We have had this heater for a few years, and really like it. It heats an area as large as 1100 sq. ft.. With an attractive durable finish and slimline styling this heater becomes part of your room decor. It has an automatic direct ignition and electronic controls, that you slide to set the temperature.The dual fans are very quiet and circulate clean heated air. There is a built in humidifier for room comfort. Two top mounted filters protect fans from dust and dirt. They can be cleaned very easily, but you need to do often. The warm air exits from the base of the unit, and it has an automatic shut down in case of an emergency. If the power goes off the heater will restart on its own, when the power comes back on. You can use this heater in room additions, basements, offices, vacation homes, and even mobile homes. The heater meets Energy Savers high standards.
We have found this heater to warm our North Eastern home on those very cold days and nights. Very quiet and clean, the only noise is the clicking of the burner when it comes on. We have saved money with the Rinnai Gas Heater and believe it to have paid for itself in just three years. I highly recommmend this heater.
Update On May 11, 2010: Last week it snowed here, and Mothers Day it snowed alittle. We aren't able to turn off our heat yet.. Going to be in the mid20"s tonight, so it probably will run again to keep the house warm. These heat bills will never end if you live in the Northeast.
