Honeywell HeatGenius™ Ceramic Heater - Review

I received product for review from Honeywell.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I wrote a post a few days ago with a review on the Honeywell UberHeat™ Ceramic Heater, which gets used in the guest room/office.  Now I'd like to tell you about another heater from the same company - the Honeywell HeatGenius™ Ceramic Heater.  This particular heater is put in to use in the garage when my husband is hanging out in there, or I use it when I'm doing my thing in the laundry room.

Thankfully this winter hasn't been too harsh in my area.  And I much prefer it that way.  When chilling weather does strike I can count on Honeywell heaters to kill the chill.

Because this ceramic heater has several functions, I recommend that you read the instructions and manual before using.  There is no assembly required.  It can be put to use as soon as it's taken out of the box.  The heater is powered with electricity by plugging in the cord.

There is a power on/off button and several settings.  When the heater is first turned on each time, it will default to one particular setting.  So, you will need to push the control buttons each time to select the setting you want.

The heat settings include:

Floor Area - low heat:  Warms up the floor area in front of the heater.

Personal - moderate heat: There's a choice of two options.  One provides heat using the upper heating elements and the other slightly increases heat output.

Room - moderate-high heat: Brings heat to cool, drafty rooms.  Can choose moderate or maximum heat level.

Thermostat - moderate-high heat:  This allows you to control and choose your desired temperature.

Heatphase Timer: Gradually transitions the room temperature from warmer to cooler with a timer.

Quiet Mode:  Has a low heat setting and a fan speed to produce white noise.

The Honeywell HeatGenius™ Ceramic Heater needs to be placed on a firm, level surface and kept at a safe distance from surrounding objects.  I particularly like that this heater has several safety features, with one being a tip-over switch that will disable the heater if it is tipped.  A high temperature safety control prevents overheating, and a thermal cut-off fuse that will permanently shut down the heater if it operates at a higher than normal temperature.  The heater is made with heat resistant materials and is cool to the touch.

Because the heater has so many settings, I can set the heat to exactly what I want and Jason can set it to his liking when he's using it.  I don't have to be too hot, and he doesn't have to be too cold.  It's the perfect heater for us.

I really like that heater. I have not thought of putting it in the garage. Thank you for the review.

I do have to say that, that is pretty handy on days/nights when it's cold outside. I'm such a wimp in the cold. I prefer it to be warm.

This looks like a great heater. I like that it has safety features such as shutting off when it tips over, prevents overheating, etc. One can never be too safe when you have children or furkids. Thanks for the great review!

I really like the Floor area - low heat option. Sometimes all you need in a room is something to take the chill and draft off of the floor!
