Im in the market for a new heater for this winter.
The space im heating is about 700 square feet, not the greatest insulation(will be taking care of that issue this spring)
im curently using kerosine heaters BUT, at $4.00+ / galon, i'll be going through about $400-$500 / month.
Im looking for something electric, as im tired of having to fill tanks/ go get fuel / smell/ no temp control/ etc.
I've seen a few heaters at my local TSC/Lowes/online, Infrared heaters, that are rated at 1500watts/5000ish btu's, suposed to heat up to 1000 square foot room, but i don't trust online reviews and i don't know anyone who has one, so if anyone here has one or knows someone who uses one, what do you think of them? will they actually heat a 700Sqft room?
Im not real concerned with the hit to my electric bill sine im already shelling out $400-$500 on kerosine, and if it works out to be the same money wise, it would be worth it just for less hassel. But considering these things run anywhere from $200-$400, im hoping some of you might have had some experience with these things.
here are a few examples:
EdenPURE GEN3 Model 1000 Quartz Infrared Heater $300.00
LIFESMART Amish Inspired Power Plus 1200 Square Foot 6 Element $200.00
Comfort Zone Cherry Infrared Quartz Heater $300.00
Comfort Furnace Quartz Infrared Heater Tuscan Walnut $400.00
Any experience you all have would be greatly apreciated.
