I am shopping for a space heater. Would someone tell me whether "Quartz" and "infra-red" used for these heaters is false advertising or not?
Technically it's not false advertising but it is intended to create a false impression of technology. Normally one thinks of quartz infrared heat as being radiant heat that heats objects rather than the air, in the case of the EdenPure and its knock-offs the quarz infrared is used to heat a "heat sink" which releases its heat via a fan. A more accurate description would be a fan forced convection heater as it provides hot air rather than radiant heat. However the heat from any source is in fact infrared so that part is accurate.

CU is a pretty accurate source with no axe to grind so read the excerpt from CU above to get an accurate take on the performance claims. All electric heaters are 100% efficient in that all watts consumed result in heat, even the energy consumed by the fan dies a heat death.

I'm A Real cabinetmaker And Furniture maker. I can tell from watching the tv show when they where showing Amish guy's building it. By the way they where working that it was not real. one guy was useing the woodplane wrong and going threw the motion's of being a cabinet maker. or Furniture maker. I have been doing it for over 30 yrs. now & I could tell it was a scam right off the bat. And would not be cost effective for the compony to build each & every one on a mass scale. Even my Teacher that taught me woodworking The Real (New Yankee) Norm Abram would tell you the same.

Thanks for your input. I don't trust or like Amish because of the way they abuse their horses. I would never knowingly purchase anything from them.

Unfortunately the whole energy consumption thing is a bit of bull haha. I have three of these edenpure heaters that my dad unfortunately purchased a few years ago. I have used them, yes. They give out good heating sure, but when plugged into the back house and turned on it cuts the power to that area. In the front house, it does the same. It's good when it does work, but my little 20 dollar heater does the same job without cutting the power.

I have one of those heater sitting at home. Saved my my life when my main furnace stopped working at 2:00 in the morning during the winter storm, when we had negative temperatures.

I have both. I like the Amish heater but I would like to stick the Eden Pure up someone's butt. The thing only lasted one year. Then the co. sent two refurbished ones back to back that didn't work. They sent two element kits because the first one didn't fix the problem. When the second one came in I was so over it I through it up in the attic until today when someone needed a heater. Come to fine out it was the back circuit board that cost another fifty dollars. Don't buy this crappy heater please. It was suppose to last five years my paperwork said.

I purchased an EdenPure Gen4 three years ago. I used it in a RV for a year, loved it! I'm using it and a new Gen2 I purchased this year, and turned off the gas monster central heat. Say what you will, they work. Using two in ranch style house in 2013-2014. Saved a ton on gas and see no difference in electric bill since the gas freak uses electric to push the gas heat through the vents. I may even buy another. The power cords to these heaters never get warm much less get hot like the Walmart specials that burn out the wall plug. Mine two EdenPure heater have run hours and hours with NO PROBLEMS. So I'll laugh at you sketics all the way to the bank.

I hope people realize.... 1 watt of electricity produces 3.4 BTU of heat using any kind of "space heater" . Regardless if it's, quartz, infared, etc. It's all a form of resistance heating.... No different from electric baseboard heating. The only electric heat source that can give you more BTU per watt is geothermal or air source heatpumps. Those can give you up to 12 BTU per watt of electricity. Geothermal and air source heatpumps move heat instead of creating it through thermodynamics.

Bottom line is eden pure or any other expensive electric heater is absolutely no different from a $19.95 space heater. Please don't waste your money. Zone heating works by saving money, but stick with a radiant heat from a baseboard or any other non-fan forced heater. Unless you have the funds for a heatpump.

Yes, I own two of the EdenPure heaters and they are great! I heat my bedroom with one of them in really cold weather...below zero...and it keeps me comfortable all night with no worries. It's easy to maintain, and works well. Without it...I would be very cold, as we have limited heat and my room is at the cold end of our home. I give the EdinPure a big thumbs up. They are definitely worth the cost.
