1 out of 5 eggsOkay while it lasted.

Pros: The heater has 2 setting with and without the halogen light. It was easy to install since the bracket was separate from the heater.

Cons: The power cord is too short. If the outlet is not close, you will need a heavy duty 14 ga. appliance cord to reach further. The pull string feels like it could break easily. The bracket is very flimsy and the screw holes are in odd locations that are not even 16" on center as the majority of houses are built with studs 16" on center. Had to drill mounting holes in order to mount the bracket. Poor quality construction.

Other Thoughts: I used the heater for about a week and a half when the heater started to make a snapping sound. Then, the tube shattered broken glass along with a loud cracking sound. The heating element inside the tube was exposed with the coiled wire hanging out. It also gets hot above the mounting location, so it is not safe to leave it on for an extended period of time. I purchased this heater to replace an existing infrared heater that has been working for years and still is. This heater did not even make it through the month without breaking and shattering glass everywhere. Had to return for a refund.

1 out of 5 eggsGoing back...

Pros: Comes down as fast as it went up.

Cons: After using these heaters another time, I have determined that they are completely useless for my situation, and have initiated an RMA.

While reading the manual, looking for anything to explain the poor performance, I found "Do not use outside" in the list of warnings. So, what is normally referred to as a "patio heater" can't be used outside. OK, maybe that is the problem. So I took them down, and tested one of them on the floor of my garage, angled up at 45 degrees. I then measured the temperature delta of the front side of a thin piece of brown cardboard placed directly in line with the heater at various distances. Here are the results:

(all temperatures in Fahrenheit)
3 feet: 74 -> 95 ( delta: 21 )
4 feet: 74 -> 85 ( delta: 11 )
5 feet: 74 -> 81 ( delta: 7 )
6 feet: 74 -> 78 ( delta: 4 )
7 feet: 74 -> 77 ( delta: 3 )
8 feet: 74 -> 76 ( delta: 2 )
>8 feet: no different measured

Remember that the manual warns you that all items must be at least 3 feet away from the front, back, and sides of the unit.

Given my mounting height of 8 feet, my seating height of about 3 feet, and a mounting angle of about 45 degrees, I am about 7 feet from the heater. This equates to a temperature increase of 3 degrees. And this only applies to the 1 person directly in the path, not even the person sitting next to them. This is certainly not worth the cost of the heater, plus $0.20 per hour to operate it, in my opinion.

Also of note is that the description for this heater on another popular online web site states that this can be wall-mounted. While the bracket will allow this, the manual specifically says not to do it.

Other Thoughts: The measured power consumption of this heater is 1350W. I tested only with the included halogen light turned off. The manual states that this should not be replaced with a bulb larger than 50W, so I assume it will add another 50W to the total load.

I measured the temperature of the unit in many locations after about 30 minutes of use:

Front of unit in black frame area:
top - 222
left - 83
right - 86
bottom - 120

Front of unit in silver frame area:
top - 425
left - 141
right - 165
bottom - 167

Sides:
top - 141
left - 82
right - 81
bottom - (couldn't measure here since it was sitting on the garage floor)

Back of unit was 85, and just for laughs, the elements were 900.
