Consumer Reviews of EdenPure space heaters
"My review of the EdenPure Portable Space Heater."
I bought three of the EdenPure brand portable space heaters when they first came out in 2009. At first they seemed to be the answer to everyone's heating problems. They advertized that you could cut your heating costs by at least 35% in the first season alone. The price tag was a bit hefty, MSRP was around $350, but I decided to buy 3 of the units, and to give two away as gifts for my grandparents because as I understood the heaters would pay for themselves in the first year. When I first took mine out of the box, and pulled it up I was very happy with it. It heated up rather quickly, and it warmed everything in the house in a different way than regular electric heat did. I noticed the furniture, and the floor warmed up which was very nice during the extra cold winter days. My grandparents found it easy to use as well. Unfortunately within 6 months of one of my grandparents using theirs, the heater stopped working. I contacted the company to have it repaired, and was told that I did not have a warranty because I had thrown away the box that the heater had arrived in. They told me the box was my warranty. We worked out an "agreement" and I paid the company another $150 to repair the unit. It was fixed, and has worked fine since then. This is my third season of using my unit. When I plugged it up a few days ago, the heater wasn't working right. The heating element is no longer getting hot, and it is only blowing out cold air. I can only imagine the hassle I will go through trying to have this one fixed. I would be skeptical about buying another one, simply because spending $500 on a heater is not really helping me to lower the total cost of heating my home. I also noticed that my electric bill was at least the same price with using this heater versus using the electric heat in my home which was far from the drastic way the heater was advertized.
