and see that several folks recommend DeLonghi "oil filled" radiator type heaters. I had one a dozen years ago and liked it. I note that Consumer reports doesn't rate them that highly as it takes "too long" to heat up. Is the DeLonghi Mica panel a different technology, even from reading about it I can't quite figure it out?
In the last couple years I note that CR will give high rating to products but their subscribers (and Amazon reviewers) often do NOT agree.
We keep our house (No. CA) around 63 during the day, heat off at night and have a gas fireplace that works well for spot heating in family room. We need a space heater for our office-- 130 sq ft- where we might spend ONLY 1-2 hours a day and not every day so I'm wondering if the DeLonghi will work efficiently for that or will it be a hassle to remember to turn it on 30 mins before we go in the room, etc. I'm not thrilled about the small electric blower type heaters but maybe that would be a better solution-- comments and brand suggestions welcome.
Finally, does anyone have experience with "convection" space heaters such as Soleus Air HM2-15R-32. Do they have the same problems in terms of taking a long time to heat up a room and not being good at "spot" heating?
