Space heaters make me very nervous. I've heard too many stories of bad things happening. So this space heater gets high marks from me. We needed something to heat a playroom and this works for us. Moves the air around the whole room and yet the heater itself never feels overly hot. We had a different unit that kept tripping our circuits but this one doesn't draw too much electricity. Safety This heater feels very safe compared to others I've seen and used.
