At low power (900 Watts) it draws 7.5 amps and at Hi Power (1500 watts) it draws 12.5 amps.

answer 2
This is a little more complicated than a simple number. The average wall outlet is rated at 120v, but due to voltage drop on longer wiring runs, you can expect to get as little as 110v out of an outlet. Since this is a 1500 watt heater, you should expect it to draw between 12.5 and 13.5 amps of current on the high setting. Another thing to note is the voltage will fluctuate throughout the day, I've seen outlets put out as little as 100v at times, this would cause a 15 amp draw, which is the max rating on your standard wall outlet/circuit. You will find 20 amp circuits in your kitchen and in some dedicated outlets for appliances such as window A/C units. As long as you aren't running any other heavy loads on the circuit you have your heater plugged into, you should be fine. If you are consistently tripping your breaker, I would consider installing a dedicated outlet for this heater on a dedicated circuit, rated at 15 or 20 amps to be safe, but under normal circumstances, this should not be necessary. Your electrical code may vary in your area.

Those numbers are for the timer feature. They indicate the number of Hours you want it to run and then auto shut-off. This would be useful if you want to run your heater through the night but not risk forgetting to shut it off in the morning leaving the unit operating all day when you are not there to use the heat.

It's suggested that it is at least 3 feet away from anything, as the unit gets hot to the touch.
answered 8 months ago
By
BNBRATT
answer 2
The instructions say, keep it 3 feet from the wall or furniture, curtains etc. I would use careful discernment. I simply didn't have the room to keep it 3 feet from the wall and the bed and dresser, so I put it at a sensible distance from all of them and when first operating it, checked to see if the nearby surfaces were warmer to the touch that those further away. The answer was, in my situation, not a significant amount. Use caution, test out your own situation over the time period that you will typically have the heater running.

answer 4
Though this heater does radiate in all directions, physics dictates that heat rises. For safety reasons though, I would keep this unit at least 3 feet away from anything, including walls. I have mine about 2 feet away from a wooden coffee table, due to limitations on placement in the room I have it in and haven't had any problems, but again, to be safe, I would keep it 3 or more feet away.

answer 1
That is a hard question to answer. It depends how hot you run it, current energy prices. Know that the oil filled heaters are one of the most efficient as they stay hot due to the oil even when the element is not heating the oil.
answered 8 months ago
By
BNBRATT
answer 2
Getting very specific depends on your local energy cost/KWH.
However, you can get a ballpark idea. Suppose you ran the heater all day in the low setting: that is 900w x 24hr or 21.6 KWH per day. Where I live the current rate is $.077/KWH which means $1.66/day. If you run the heater by a thermostat setting, you SHOULD use less than that, as the heater will not be constantly running.
answered 10 months ago

NativeNewMexiCAN
answer 3
Depends upon how long you run it during the day, what power setting you run it at, and also what your local power company charges per kilowatt-hour of power. For a really good estimate, use this formula:

(Number of Hours Running) x (Power Level in Watts) x 0.001 x (Local Charge per kWh of Power) = Total Cost

So for example say I run the heater for 9 hours at the 1500 watt power level and my local charge per kilo-watt hour (kWh) of power is $0.06, then I would calculate it like this:

(9 hours) x (1500 watts) x 0.001 x ($0.06) = $0.81 --- so it would cost me $0.81 to run this heater for 9 hours at the 1500 watt power level. In other words if you did that every day for a month you would just multiply $0.81 by 30 (for 30 days) or you could just plug in the total amount of hours you run it at for that whole entire month above. That will give you a good ballpark estimate.

No, its a convection heater. It uses the process of natural convection to heat a room (the hot air rises and the cold air falls and passes through the heat dissipators of the heater and rises out hotter). The oil of this heater is INSIDE of it and it does not burn, it just gets hot and flows through the coils.

You can choose if you want to run it on Hi or Lo. Then you choose the temp. setting. Of course if you run it on Hi it will reach the target temp. quicker. So far, I have only used mine on Lo and it seems to be able to heat up my living room pretty quickly.

I believe mine runs at the 900 watt level when it is set at a specific temperature setting. Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure because when I turn it on Hi (when the temperature in the room is actually lower than the temperature I'm setting the heater to) the lights are dimmer than when I set it at a specific temperature which is telling me that its drawing less current than Hi (which is 1500 watts) when it is set at a specific temperature.
