Handy Heater Major Features
Handy Heater – Design
The very first thing you’ll notice about the Handy Heater is how small it actually is. It is not super small that you can slip it in your pocket, however, it is small enough to be inserted in a wall outlet without the worries of it dropping. The compact design of the Handy Heater makes it surprisingly portable and this is exactly what you need from it. It is also lighter and less bulky than I initially thought, that was a pleasant surprise. The fact you can easily carry it during your travels makes it an ideal choice.
There is an adequately sized digital LCD display on the unit. There are clearly marked temperature control buttons, they allow you to adjust the temperature from 60 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. There is also a fan speed button that allows you to change how fast or slow the fan blows air. The Handy Heater also features a timer button that makes it easy to program it to run from 1 to 12 hours. You won’t have to get out of bed to turn it off, which is a great feature to have in a heater.
A point to be noted here that despite the description claiming that the Handy Heater doesn’t make any sound and remains whisper-quiet, you will hear the fan working. While it is certainly not loud enough to disturb you, it might be too annoying for some people who can only sleep in dead silence.
Handy Heater – How It Works
Handy Heater – Real-World Tests
Now on to how the Handy Heater actually performs when you use it in real-world scenarios. I used it in my home office and then took it for a ride to a nearby city and used it in a small motel room. Here are some of the things I found:
The Handy Heater works really well if you have a closed space. This means you will need to make sure all the doors and windows are closed when you start using it. If you have anything open, the Handy Heater will struggle to make any significant difference in temperature.
This is to be expected though, any space heater will have a lot of trouble when you use it in an open space, and the Handy Heater is exactly the same. As the heater basically heats up the air in the room, if there is a fresh air intake, the temperature won’t go up at all. So make sure there is no active circulation happening in the space you want to heat.
I made the mistake of keeping a small window open in my office and the Handy Heater didn’t make a significant dent in the temperature. However, once I closed it, it really started working. It hardly took 15 minutes to make the room feel cozy and hot. Which is saying a lot because it is a portable and handy heater that really packs a powerful punch. My home office is a small space so the change in temperature was faster and the heater maintained it quite easily.
In the motel room, the Handy Heater took some time to really get things going but once it did, it worked flawlessly through the night. I used the convenient timer function to let it run overnight and it provided me with a nice comfortable temperature throughout the slightly chilly November night.
