Write a review of Optimus
Optimus portable heaters are available in a range of styles, from radiant and fan heaters to wood cabinet and dish heaters. They can be purchased at many common outlet retailers, as well as many online shopping outlets.
Optimus Enterprise Inc. is a California-based supplier of space heaters. According to information from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), some of the company’s heaters are manufactured by the Chinese company Dongguang Hong-Hwa Electric Co. Ltd. The company has held a trademark for the Optimus name since 2007.
Optimus sells the following heaters: radiant, fan-forced, baseboard, micathermic, dish, tower warmers, quartz, oil-filled, ceramic and wood cabinet infrared. A number of garage, patio, utility, umbrella stand and other outdoor heaters also are available.
One of the special features of nearly all Optimus heaters is their ability to operate at different wattages. Most models can operate on a lower and higher wattage depending on the needs of the consumer. Forced fan models generally have the option of using the heater with or without the fan for added flexibility. Most models feature internal thermostats that prevent the unit from overheating.
According to the company, Optimus heaters come with varying safety features depending on the model. Some of the most common are:
- an automatic shut off switches if the unit is tipped over;
- overheat protection and alarm lights to warn of overheating problems; and
- cool-touch housing to eliminate the possibility of burns.
Despite these safety features, the CPSC in 2013 issued a safety recall of two models of the H-5120 infrared quartz radiant heater, those produced in 2011 and 2012.
