Winter is on its way (sigh) and with it the need to stay warm. Unfortunately for us our house is poorly insulated and the furnace just can't keep up. To stay extra cozy we rely on portable heaters to boost the warmth in our home. We have tried many different brands and have had many fails. Too slow to heat up, cords that get hot, the list is endless. Recently we were given the chance to review a heater by Nikko Lighting and I have to say I'm impressed!

So how does it stack up? Read on and find out!
On a particularly cold night last week I decided to put this heater to the test. I plugged it in, cranked it to high and went to brush my teeth. When I returned a few minutes later the room was quite warm.
I then decided to touch various parts to see if they were hot (dangerous I know) and all that was hot was the front. The cord, sides and back were all safe to handle. This is a huge plus and makes me feel safe using it.
When I attempted to pick it up by the handle located on the back it shut off until it was safely grounded. For safety reasons you should never move it while it is on (nor should it be placed on tables). Having said that, its good to know that if it were to be knocked over it will shut off.
The little knob inside the circle (bottom right) is the tip over switch
It isn't overly loud however it does cause a bit of vibration on the floor. Definitely not a deal breaker and something to be expected.
This heater is exactly what I needed and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs/wants to warm up their home or office.
