I have used this forum to promote the good, trash the bad, and downright berate the ugly when it comes to companies and products. For a change, this experience was better than good.

Living in a mobile home in south Texas presents a challenge: During the winter, the nights can be cold, but the days are usually pretty warm. I decided to purchase a space heater to take the chill out of the bedroom at night without having to run the central heating in the whole house. Since I basically live out of one bedroom, an electric space heater seemed the ideal solution. I tried a quartz radiant heater, but I found the heat highly directional, and the heater cycled between high and off, causing the room to cycle between chilly and hot. After doing user review research on the 'net, I decided to give the Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600) a try. I purchased the unit from Sylvane, because they had the best price anywhere.
And y'all know me, I spent a good time looking for the best price.

When I unpacked the unit I was dubious: This heater is pretty small in physical size. But after turning it on, the heater did not take long to bring the bedroom up to a comfortable 75 degrees. This is a large master bedroom with questionable insulation, close to 16' x 16', so I was surprised when this small unit maintained the room temperature without having to run continuously. The temperature outside was in the mid 30's and the thermostat on the central heat was below 55. The fan is very quiet, but obviously efficient. Unlike the quartz heater, the Vornado's continuously variable heat keeps the room warm without cycling between warm and cool, and without the annoying directionality. The remote thermostat ensures you are at the temperature you desire, and works very effectively. I prefer to sleep with the temperature in the 60s, and even in the large bedroom the Vornado can maintain that setting in low heat mode. I have only needed the high setting during the day on colder days to maintain 75.

The backlit touch screen on the top of the heater screen works well, with a user-friendly layout, although it is more convenient to use the remote. The only criticism I have is the remote should be re-designed to display the temperature you are setting while you are adjusting it with the remote. The remote only displays the current room temperature it is sensing; therefore, you have to look at the heater to see what the setting is.

Overall this is a wonderful product, and well worth the premium over the cost of a simple space heater. And for all your air purifier, heater or related products, give Sylvane a try. You won't be disappointed.

WAS LOOKING FOR A NEW HEATER HAD A VORNADO BEFORE SO WAS LOOKING TO UPGRADE. READ THE REVIEWS ON THE TVH600 WHICH DIDN'T READ WELL DUE TO THE VERY SAME TROUBLE I RAN INTO. GOT THE PRODUCT IN AND CONNECTED IT AND IT DIDN'T WORK (9AGH)&%%) I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE THOSE REVIEWS WHICH IS WHY I WENT AHEAD AND ORDERED ONE. I'D FIGURE THAT WITH THE BAD PRESS THE MANUFACTURER GOT THEY WOULD DO A SWEEPING AUDIT TO FIX THE PROBLEM GLITCH THEY ARE HAVING OF SHIPPING A PRODUCT THAT ISN'T WORKING WHEN RECEIVED BY THE CUSTOMER. I HAD TO RETURN THE PRODUCT LIKE SOME OTHER BUYERS DID. SO IF YOU DON'T WANT THE DELAY AND TROUBLE OF HAVING TO RETURN A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT DON'T GET THIS ONE.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT THEY WOULD DO A RECALL AND CHECK THE HEATER BEFORE IT LEAVES THE WAREHOUSE.

THEY EMAILED ME THE RETURN SHIPPER, SO THE RETURN WARRANTY IS GOOD. LET'S HOPE WHEN I GET THE"FIXED" ONE BACK IT WILL WORK AND WITH A 5 YEAR WARRANTY IT IS GOOD.

not good for 20 X 20 space

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

My garage workshop is about 20' by 20' but this heater would not even begin to heat it enough for me to work. Ran the heater for over an hour, and couldn't raise the temperature even 5 degrees and walls and ceiling is heavily insulated.

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Okay, First I'll cut to the chase on the Vornado
TVH600. If you want a room heater (not a space
heater), this is the one, hands down! I have been using Vornado fans & heaters for about 20+ years,
and their products cannot be beat, as far as
performance, durability,features, etc. I currently own six different models of Vornado
heaters:EH1,VH101,VH110,TVH500, TVH600, and
I-Control EH1. All of these models will heat an entire room, not just the space in front of the heater. The main difference between these models are features. I have spent at least a couple of thousand dollars trying every type space heater made, before discovering Vornado. Get it, you will Love it!

Taking the chill off New Hampshire's Winter

By Ross

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Re: Vornado TVH600 heater with remote.
I own several types of Vornado heaters and have generally been satisfied. I paid the premium price for this one because of the remote control feature.
The remote works to change temp, change mode (hi/lo heat or just fan) and shut off. However, if you can't see the control screen on the heater itself you don't know what mode you are in when using the remote. You can change the temp up or down using the remote and you can change mode - the problem is, you don't know what mode you are in when you are operating the remote from across the room. The remote should have the same screen as the heater, or there should be separate tones to indicate what mode has been changed.

I'm still getting up to see what mode is on the heater unit's screen, which is annoying.
Otherwise, the unit is nice and quiet and warms a room very well. Timer function is nice if you want to use it at bedtime to shut off heater after a certain period of time. Tip over safety feature is nice with pets and kids running around.

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Absolutely the best heater I ever tried. It is quieter than most. The heat is evenly spread through out the room. And I just love the touch screen and the remote control. It keeps you nice and comfortable.

best price on the best room heater

By mikenmary

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

If you want a furnace blast of hot air this is not for you. It does put out heat equal to a normal furnace vent and easily heats an average size room.
With temps in the 20's I came out from under my throw last night and even had to turn the heater down.

Sylvane also sold it to us for a lot less than I could find anywhere else.
5 year warranty too!
Thanks
