Posted on: Jul 18 2011 at 08:22 - comments
Posted In: ,

Original offer details & such: $279.00 + $19.99 S&H. Additional S&H applies to PO Box addresses and orders outside continental US.

Ever work in an office where no matter what there was a draft? Pick an interior room: draft. Pick the room by the heat vent - draft. It doesn't matter. It's why I'll pick a location with a view because it doesn't matter if the draft comes through the windows, I was going to get hit with a draft anyway. Might as well enjoy the scenery.

At the old agency, our HR director made me a deal where she gave me a heater / fan to replace the full-size fan I used to bring in. It nearly saved me during the winters. Had I known she'd a been so easy to deal with, I'd a held out for an iHeater. Would that have been a wise decision? Let's find out...

What Is iHeater?

iHeater's are one of the most celebrated names in portable infrared heaters. You see their commercials run frequently in the evenings during the cold seasons (so...September-May :-)). The commercials are effective because, if you're like me, your toes start get cold by simply watching the commercials. You'll notice every draft for three days.

And, yeah, you'll think about getting one for your office, one for the foot of your bed, one by the TV...

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to infrarediheater.com, iHeater claims the following features and benefits:

  • Range up to 1,000 sq. ft.
  • "Ultra efficient" infrared technology
  • "Whisper quiet"
  • Heats floor to ceiling evenly
  • Costs 50% (compared to competition)

Does iHeater Work? Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process: The order process appears to be smooth and efficient. We checked the typical complaint sites & well trafficked blogs and saw no issues with the order process. The official product site we work with offers a reduced price, 1 S&H (continental US) and that's it so we don't foresee any issues coming up.

Product Performance: Welcome to the land of mixed-bag reviews. The complaints we found we based on people believing the product doesn't work. Some people claimed their heating bill went up . Other's complained the product didn't last very long (note: there is a warranty).

We also found a couple forums where people talked about the product in use. These third party and niche forums seemed to be kinder about the iHeater. Here are a couple of the forums we found:

When using the iHeater, also remember to factor in the insulation of the space where you're going to use the product. If the area is poorly insulated, the product will probably cost more than if the area is well insulated. Warm toes for thought :-)

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
