Getting Warmer

Several years ago I purchased one of those ceramic heaters that were all the rage. My elderly mother lived alone on Cape Cod and needed some extra warmth as she watched TV at night. The heater didn’t give off much ambient warmth and after a few weeks she just gave up and jacked the thermostat up to 80 degrees. How I wish the DeLonghi flat panel radiator had been available then. Thin, sleek and portable (it can even be wall mounted), this is truly the little heater that could. The DeLonghi heater has its own thermostat that can be set for automatic adjustment, has an easy carry handle, and would be a welcome addition to any family room this winter, especially ones without fireplaces! Although not recommended for a bathroom, the DeLonghi flat panel radiator can take that too cool room and make it cozy, eliminating the need to twist the thermostat way up. At my little home on the Cape, we have an unheated but enclosed porch that we just about live in all summer. With the addition of this quiet and unobtrusive heater, we now enjoy the porch all the way into autumn. Can you think of a place in your home for a little extra heat?

    Everybody has a cold spot ... some of us more than one. Nice to have a heater you can use for all them. Where would you bring your DeLonghi heater?

    I actually bought this space heater at Jules suggestion a few months ago and it keeps my office very cozy. It is totally silent and easy to move around. I highly recommend it.

    I bought one of these for our toddlers room. Never in a million years did I think I could safely keep a space heater in our kids room. But, with this one wall mounted, and not too hot to touch, I really feel it's safe.

    Great Grommet!

    This is a great solution for those hard-to-heat rooms, places; and I especially like the safety element.

    What size room does it heat?

    We have an elderly friend who is always cold and keeps his house so hot, its stifling. I especially like that its lightweight and he would be able to transport it easily. I think I will share this Grommet with him.

    @mcc We use it in a freezing cold, poorly insulated room with three windows. it is 12' by 14'. The room is warm within a few minutes. You can keep the heater dialed to whatever heat level you prefer and it regulates itself. My guess is it could cover a room about 50% bigger, with ordinary ceiling heights. After that, the lack of a fan would probably make it inadequate.

    This heater has saved me a fortune on heating oil. We have three rooms -- two baths and a guest room / office -- that are quite cold as they are from the oil burner and poorly insulated. We used to have to keep the thermostat at 70 for these rooms to be bearable. Now I keep the entire house at 65. When someone is using one of these rooms, they turn the heater on for 5 minutes and they are set. Silent. And lighter than my laptop.

    We have this heater -- makes all the difference in our home in Minneapolis, where it's currently zero degrees and headed for much colder temps next week. We mount it on the wall in the (uninsulated) basement playroom, to keep it out of the kids' reach. I use the feet when it's in my office. It's very easy to move around, and it works well. No crackling noises or funky burning smell like I remember from older space heaters.

    We'd tried a lot of space heaters for a chilly 12x14 basement bedroom and never got the results we needed. This heater truly works, and I love the safety features.

    I have one of the radiator heaters from delonghi and it works good. But i was wondering what material this is made out of? Like metal housing instead of plastic. Does any one know? Thanks Deborah in Tennessee.

    @Deborah, It’s mostly metal. The black grill (which is the bulk of the front) is metal. The entire back is metal. The only part that might be plastic are the legs but they are the same color as the metal and, frankly, appear to be metal.
