A Solid Whole Room Heater

By 

from Eagle River, AK

Comments about Honeywell Low Profile 2-in-1 Electric Baseboard Heater:

When the small heater that I use in our master bathroom was loaned to my daughter, my husband brought home this Honeywell HZ-817 Electric Baseboard Heater as a surprise. It wasn't exactly what I wanted, and it has its pros and cons.

The heater is large. It's wide and it is very long, taking up a lot of real estate in a small bathroom. The thermostat isn't as nice as the one I loaned out, you can't set a specific temperature and expect it to keep than temperature constant. I mean, you can set it at 65, 70, 75, or 80 degrees, but not any number in between. Whatever temp you set, it will turn off when that temperature is exceeded and turn on if the room gets cooler than that preset temp.

There is a light that illuminates to let you know it is on, and it is more of a whole room heater in that it does not blow the air outward (like my old one), it just radiates the heat. Even the "Quick Heat" that my husband was impressed with, does not provide the heat I want from a portable heater. I like to have the heat blown directly on me because I am always cold!

It does a good job of warming up a small room, but I am not so sure it would keep a larger room comfortable. I do like the safety features that are built in, so if this heater were to fall over (and it seems extremely sturdy and sure footed to me), it will automatically shut itself off.



The surface of the heater does get warm, so it should be kept away from walls, curtains, bedding, etc.

Overall this is a solid space heater. It is just too large for my personal tastes, and it does not expel the air with enough force to satisfy me. On the plus side, it is VERY quiet, which makes it great for a baby's room.

Ease of Use
Easy to use, dials are easy to read. There is a light that illuminates to let you know it is on.

Durability
Not sure because this isn't used much in our home due to the large size.

Honeywell HZ-817 Electric Baseboard Heater

By 

from Chehalis, WA

Comments about Honeywell Low Profile 2-in-1 Electric Baseboard Heater:

Our family just recently purchased a Honeywell HZ-817 Electric Baseboard Heater for the garage and my husband hasn't been happier. Now, when it is below thirty degrees outside, he can keep working on his projects in the comfort and warmth of his new Honeywell HZ-817 Electric Baseboard Heater. It was a fairly expensive purchase and I had been hoping that it would help keep down the heating costs, but because we had used a wood stove before, that was not going to happen. He does enjoy not having to go out and chop a bunch of wood to start the fire anymore and that it is definately a lot cleaner that the wood stove. I am glad that he likes it and I like that more things are getting completed that needed to be done around the house. I guess all the extra energy that had previously gone into chopping the firewood, can now go into the "honey do" list - thanks to the Honeywell HZ-817 Electirc Baseboard Heater.
