1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money 20 Jan 2013

Not very powerful, not a lot of heat coming out of it compared to my cheaper heater at 8. Not worth the money!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good room heater with fairly powerful fan 3 Feb 2014
Other reviewers have commented that it doesn't give out a lot of heat, and the air coming out of the unit certainly isn't as hot at that which came out of the small, flat 2kW heater I bought it to replace. It does, however, have a much more powerful fan, moving a much greater volume of air per second.
The lower temperature by itself doesn't mean that the heater is less effective at heating. The unit is transferring more energy (by 50%) to a proportionally greater volume of air passing through it, so while the air leaving the heater isn't as hot there is much more of it, which in total transfers more heat energy to the surroundings.

In summary, it's better for heating a whole room then my previous 2kW heater with a small fan but not as good for sitting in front of.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faux Industrial Junk 5 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
Don't be fooled by the metal casing and yellow JCB colouring.

I bought this fan just under 2 years ago to heat a small garage during the coldest winter days. The coldest the garage got inside was about 5 degrees. Be warned this is not a heavy duty piece of equipment. It's weak and ineffective and never actually raised the temperature of my garage significantly. What's more mine packed up over summer 2012 somehow (maybe too much dust got in through it's 'tough' casing) so when I fired it up this week... nothing, just a little red 'on' light.

Absolute junk. I hope JCB diggers are built to better spec than this fan heater.

1.0 out of 5 stars Made in China. 26 Mar 2013
JCB has factories everywhere, including China - where is heater is made. It is expensive and will not last, better to buy a TROTEC TDS 20 electric fan heater 3.3 kW model - it is more robust, cheaper, more powerful and will last because it is made in Germany.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what i expected 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I am not very impressed with this product at all
I have a Glen heater which is also rated 3000
and it is far the better heater and cost half the
money I have also a very cheap heater which
is only rated at 2000 and even this heater seems
to produce more heat For the money I paid I
would have expected something far better in the
way of output

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly good 13 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
This puts out a suprising amount of heat, we use it in our martial arts dojo which is 1800sq mtrs. We use two and within 30 mins the room is at a comfortable temp. They are so good we now use them in our reception and other common areas too. Plus our club colours are black and yellow so often people think we've had them specially made
