bountyhunter Posted February 5, 2008 Share Posted February 5, 2008 (edited) You may have seen the full page ads in your newspapers about the "Paul Harvey Recommended" new magic heaters made by Edenpure.... they claim they are so much more efficient, they don't dry the air, they magically warm all parts of the room, save you 50% in energy costs, yadda, yadda, yadda...... and they charge about $500 for these suckers. They are 750W/1500W space heaters which use a quartz infra-red emitting bulb that shines on copper tubes with a little fan blowing air through the tubes. Well, I have a couple of engineering degrees and knew immediately it was bogus: watts are the same no matter how you generate them and 750W (even 1500W) will not quickly or even adequately heat the average room. And the fact that they shine the light on a tube and then blow air through it doesn't change the actual heat being put into the space. But, I was surprised when I did a web search...... surprised at how awful this company is. I expected to find some whining about how it didn't really heat very well and how overpriced it was. I found that and a ton of complaints about how the units went belly up after a few weeks and then took months to get fixed. Stay away from these clowns..... they are not your garden variety thieves, they are genuine scam artists. I expect the lawsuits from various state's attorney generals to be filed in short order.
