Facing the problem of high heating bills, I was rather reluctant to use a space heater because of all the horror stories I had heard about them catching fire. But then, I learned about Eden Pure's Sun Twin portable heater. It uses infrared heat lamps instead of heating elements. During operation, the unit only becomes warm to the touch, meaning there is virtually no risk of anything coming in contact with it being burned or catching fire. It is a very effective heater, and will make an entire medium-sized room nice and toasty. It will allow you to keep your thermostat lower and save money on natural gas. The Sun Twin uses less than 1, 000 watts during operation, while other less efficient space heaters can use well over 1, 000 watts, which will really run up your electric bill. The unit includes a thermostat where you can set the temperature you want in the room, and I found it to be very accurate. Eden Pure makes, by far, the most energy efficient and safest portable heaters on the market. It really helps balance out my costs in these tough economic times.
