    I was wondering if you have a review of New Age portable infrared heaters, which also have air purification and humidifiers in them. They are available in the U.S. and through ebay. Thanks!

    • admin says:

      Thanks for your comment Mary. We will look into this. We’re pretty busy at the moment writing up new reviews for outdoor heaters, such as patio heaters and garage heaters, which will be added soon. Thanks again.

  2. Jean says:

    What are your thoughts concerning the Quartz Zone Heater from Mar-Beck?

    • admin says:

      Hi Jean, we review the most popular selling infrared heaters in the USA, and there’s not much relevant information out there on the Quartz Zone. Sorry we couldn’t be of any help.

  3. JDS says:

    Have you reviewed the Sunheat, which is a US-made product, as I have been told.

    I am also curious as to why I should consider an infrared heater vs. a conventional heating model – thoughts?

  4. joe says:

    What are your thoughts on the 2012 Bio Smart line? Thanks!

    • admin says:

      Hi Brandon, there’s not much information out there on these, first impressions, they look quite expensive. We’ll keep an eye on these, and may include a review in the future.

      Thanks for your interest.

  7. dyan says:

    It would be nice if you include running cost with your review of the heaters. To me this would help me choose the right product for us.

  8. Rita says:

    I am wondering what you rate the Lifesmart Infrared Heater M# LSHTC15PB

    (if it is not “1”, it may be “7” as a second choice)

    • admin says:

      Hi Rita, this looks like a great little heater, we plan to have a full review of this one soon. But, rest assured, this looks like another quality product, from Lifesmart.

  9. Mike says:

    Can you please review the Redcore, Duraflame, Lasko Infrared Heater? Thanks!

  10. Peter says:

    whats the difference between a far infrared heater and the regulaur infrared heaters?

  11. Ray Bernard says:

    I have a 3300 sf house and have 4 infrared heaters, I use no other form of heat, all thermostats are off at the electrical panel. I had the people from our electricity supplier come in and rated our house and we were told that using baseboard heat only would cost us about $500.00 monthly during winter’s coldest months, using only our units our monthly cost is about $230.00 to $250.00. So am I pleased? Darn right I am. I have had no problems with any unit and keep the filters clean. God bless the inventor of Infrared heaters.

      Thanks for the feedback

      • john says:

        I have only one complant that is the infrared I heater have burned out after one to two years of constant use.which one last the longest for you ?

        • admin says:

          Hi John, what Infrared heater was it? Was it One or Two years? If it’s on constantly for Two years, most household appliances would most likely pack in after that timeframe. The Dr Heater infrared heater is one of the most reliable, and you can purchase a 1 year warranty from Amazon for less than $10,

    • Sally Moley says:

      Can you tell me what is the name of the heaters you have and any stats such as BTU’s, etc. I am on a very limited budget and think this would help cut my electric bill.

    • Jennifer says:


      I would love to know what infrared heaters you are using. We are trying to eliminate our inefficient baseboard heaters. I think infrared is the way to go, but there are SO many different brands/models to choose from. I’m always curious to hear what’s working for others.


  12. harris says:

    Hi Peter,
    Have you heard of the Portable infrared PTC Heater with PCO Filter Technology Model # YD-904 from Home Hardware. I just bought one and can not find reviews on this unit. I know that it is produced in China and wanted to know which other brands are comparable to this heater.

    • admin says:

      Sorry, we haven’t, there’s many brands out there and we concentrate on the most popular. Can you please let us know how this is performing and how much you paid for it, thanks.

  13. Rodger Gallo says:

    I’m looking into using an infrared heater to heat the recreation room in the basement. I’d like to close the vents and rely solely on the heater. I’d like to know if my purpose will be served by infrared.

    thank you

  14. Mark says:


    Have you ever heard of Smarterheater? They have a few models on eBay, plus their own website and speak of an ‘efficient one bulb design’? (Which seems to run counter to the multi-element design of say a Lifesmart or Edenpure, a known brand.) Is this a brand with any kind of reputation?

    Thanks, Mark.

  15. dawn says:

    was wondering about HEAT STORM Logan Infared didnt see anything.
    Thank you

  16. laurie says:

    how does an infrared heater work best. If I wanted to heat my upstairs bedrooms, is it best to put in a hallway? Will it warm all three bedrooms? Or is it best used in totally open spaces?

  17. Kirk says:

    I was looking at the “infrared” heaters from ATI. They use ceramic stones (PTC) and not quartz bulbs. Even though they are lined with copper (a good heat exchanger), how can they claim to be infrared when it appears that they use no infrared light at all? Also, why don’t you include the Comfort Furnace in your reviews since they appear to be one of the top brands that I’ve read about?

  18. chris martin says:

    Have you done any reviews on the Aerus/Electrolux infared heaters?
    I have had mine for 2 years and I love it! It has a ptc heating element opposed to light bulbs. It also is an air purifier w/ filter. It cost twice as much as some of these other ones. I was wondering if there is a big difference between a lot of these? I realize you get what you pay for.


  19. Bobby says:

    What abut the Edenpure ?? Model A 4136, I have had it for a few years now and it has been good to me, untill this morning. Now it does not put out heat. Just wonder what your review or customers think about it. bobby

  20. Terry says:

  21. Connie Dougherty says:

    My heater has quit and I can’t afford to replace it right now. Winter is hitting. My question is, can these be left on continuously? I have heard so many stories of peoples heaters causing fires I am leary of leaving small space heaters on while I am not home. Are these ok to leave on?

  22. Hanson says:

    I have tested one heater but it is not as reliable and easy to use as the regular gas heater. So will wait for some development.

  23. Edra says:
