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
Be aware that mobile homes require specially designed
heating equipment. Only electric or vented fuel-fired heaters should be
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.

works well, November 29,
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
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
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.
