Generate safe, energy-efficient heat where you need it with a Lifesmart 8-Element Infrared Electric Portable Heater. Eight powerful quartz infrared elements require only 1,500W of power (about the same as a hair dryer) to effectively heat your cheaper than larger baseboard heaters. Instead of turning the heat up in your whole house, warm the areas (up to 1,000 sq. ft.) where you spend the most time. A total of 8 infrared elements heat the objects (including you) in the room unlike ceramic-based models. A remote control operates the Digital Thermostat and Dual Time so you can set the unit to turn on before you get home and shut off when you go to bed. Stay warm this winter without burning through your household budget.
