Nice little heater, powerful for the price
This review is from: Holmes Utility Heater. PUH680-U
Pros: Outputs nice hot air even in the coldest rooms; it puts out enough heat that you can use it as both a spot-space-heater or an auxiliary whole-room heater. Decently powerful fan to circulate the hot air around your room, helping bring even bigger rooms up to temp more quickly. Great safety features including automatic shutoff and a tilt sensor that is very reliable - I've knocked this thing over dozens of times and have never burnt a thing!
Cons: There is no temperature reference on the thermostat, so you don't know what temp it is set on if you plan to heat a room up to a certain level. I ended up putting my heater in a 72* room and then cranked up the dial until the unit kicked on, then put a mark with a sharpie to indicate roughly where +72* is - this helped but isn't the best. Cord is too short! I like to move around my heaters to optimize placement for both safety and effectiveness and with such a short cable I can't get it everywhere I want without an extension cord.
Other Thoughts: I will be buying another pair of these heaters, one for between our dog houses, and the other in our ground level living room.
