I have one and it heats my basement family room very well and I have been using it for 3 years now.
Ahh nice and toasty.

I love them they are way to good to be compared to a $25 heater.

It seems that not everyone knows how these heaters work. That might be because there is very little detailed information about them on the Web. They use bulbs that heat air that's directed around them. That's about the only meaningful information on the company's Website about how they work and why they "can" lower your heating bill.

Now compare what you read on the Aerus site for their "Guardian Heater". They explain exactly how their ceramic core works (not with light bulbs - this isn't an Easybake oven) and why it's energy efficient. They have all the cool bells and whistles on their heater (auto-off, thermostat, remote control, etc.), and they talk to you like a smart consumer, not a fool.

I haven't bought one (I can't afford it right now), but I've been in a room with the Aerus heater, and it works as advertised. Read the info on ALL these space heaters for sale. You'll see the difference and you'll be happy with what you buy.

I bought an Eden Pure this weekend.
We plugged it in and........WOW!
Almost immediately, not only was the entire houses 80 F, but when I walked outside I noticed the meter was spinning backwards!
Power was being fed back...INTO...the electric grid!
Thanks, Eden Pure!!!!(lol)

The Aerus heater is not and cannot be more efficient than any other electric space heater. That being said, any heater such as Aerus,QMark, Delonghi, Cadet Soft Heat, Hydrosil and even EdenPURE that have liquid, copper or ceramic or heat exchangers can buffer the off/on heat cycle for less temperature swing. A variable wattage digital thermostat can have the same effect. There might be some energy savings from this approach due to the ease of maintaining a stable comfort level but it would be hard to track and would not be as significant as advertised. The question then becomes how much is one willing to spend on a heater.

I got my edenpure heater last week and wah wah weee wah! this thing not only warmed my house to its most comfortable level ever, it did so without me using the gas furnace AT ALL. Then it filtered all the air in my house, removing harmful contaminants and noxious vapors. Then it reinsulated my attic, weather-sealed all my windows and doors, took my dog for a walk, cured me of impotence, doubled my bank account, and ended world hunger! and it makes great pizza! and it reduced my cable bill!

you gotta get yours today! it's amazing!

ok, i see all the comments, good and bad, for these heaters. what i want to know is THIS - we need a heater like they claim - doesn't get hot on the outside etc.... we have cats and we're putting together a delightful cat shed for fosters.(hell, it's nicer than the damn house i think!)... anyway. we have a little ac in there for summer (and a ceiling fan). now winter... we don't want a regular space heater in there. so tell me.... thoughts on this? that's the only reason i would buy one of these...the personal size....is that maybe it wouldn't suck so much electricity as a space heater (and omg they suck some money)... and it would be ok for the cats to be around.

If you give a cat a fire, it stays warm for a day.

If you set a cat on fire, it stays warm for the rest of its life.

It would be safe for cats, but will suck as much electricity as any space heater of the same wattage.

We have two the 1000 and 1000XL's, Let me save some of you alot of money, The replacement Bulbs keep going up and up, and they need to be replaced every 2 years. Feb of 08 we paid $50.00 for the set of six, now Feb of 11, they want $94.80 for the same set. At $400.00 an Edenpure, your electric does go up, paying almost $100.00 mor every two years for bulbs, you do the math. The experts all say a 1500w heater produces the same no matter what false claims are behind them. Not to mention, the customer service is terrible, to many 1-800#'s and they make you wait listen to a recording telling you you will wait less than a minute, save your money, I wish I had found these complaint fourms sooner.

If you shave your cats and feed their hair into your pre-heated Eden Pure they'll work much more efficiently.

oh my, i'm sorry you lost your baby... our vet raises maine coons and she has a few up at the office that are ... well... they render me speechless everytime i see them!

we rescue and foster... and we bought a 12x16 shed, with loft, ledge, windows... and we're fixing it up for kitties. we have to insulate it and put paneling up... and then it'll be ready. we already have a little a.c. unit in... a couple of awesome cat tower/trees... etc etc...hell, we're even thinking about building 'em a screen porch cuz where it's at, there's a little creek and birds and deer and all sorts of stuff they'd love to go out and watch.

but anyway! we have summer covered (we even have a ceiling fan)... but winter not so much. want something SAFE .... so i was kindof investigating this thing.....

A liquid filled baseboard unit such as Hydrosil, Cadet Soft Heat or QMark might be better as there would be no fan or filter problem with cat hair.

Wow this is ridiciluous. Any company that hires buffoons and suckers that try to latch onto websites like this to advertise using "grassroots" good ol' country folks who can't spell correkt-lee... well I can't say I would advertise my employment at a fraud of a company like this. Heater salesman? HAHAHAHA... Go grow some weed in Cali. At least it works as advertised and you can make a ton more money... Plus I'd be less embarassed about that job...

The best electric heaters incorporate a thermal mass or thermal battery, such as an oil bath or a block or sphere of metal such as copper. The thermal mass retains heat so that heat can be evenly distributed over time. A thermal battery saves electricity and makes for better heating efficiency.

It also helps to humidify air, as moist air has a better heat carrying capacity than dry air.

While it is true that a thermal mass can even out the bumps in temperature it can do nothing to affect humidity. It could possibly save electricity if it prevented the user from setting the thermostat higher to raise the low points in the temperature curve.
