We bought this for my daughter's room. I love that you can set the thermostat on it. It also comes with a remote. There is a light on the front that lets you know when it's being used. There is an 8 hour timer so you can set the heater to automatically turn off. There is an anti-freeze setting that is used to keep the heater from freezing if the room gets below 44 F. This heater is small enough to be able to sit on a counter top. It can also be used in the summer on the fan function that does not put out heat. There are high and low settings for the heater. The heater will also turn itself off it it is going to over heat. There is an LCD screen on the front that shows your settings. You can also set it to oscillate. It's small and light enough to move from room to room if it's a chilly day. It only weighs a few pounds. This has been a fantastic purchase. I'm sure we'll be buying another one.
