This is a great deal for those who suffer from allergies or are very conscience about energy and keeping our environment as green as possible. What makes it great for allegies it easily puts out enough heat for a winter night for one room heating. If you dont need to heat a whole house this keeps dust from sturring especially in a bed room. This also conserves electricity by heating only the area that needs to be kept warm. I love the heat is automatic. You dont need to wait as with the old ceramic heaters that were oil filled to start to feel the warmth. The outside does feel very warm to the touchso it may not be the best solution if you have a small baby - but it does not burn to the touch. My dog loves to get near the heat and I dont need to worry she will be burnedor dry out her coat because the heat is not the type that dries out the air. A young childprobably around 8 years of age could easily carry this unit so it is also great for thosewho dont want to lift a heavy item and with the handle it is easy to transport. It is sleek in design so it will not appear bulky in your room. Slim enough that you can put it close to a wall and not lose space in your room. Easy to dust and keep clean. Warms a room in little time,cozy non drying heat,economical,great for pets who want the warmth,very portable. Perfect solution for our home. Only negative- such a better heat than a heat pump would love to have in every room because it does not dry the air and we could use it only when we needed the heat in that room.
