General Suggestions for All Space Heaters

Consumer Product Safety Commission offers the following general suggestions for selection, safe use, and maintenance of gas, wood, kerosene and electric space heaters:

  • Select a space heater with a guard around the flame area or the heating element. This will help keep children, pets and clothing away from the heat source.
  • When selecting a heater, look for one that has been tested and certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory. These heaters have been determined to meet specific safety standards, and manufacturers are required to provide important use and care information to the consumer.
  • Buy a heater that is the correct size for the area you want to heat. The wrong size heater could produce more pollutants and may not be an efficient use of energy.
  • Read and follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions. A good practice is to read aloud the instructions and warning labels to all members of the household to be certain that everyone understands how to operate the heater safely. Keep the owner’s manual in a convenient place to refer to when needed.
  • Keep children and pets away from space heaters. Some heaters have very hot surfaces. Children should not be permitted to either adjust the controls or move the heater.
  • Keep doors open to the rest of the house if you are using an unvented fuel-burning space heater. This helps to prevent pollutant build-up and promotes proper combustion. Even vented heaters require ventilation for proper combustion.
  • Never leave a space heater on when you go to sleep or leave the area. For fuel-fired heaters, dangerous levels of carbon monoxide could accumulate or uncontrolled burning could cause a fire.
  • Never use or store flammable liquids (such as gasoline) around a space heater. The flammable vapors can flow from one part of the room to another and be ignited by the open flame or by an electrical spark.
  • Be aware that mobile homes require specially designed heating equipment. Only electric or vented fuel-fired heaters should be used.
  • Place heaters at least three feet away from objects such as bedding, furniture and drapes. Never use heaters to dry clothes or shoes. Do not place heaters where towels or other objects could fall on the heater and start a fire.

Honeywell Consumer Products
An electric heater is an electrical appliance that converts electrical energy into heat. The heating element inside every electric heater is simply an electrical resistor, and works on the principle of Joule heating: an electric current flowing through a resistor converts electrical energy into heat energy.

works well, November 29, 2005
I bought HZ-710 (from Walmart), which according to Honeywell's website is the same as the HZ-708 functionally except that HZ-710 has a different front panel color. It has an LCD panel, an on-off button, and three knobs for setting power level, timer, and desired temperature. There are three power settings: 1500W, 900W, and 600W, same as most other oil-filled heaters in this price range. The timer is for telling it how many hours from now to shut it off. The timer range is 1 to 18 hours and you can only set whole hours. If you want 7.5 hours, you have to settle on either 7 or 8 or wait 30 minutes and set it to 7. Each time the heater is turned on, the default is no time limit. The timer cannot be used to tell when to turn the heater on.

The temperature control sets the desired temperature (ranges from 45 to 85 Fahrenheit). When the ambient temperature is 2 degrees (F) below the desired one, it will heat up the oil at the chosen power level until the ambient temperature is 2 degrees (F) above the desired one. Then it stops heating the oil (but not shut off); after that the ambient temperature may climb up additional 1-2 degrees because of the existent heat in the oil. Depending on your room size and the temperature outside your room, the cycle time of heat-stop-heat may vary. You can choose either Fahrenheit or Celsius right after the heater is turned on.

The heater doesn't remember your settings after it is shut off. Every time the heater is turned on, it uses the default setting: high power (1500W), Fahrenheit display, and no set time nor temperature. If these are not your desired setting, use the knobs to change them. I often change to mid power (900W) and 72 degrees by pressing the power knob once and the temperature knob twice (the value starts at 70 when the temperature is first set). The LCD panel displays your setting when one of the knobs is used; otherwise the ambient temperature is displayed.

To me, the timer is not much useful, but I do use it just in case I forget to shut it off when I leave home. One advantage of this model over some others is the LCD panel for numerical display of temperature, especially when setting it. On some cheaper models, you need to experiment a little to find where the temperature dial should point to because there is no explicit temperature marking. (I guess manufacturers don't want to mark temperatures so that they can entice you to buy expensive ones.) Another advantage of this model is the internal tip-over switch to shut itself off when it is tipped over. I tried this feature and it works. The LCD panel also has an indicator light that is on whenever the heater is not heating the oil and waiting for the ambient temperature to cool down. (It might be more natural if this indicator is on when the heater IS heating the oil.) The power button also is illuminated when the heater is on.

Honeywell puts 5 years warranty behind this product, compared to only 1 year for DeLonghi heaters. I don't find the tip-over switch feature on any DeLonghi products.

The advantages of oil filled heaters over other types can be easily found on the Internet. This Honeywell heater is very well built, very quiet, and looks nice on the floor. We love it.

PS. I just bought a DeLonghi heater from Lowes for another room and felt I had been spoiled by this Honeywell. I will return the DeLonghi and get another Honeywell.
