Review on the Broan Big Heat Portable Heater

This portable electric heater is the perfect solution for instant heat, with a full 1500 watts and a reliable, ceramic heating element to ensure fast warm-up. Rugged steel construction, automatic shut-off if tipped over on its front or back, and overheat protection mean that Broan Big Heat is not only durable, but safe. No matter where you put it to work, itís just what you need, right when you need it.

Pos: Really small & compact, awesome amount of heat, thermostatically controlled, lite weight, rugged design.

Neg: Uses about 12 amps of power

Price: $55.43

Summary: This unit is my savior! Hadnít really payed attention to our propane level and last week found ourselves without propane on a clear crisp evening with temps in the 30′s. Couldnít get close enough to the propane fill station, did not have the right fitting to add a 20 lb bottle to the system, so we pulled out this unit and hoped for the best. I figured it was going to be very cold in our 40′ RV by morning, but to my surprise we maintained 69 degrees in the main area and slightly cooler in the bedroom which is some what separated. It is quiet, super well built and pumps out really warm air. The way this unit is constructed I felt very comfortable running it on high all night without fear of something going horribly wrong. It has a thermal cut out for overheating as well as a tip-over shutoff. For such a small unit this thing really does the job!
