black) against a medium blue background. There is little contrast. 3. The display only stays on for about 7 seconds. So, while you're stumbling to find a flashlight or magnifying glass to read it, it goes off. The LED display probably costs about 2 cents a day to run. It should just stay lit! 4. Unlit, the display is even more difficult to read. Impossible to read in a poorly lit room. Gee, I use it to heat a bedroom at night. Maybe I should leave the lights on. 5. In order to read the setting, you have to turn on the display. So, hit any function button and the display lights up. But, then, that function gets performed. So, for example, hit the UP key (to raise the set temperature): the light comes on, but the temperature setting is now 1 degree higher. 6. The thermostat was 3 sometimes 4 degrees off, as measured using 2 other very high quality thermometers. This was after running it for 3 - 4 hours in a 169 square foot room, with an external temperature of 55 degrees. 7. It is not very easy to carry. There is no handle, per se--just an indentation in the framework.
