Rated 5 out of 5 by Appleton214 Furnace failed in 20 degree temps
We live in Central Wisconsin. On Sunday, Feb 14th, our furnace failed. Our HVAC provider left three of these heaters with us to help keep the house warm until a new furnace could be installed. Our 1400 sq. ft., 2 story home only dropped to 64 degrees (from 72) by the next morning, and we only ran one of these heaters on the first floor overnight.
The size and format are much better than some of the ceramic heaters I've seen at larger retailers (plastic, odd shaped housings).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Frankb Warm!
Not nearly as efficient as described or rated. Air is "warm", and unless you stand directly in front of the unit, you will not gain much benefit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChopperBill Five stars except it is noisy.
Best small heater I have because it blows more hot air to where you want. Would have given it 5 stars except it was noisy. I took it apart and found a a few things that were rubbing each other and put foam weather stripping on the feet to keep from transferring the noise. Much quieter now! Dont even use the other brands I own, just the Broan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoMo Excellent space heater for a small to medium size area.
Very well constructed and a great value for the money. The space heater had been used last winter and preformed flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angel2012 My Broan heater 6201
recently had to move into a 5th wheel for the winter time. SInce the unit runs mostly on propane, I was having to have the 5-7gallon tanks refilled evey couple of weeks. I hated having to do that so I sought out a portable heater for inside. This little model may fool u by its small size but its wonderful. I havent used it over night as yet because I dont know if it is eqiupt for leaving running over night or unattended. If any one can tell i can that would be great to save on the propane.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dickE Not so good thermostat
I use one in my RV and, yes, it's a good little heat producer....but the thermostat leaves one lacking. I'm putting a line-voltage thermostat in the power cord to fix it. One problem is that the thermostat sticks. Another problem might be that the thermostat is too close to the heating element. I also have an older version of this same heater and it suffers the same delemma.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MQ55 Big Heat 6201
I bought a 6201 model Big Heat portable heater, and i was surprise how much this little portable, heat's and how powerful the little fan blow's. I have bought 3 other portable heater's for my inclosed race car trailer and this little thing out did them all. It even work's ahole lot better than the roof mount A/C heater unit i have on my trailer. I will definily be telling my friend's at the race track about this little heater and i will show them how well it work's so they can see for them self. I will be buying some more 6201, one for my laundry room, and another one for my trailer and one for a spare.
