Lifesmart 1500 Sqft 1500 Watt Infrared Quartz HeaterThe LifeSmart 1500 Watt Infrared Quartz Heater uses infrared technology to evenly distribute heat throughout a 1500 sq. ft. room without reducing the humidity of oxygen levels.

These heaters are effective at maintaining comfortable room temperatures while saving the homeowner money on their energy bills.  Not only are infrared heaters energy efficient, they are also safe.  The heaters do not get hot to the touch, so they are safe for pets and small children.

  • The built in air filter removes dust, dirt, and other particles from the air.  It also removes mold, mildew, bacteria, and viruses.  The filter is easily removable and can be cleaned with either a vacuum cleaner or soap and warm water.
  • Safety features include non-combustible heating elements.  The heater does not get hot on the outside, so it is safe to use around children.
  • No installation is required, only a regular household outlet for the 120V power cord.

The Reviews

The reviews for the LifeSmart 1500 Watt Infrared Quartz Heater are lukewarm.  The negative comments are succinct, indicating that the unit just does not produce enough heat to warm a room.  A couple of commenters indicated receiving an e1 error code on the LCD display shortly after purchasing the unit, causing it to shut off.  While advertising suggests that you can plug the unit into any wall socket, experience has shown that you need to use a circuit that does not have anything else plugged.  Otherwise, the circuit will overload and the unit will shut off or blow the fuse.

The positive reviews state that the heater works well when used as intended.  It is apparently effective at maintaining comfortable room temperatures, but cannot warm up a cold room on its own.  If the room is first brought to a comfortable temperature, the heater can then maintain that temperature without too much help from the home heating system.  A few reviewers reported a significant decrease in the amount of heating fuel they used which more than offset any spike in the electric bill from the heater.  It also received praise for being quiet and easily portable.

This heater is recommended.  Negative reviews point out that the heater will not heat a room by itself, but it is not designed to work that way.  The positive comments suggest that, when used as intended, this heater does the job.  It maintains comfortable room temperatures, taking the pressure off of the home’s main heating system and dropping overall utility costs.  While users will see rise in their electric bills, that is more than offset by the savings in heating oil costs.  Thus, it causes a net savings on utility costs.  It is quiet and safe.  When shooing for space heaters, this unit can safely be considered.
