Pros & Cons
Lifesmart Compact Power Plus 800 Square Foot Infrared Heater w/Remote has an injection molded black plastic cabinet with thermostat control system to keep the electricity bill under check. Suitable for 800 sq ft room, the heater warms up the room faster and more evenly when compared to other heaters without producing dry air or changing room humidity. This heater features three wrapped infrared heating elements, control panel with digital readout, 12-hour programmable count up or down timer, 3 temperature setting (High/Low/Eco Modes), lifetime washable filter, master on/off power switch and quiet scroll fan. The heater requires standard 3-prong, 120V outlet to operate and includes a handy raised button remote control with LED indicator. The heater also features a non-overheating body and side life handles which makes it safe for children and pets. Compact in size and light in weight, makes it very easy to move around for change of location.
However, if the unit is left directly on a cold floor it does not seem to turn off. Some units do not seem to turn off automatically even after the desired temperature is reached. Some users also mentioned the fan being loud or noisy, continues to run for some time even after the heater is turned off. Some find the units to be of poor quality due to malfunctioning, missing parts etc.
Overall, the Lifesmart Compact Power Plus 800 Square Foot Infrared Heater w/Remote is recommended by users and is ideal for heating up smaller areas or rooms. It is efficient, quiet, and fast; and really throws some heat within affordable price range.
