OUR REVIEW

I bought this Tuscan walnut model few months back. I should say I was really charmed by its perfect finish and looks initially. My home is 1800 sq.ft inclusive of the sit out. My main heating requirement is for the living room and the open kitchen that it opens to. For the bedrooms I use smaller heaters and do not need supplement heating equipment. So I was effectively looking for a heater that would heat up 1050 sq.ft area. But I was not sure which heater to pick because without dividing walls or wooden fixtures to divide the living space and kitchen, it is a pretty large area that needs to be heated.

But Comfort furnace has been doing it quite well as per my observation. We have a clerestory window in kitchen. Once I happened to reach it and was quite surprised to find it also warmed up. The greatest plus is the heat is definitely evenly distributed at all times.

Philips UV air filter is a feature that am quite happy about. The heat exchanger destroys pathogens and microbes and gives pure air. The filter removes heavy filth from air like dust and clumps. I was impressed with this feature because my pet is greatly benefitted by it. He was showing signs of tuberculosis and with this heater in place; he has started showing signs of improvement in his health. My vet feels that the UV filter could have helped him because otherwise there has not been exposed to other change in the environment.

This heater is not very effective in the outdoors according to manuals and that is a drawback if you want to use this heater outdoors. Other than that, when I happened to move the heater close to a window, the HVAC sync did not quite work effectively. So I believe it has to be placed in the same place where the room thermostat is, so that the temperature sync can naturally happen.

I have connected my heater in a conventional 3 pin outlet and so far I had no tripping problems with my heater. Using a 15 amps outlet does not create any problem for my household.

I have placed the heater on a slightly elevated position and adjusted the louvers so that i can direct the heat to faraway places also. But this did not lead to any uneven heating right below the heater where my pet sleeps.
