Maintains Heat Well or Not
It doesn't reset and start following a power outage.
Worth the Expense?Yes
Heats well when supervised.
Bad feature; it doesn't reset and start after a power outage.
This heater is worth the expense and it does a good job when it is attended; as far as I know it operates more efficiently than a standard baseboard electic heater. However, following a recent two hour power outage it did not reset and start. Over the next few days the room cooled and my water pipes froze. This unit should be used in supervised/frequented locations only. This limitation should be clearly stated in the unit's brochure. I would recommend it only with qualifications
Would you recommend this to a friend?Yes
