  • Product Overview

    The compact Touchstone 500 Vortex Heater quickly heats entire rooms while keeping energy costs and consumption low. Patented Vortex technology ensures warm air reaches all corners of your room, and you can move it anywhere since it only weighs 8 pounds. Numerous convenience and safety features like digital controls and a cool-touch exterior make this an easy choice for consumers. In fact, it was recently named a Best Buy by a consumer reporting agency. 

    Use the digital control panel to set your room temperature and pick between low and high heat levels—depending on the size of your room and how warm you want it. This heater comes in both white and black options. Both models come with a fan-only mode, which can be used for year-round comfort when heat isn’t needed.

    Patented Vortex Technology

    Designed to heat a 16-foot by 16-foot single room, the Vornado TVH500 uses patented Vortex technology to circulate warm air from wall to wall. A strong fan helps it create a tornado-like action to circulate air—which not only heats the whole room but also maintains an even room temperature.  

    Some portable heaters create uncomfortable hot and cold cycles because they turn off and on to maintain a set temperature, but the Vornado TVH500 Vortex Heater avoids them with automatic climate control. This feature uses continuous variable heat and air output to maintain the set temperature and often allows this model to run on less power.

    Additional Features

    • Lightweight and Compact: This heater can sit on the floor, a table, or various other places around your home.
    • LCD Screen: An illuminated LCD touchscreen allows for simple, precise control of your­ heater and its various settings.
    • Programmable Timer: Set the TVH 500 to turn off up to 9 hours in advance.
    • Fan-Only Mode: This model’s strong fan can be used any time of year without heat.
    • Low and High Heat Options: Choose the option that best fits your needs and room size.
    • Durable Design: A wide-body design provides increased stability, while a metal exterior stays cool to the touch.

    Safety Features

    • Safe Exit Air Temperature: Heated air exits your Vornado heater at 120 degrees F, which is warm enough to safely heat your entire room.
    • 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.
    • 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:  This prevents overheating, which may occur as a result of the inlet or outlet being blocked or the appliance tipping over.


    Place the Vornado Touchstone 500 Chrome Whole Room Heater on a table or the floor in any room to stay warm and comfortable all year. You can pick between sleek white or black options.   

    What Customers Love

    • Digital Controls: A digital control board is located at the top of the unit so you can easily set your room temperature, the fan speed, programmable timer, or make any other adjustments.
    • Automatic Temperature Control: An internal thermostat will hold your desired room temperature.
    • Whole-Room Warmth: Many heaters just warm the areas around them, but this model truly heats entire rooms from wall to wall.

      Comments about Vornado Touchstone 500 Whole Room Vortex Heater (TVH500):

      I just got this product yesterday and used it . The temperature in my living room with 2 big bay windows went up right away 3 degrees without adjusting the temp of the whole house.I am pleased and almost sure this will decrease my heating bills.I plan to buy another one for my other room with bay windows.This is just very new so I have still to test it for durability.
