Uses 1.13 Kilowatts per hour in Heater Mode This item is light and easy to move, has certain advantages on older models at our home in that it has a temperature control and adjusts according to ambient temperature. These features are great.
However, we bought an energy savers electricity tester and plugged in this unit and a range of other small appliances at the house. In heater mode, this unit used 1.13 kilowatts in an hour. Other oil heaters we have ranged from .6 to 1.16. I wasn't shocked that the oil heaters used so much energy, but I was surprised that this item, which includes energy efficiency as a selling point, but has the second highest energy consumption of the 5 heating units....more info
One of the better ones I bought 2 A/Cs for two different bedrooms, this one and another leading brand with similar BTU ratings. Frankly, I was surprised at the disparity in perfomance between the two. This Whynter unit was lighter, quieter and overall much more powerful than the other one. I switched them around to to see if the room size or location was causing the problem, but ended with the same result. Needless to say I returned the other unit and bought another Whynter one. Appearance wise this looks quite good for a portable unit. I am very pleased with the selection....more info
