Write a review of Optimus space heaters
Optimus heaters can be purchased at many common outlet stores such as Wal-mart, Kmart and Target. They are also available in many online shopping outlets. Models include the H-3001 mini compact utility heater and the H-5210 Infrared Radiant Quartz Heater that is available in 400 or 800-watt models. Optimus also makes forced fan and tower heaters. Some of the tower models include the tower heater with digital control and the 1500-watt tower quartz heater. Ceramic heaters like the H-7001 are also available with this brand.
Optimus heaters come with varying safety features depending on the model. Some of the most common are
- 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.
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.
Customer reviews online indicate that while most models do well heating a small area, they do not give off as much heat as other portable heaters. Another common complaint is that these heaters are extremely loud.
