The unit seems to heat o.k.. Too early to tell how it affects my electic bill. The units temperature setting is useless. Either the thermostat is broke or it does not work at all. I am considering returning this unit.
I was planning to buy a space heater for a while and I say one at my dentist office which looked nice. It generated pretty good heat. I decided that I need to get one of those. So when I saw this on Buy.com I ordered it. I was disappointed with the performance of Lifesmart, it was not generating the amount of heat as I experienced in my dentist office. Unfortunately, I did write down the manufacturer which is at the dentist office, but it looked the same as Lifesmart.
There was an error due to a sensor that was defective. The replacement part was provided quickly by Lifesmart and it has been working perfectly since the repair. Actually makes me feel better about their products given the excellent support, as they offered to replace it if I was unwilling to perform the simple repairs.
