The LifeSmart Space Heater is an infrared heater that supplements your house's heating while cutting your utility costs.
This heater, much like the infrared heating inside a toaster, is meant to heat objects in the room and provides a more natural warmth that won't dry out the air. Infrared heaters are designed to work in addition to your home's heating system. They are not meant to heat through walls or floors and work best in single insulated rooms or garages.
Keep your room cozy without turning up the heat and save yourself some money this winter with the LifeSmart Space Heater.
Upon 1st setting up the heater, my wife's 1st comments were I love the way it looks. In addition to the elegant look it works beyond expectations. Infrared heaters are not supposed to work well in uninsulated basements but the great price warranted an attempt. We have it setup in an open 945sq ft space and we have been experiencing very even heating across the entire space. It takes some time to heat the entire space but we have seen it raise the ambient room temperature 12 degrees within a couple of hours. Great product, we're ordering more!
Bought this unit to take the cool edge off without having to heat the whole house. My husband and I are empty nesters and predominently use the kitchen / family room and then we go up to the bedroom. So it seems silly to heat the whle house. I used standard shipping and it ccame within 24 hours! (was shocked) Took it right out of the box, plugged it in and within 15 minutes the whole kitchen, family room was warm and toasty! The best part about this unit is it is so quiet! It also is small and sleek and look like a nice piece of furniture. I would highly recommend this unit for the cost and the efficiency it provides. We may order another one for our bedroom! We thought the price was extremely reasonable and thought that it delivered everything it said it would!
I like this heater. It is not noisy, sits very unobtrusively in the corner and heats well. I don't know how it manages to heat the entire area with the small amount of air that seems to flow out of it but it does. I bought it to supplement our wood heat and it does a great job of keeping the room temp very comfortable.
This heater is used in extra large rooms and works great. I love the way it fits in a small area taking up very little space while looking neat and in place.
I purchased directly from VMInnovations, and the unit arrived incredibly fast! It's very well packaged and arrived in perfect appearance and working order. I have a couple of the shorter and wider LifeSmart units purchased in previous years, but this new unit dimensionally has a better footprint for placement, IMHO. The cabinet is very attractive and blends in beautifully with my dark furniture.
The display is informative, and I like that there is a button that when pressed, reads the current room temperature. The provided remotes are nicer and bigger than the small flat ones I'm accustomed to, and their range is respectable. The power cord is round and quite thick, compared to previous units flat cable that sometimes got warm to the touch. So far this cord has stayed cool to the touch, as well as the plug.
The ECO setting is my favorite, as I'm confident leaving it on that safe setting while at work all day. The unit powers up and cycles exactly as needed and turns off when target temp is reached. I look forward to putting the LS-1002HH to the test this winter, on the East Coast. Now that I have three infrared units dispersed throughout the house on separate circuits, I will attempt to go a full season without using the more costly oil heater.
My cat also appreciates that she can sit in front of it and get nice and toasty due to the heat emitting lower to the floor, as compared to other models.
I love my LifeSmart LS1003HH Tower Infrared Heater. Supplies quality comfortable heat in my very drafty apartment. The heater is very user friendly and features are attractive and goes well with my decor. Have just placed another order for (2) more as a friend of mine saw mine and wanted one. There is nothing I can say negative after having my heater for over a month now. I would highly recommend this heater to anyone.
The unit heats ok but the fan do not blow hard enough.And it is hard to believe this will heat a 1800 souare feet room . But over all its worth the price.
LOVE this infrared tower heater! Turned off my electric baseboard heat, and use my infrared heater exclusively to heat my upstairs in my split level home. Heats my home faster than the electric heat, stays warmer much longer, and does not dry the air. Also love the two remote controls it comes with. Would recomend this heater to everyone! Will really save me money this winter!! Best purchase of the year!!!
I was looking for a heat source because propane is so expensive. I have heard the infra red quartz is the most economical and in looking around, found this to be the best priced heater for me while delivering the heat source I was looking for. I have had this unit for about 3 weeks and have not had the propane heat on yet. This is Oct. 30, 2014. I have a small house, a little over 700 sq. ft, it keeps it nice and warm. Will be able to tell more when the colder weather sets in, I know I will not be running the propane like I have in the past. Very pleased with the heater, would reccommend it to anyone . And I forgot to metion, vey quiet fan.
i purchased this heater already knowing that it would be great. i previously purchased a smaller similar unit last year it it is doing a stellar job of heating the space intended. this one was purcased to do a lot more volume and has not disappointed. having previously gone away on vacation during a very cold winter spell, upon returning i noticed an issue with my main furnace. as it was not functioning properly the house temperature dipped quite a bit making me have to scurry to get a technician out to do an emergency repair. needless to say that was quite expensive. this unit, being able to handle the larger volume of space than the smaller one i have, is my new safety net. other than heating the space i would like to make warmer on chilly days, it will now serve as a compensating unit. i will set it to a similar temp as my main furnace and if a similar issue arises, i know it will do its job (thus allowing me to enjoy my future vacations). this is a great buy and i would recomend to anyone!
First of all, keep in mind that this is a very powerful heater which requires a lot of energy since it has 2 long heating elements. It kept popping my circuit breaker in the first location where I placed it so I had to move it to a different outlet. Haven’t had any issues since. The construction is not as sturdy as Dr Heater’s wooden case, but it actually seems to be better as lighter case makes it easier to move around as well as more sensitive to the temperature changes. DrHeater, that I also have, gets the temperature in the room to what it is set to and then goes to power save. However, due to the heat trapped in the case it takes it up to a few hours for it to realize the temperature drop and turn on again. Such fluctuations can make some ppl uncomfortable. Few other reviewers noted that it does not heat the advertised 1800 sq ft space, I can’t comment on this since I was looking for a heater with a small footprint that can warm up a large room quickly. Two remotes are a definite plus and convenience. Most other heaters only come with one. I purchased 2 of them from VMInovations and one of the heaters got banged up by fedex during transportation. I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and promptness of the VMI customer support – all was handled within a day.
I am happy with a purchase and would certainly recommend this heater.
The LifeSmart Tower Heater is a superiour product. It heats up quickly and is relatively quiet! It delivers comfortable non drying heat, unlike many other heaters. It has a 12 hour timer. It is relatively compact and does not offset decor. It is extremely safe for your pets who may enjoy sitting in front of it or occasionally brushing up against it without any harm! It can be set in fahrenheit or centigrade, which is convenient if you are using it or sending it outside of the USA. Overall, I really enjoy this product and would purchase it again, as well as recommend it to anyone.
Searched on line for several days to find a supplemental heat source that exceeded the normal 1000-1500 sq. ft. that most infrared heaters offered. The LifeSmart Sq Ft Infrared Quartz Tower Heater LS-1003HH13 met my needs. Priced reasonable and shipping was timely just as promised. Heater was placed in service quickly upon arrival and has performed flawlessly. I use heatpump to bring home up to desired temperature and cut the thermostat back and let the Life Smart continue to hold that temperature without the heat pump coming back on line. Only compliant is the loud beep when turning the heater off. Thanks
Because we live in a two-story house, we were tired of wasting electricity from heating the entire house when everyone would be in the family room. We purchased this unit two months ago for the family room, and we have been very pleased with the performance of the infrared heater thus far. Although it does take a little time for the hot air to circulate the entire room, the unit works as advertised. We can actually see the temperature of the room rise when the unit is in use. The remote control capability makes the unit convenient and easy to use. We also like the fact that although the unit does get hot, the surface is warm to the touch when in operation, which makes it safe to use around children and pets. The savings on the electric bill is great, and money in the pocket is always nice.
We highly recommend it!
After doing quite a bit of research I decided to purchase this space heater for a 15X18 room. I am very impressed with the built-in safety features 1)auto shutoff when tipped over 2)auto cool down mode before it shuts off 3) cool to the touch on the top, sides and rear. This space heater is quite efficient and heats up the space much quicker than our older oil based spaced heater. The two included remotes are a plus! I highly recommend this space heater!
I like it, it's warm and safe I can set it at a temp leave the room come back and the room is very warm also because it's frame never get's hot on the out side has temp control I really like that and I dont have to turn my house heat up high. I put this heater anywhere there's a draft in my house.
