The Duraflame Livingston Infrared Quartz Heater promises to save you money on your energy bill during the cold winter months. By turning down your home’s theromostat and plugging in a room heater, you use much less energy while staying warm and cozy.
The infrared heating system uses the humidity of the room to disperse heat evenly. Infrared heaters are a much safer alternative to traditional combustion heaters. Combustion heaters deplete a room of oxygen, leaving the air dry and the people inside lethargic. Lowering the humidity of a room also causes dehydration, which can then lead to illness.
The Livingston adds an air purification system to its arsenal with a filtration system that will last for the entire operating life of the unit.
- This visually striking heater is made of galvanized steel, poly propylene, solid wood, and wood veneer. It balances well with the furnishings and decorations of any room.
- The Livingston has numerous safety features. The heat grill remains cool to touch. An automatic timer has nine shut off interval settings, and there is also a high limit safety thermal cut off switch.
- The LED display has a dimmer for night time use. The room temperature can be displayed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.
- 3 year manufacturer’s warranty.
Reviews for the Duraflame Livingston have so far been unanimously positive. It has earned a high customer satisfaction rating with no significant complaints so far. The only negative comments that can be found are concerning the accuracy of the digital display. The display temperature is described by one reviewer as incredibly unrealistic. This same user posited that it would not be able to maintain warm temperatures during severe cold spells, as it had already demonstrated some trouble when the outside temperature had just dipped below 30 degrees. However, it managed rather nicely during mild cold snaps.
Reviewers all agreed that this heater is a beautiful fixture with its cherry wood finish. Most agree that it blows very hot air, and is most certainly quiet. Lower utility bills as a result of using this heater are also reported. Commenters like that it is easily portable as it rolls on four wheels and plugs in to any outlet in the home. The air filter on the back of the unit comes off easily. This makes cleaning it with either a vacuum or soap and water a breeze. Regularly cleaning the air filter is important, as it can get clogged with dust over time. If the air filter gets too dirty, the safety shut off switch will engage to keep the unit from overheating.
This heater is highly recommended by buyers who decided to review it online. It’s a nice looking addition to any room, and the infrared heating system evenly disperses warmth throughout the room. It is portable, and easy to clean. One reviewer questioned its ability to keep up during the dead of winter, but another remarked that it was doing just fine warming a room that was 1800 sq. ft. with vaulted ceilings.
