  • Product Overview

    Warm an entire room—from floor to ceiling—quickly and efficiently with the Vornado Vortex TouchStone 500 Heater. Also known as the Vornado EH1-0032-28, this electric space heater was recently recommended as a best buy by a leading consumer reporting agency. It operates quietly to provide even warmth throughout your space while keeping energy costs and consumption low. Plus, this compact lightweight heater can easily be moved to any room that needs an extra boost of warmth. The Vornado TVH 500 Vortex heater also includes a variety of features to make operation simple and hassle-free. These include Vornado's unique Vortex airflow system, a top-mounted control panel with LED readout, simple push-button controls, an easy-to-use remote, and multiple safety features.

    Effective, Even Whole-Room Heating

    Don't let the small size of the Vornado TVH500 Touchstone Vortex heater fool you. This 8-pound heater delivers 1,500 watts of heating power to cover rooms as large as 256 square feet or 16 feet by 16 feet with 8-foot ceilings. Thanks to Vornado's Vortex action, you can rest assured that your entire room will be filled with warmth. Plus, its unique airflow system ensures that no uncomfortable hot and cold cycles are created because air is constantly being heated and recirculated.

    The Vortex process also makes your Vornado TVH500 more energy efficient than traditional space heaters. Unlike most other heaters that only heat the area directly in front of the unit and leave the rest of your room cold—which causes the heater to run longer at a higher temperature and use more energy—the Vornado EH1-0032-28 uses Vortex technology to circulate air throughout your space in a tornado-like fashion. This airflow pattern blankets your room evenly in comfortable warmth, using less energy.

    Hassle-Free Control Panel

    Adjusting the temperature and settings on your Vornado Vortex Touchstone 500 heater is exceptionally easy thanks to the top-mounted control panel and push-button controls. The Vornado heater's control panel features an LED readout that allows you to easily view the set temperature, the room's ambient temperature, the heat setting mode, and the timer. Using the buttons on the control panel, users can easily toggle between three modes (high heat, low heat, and fan-only), set their desired temperature, and program the heater's timer. Audible beeps occur whenever a change is made to ensure more precise programming.

    The Vornado TVH 500 Vortex heater also comes with a convenient remote control, which allows you to make adjustments to your heater settings from the comfort of your sofa or favorite chair.

    Multi-Level Safety Protection

    Your Vornado Vortex Heat Touchstone 500 (EH1-0032-28) comes equipped with multiple safety features to keep you safe and warm. These features include:

    • Cool-Touch Body: The Vortex TVH500 is made of fire-resistant steel as well as a double-wall heat insulation barrier to ensure your heater is always cool to the touch.

    • Safe Exit Air Temperature: Heated air exits your Vornado heater at 120 degrees F, which is warm enough to safely heat your entire room.

    • Non-Glowing Heating Element: The heating element does not glow—even on high heat mode. Not only are non-glowing heating elements safer, they also last longer.

    • Tip-Over Switch: In the event that your heater tips toward the front or back, the Tip-Over Switch will automatically turn the heater off for safety.

    • Safety Shut-Off System: The Vornado EH1-0032-28 comes with a Safety Shut-Off System to prevent overheating, which may occur as a result of the inlet or outlet being blocked, a foreign object preventing the blade from turning, or the appliance tipping over. The Safety Shut-Off System automatically stops power to the heating element. To restore power, you'll need to manually reset the heater.

    Summary

    With 1,500 watts of efficient heating power, an adjustable thermostat, easy digital controls, and multiple safety features—the Vornado TVH 500 Touchstone Vortex Heater is your ideal solution for economical whole room heating. As you shop, be sure to consider its unique features and potential drawbacks as they relate to your needs.

    What Customers Love

    • Automatic Temperature Control - Internal thermostat will hold your desired room temperature.
    • Cost-Saving Operation - Temperature control, a programmable timer, and efficient heating technology can help save on your energy bill.

    Things To Consider

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the main difference between the 500 and the 600 models?

    The main difference between the Vornado TV500 Heater and the Vornado TVH600 Heater is user convenience. The TVH600 model features a touchscreen control panel and an advanced remote control that monitors room temperature.

    When you lose power to your home, will the heater come back on or do you have to reset it?

    The TVH500 is not equipped with an automatic restart function and will therefore have to be reset upon power loss.

      I love this heater. I returned two other models before buying this one. I researched it on the web and found it to be the best rated for the money. I use it to heat a converted garage that has very little heat. It does the job! The other space heaters did not raise the temp more than two or three degrees in hours and this raises the temp nearly ten degrees in an hour or less. I did not believe a heater this small could do the job but it does! The safety features are great- if I move it while on, it will turn off which makes me feel safe. The remote and timer are a great convenience, and it is very quiet!!! I highly recommend this product!

      The heater is encased in a solid secure feeling little housing. I expected a more substantial heater with perhaps a stronger flow of air than I got with this. The strength and ability to heat a room compares with other tiny space heaters I own which were a third of the price, so it was a disappointment. However, I do like that the plug is grounded and that the heater won't likely tip over easily, so would recommend it if this was the primary concern. Other than that, I wasn't impressed.

        Have been using Vornado heaters for ten years. Would not purchase another brand.
        They have serviced my units under warranty, no questions asked. This model, TVH500 is my favorite. I like the fact that the fan turns off when it reaches the set temperature. I must also add that the remote comes in very handy,too.

        Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

        This particular Vornado Heater is all heavy
        gauge metal. Like all six models of the Vornado
        heaters that I own, this one performs very well.
        The main thing that people need to know about
        Vornado heaters, is to allow at least six or
        more feet of open space directly in front of the heater. This will allow the vortex that these
        heaters create to circulate and heat all of the
        air in the room. If you want a heater that just
        heats the space around the heater, this is not
        the one. If you want a heater that will last for
        years, and will heat the entire room, get this one!

          I purchased the heater to keep the enclosed porch warm during the coldest months. I set the temperature and it cycles on/off when it needs to. It works great and I don't worry about overheating or tipping over. It's quiet and very efficient.

          We tried this heater twice(tuning on and off), it made such a racket as if the fan blade was hitting something...a definate return. We will look for something else. No problem with the return.

          Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

          We have a partially finished basement that is lacking the heating ducts to keep the space warm in the winter. The space is a good 10 degrees cooler than our main living level. The heater does a great job! It brings the temp up the needed 8 degrees or so to be comfortable for the kids to play video games and watch movies. I would definitely recommend this product.

          Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

          I just bought my second Vornado TVH500. I've been using one in an unheated bathroom and it is a pleasure. I get comfortable heat that fills the room almost right away. I've been carrying the unit into my office, which is chilly, and it works well there too. I decided I was tired of carrying it back and forth, so I bought another one. The remote control is handy and the timer lets me set it for as long as I want without having to worry about running it too long. Excellent value and highly functional. No problems at all.
