Portable and a great fan heater
Member Name: aksram
Advantages: portable, heats room instantly
I bought this in 2004 for nearly £20 from Comet store. It is a great fan heater.
It is very pale grey in colour with dark grey front panel. It has vents on top and 2 knobs on the top right side- one for heat or cold setting and the other for the heat level which is marked from 1-6.
It's heating capacity is 3 kw. It heats the room efficiently and very quickly. It takes about 10 minutes for a bedroom to get heated. I use this to heat the room instantly especially after coming from a long holiday and house is very cold.
It can also be used as a fan because of its cooling function- although i don't see it's need much in this country!!
I have another heater from Currys but it doesn't live up to the standard of Delonghi.
It does make relatively loud noise but not much when compared to other heaters of similar kind. I can still sleep with this sound or even watch TV.
The inside coil/fan tends to get red hot when the heater is ON- I am guessing it is normal but seems a bit dangerous. It is well guarded though but I still keep it away from papers and clothing items. I haven't had any problems because of this but still better to be careful.
It is light weight and easily carried to any rooms. Can be taken even in cars to take on small winter breaks.
It's thermostat functions makes it shut off automatically when the room is heated and turns on if it gets colder- thus maintaining an almost even temperature throughout.
It was a very good value for money. I have been using it for the past 7 years and haven't had any problems. I would definitely recommend this.
Summary: Definitely worth buying
