Save Up To 50% On Heating???
I received an advertisement in the mail a couple days ago regarding this EdenPURE Heater. Anyone heard of these before? They claim you can save up to 50% on your heating costs by using one. I think they're being a bit loose in their use of words.
What these seem to be is just an additional heater that keeps a room at a given temperature using less power than it would take your home's heater to do the same. Since the room doesn't get as cold, your heater doesn't go on as much, thus you're supposed to save money. Hmmm???
But how much does it cost to run one of these heaters? They say the small one covers 300 square feet. That's enough to take care of this room, where I spend most my time in. That one would use 6.3amps/ 750watts. Anyone a little familiar with such things know if that would use less energy than my forced air heater fan plus the natural gas it burns? I'd just like to know how much power this thing would use compared to some other appliances. How does it compare to a conventional space heater?
Taking a look at a couple space heaters at Rite- Aid, their dinky little conventional space heater seems to use a lot less power. Their large ceramic heater looks like it uses a lot more, electricity- wise. I'll have to go back and compare the heat output between this and the Rite- Aid ones when I get the chance.
At a little over $200 for the small one (with their mail discount) I'm almost tempted to take a chance on it, but it looks like this might be a lot of fluff since I'll basically just be buying an expensive space heater.
