    Default Reliable space heater?

    Can someone please recommend a small portable space heater (1500 watt or so) that is NOT made in china? I’m sick of the ‘disposable’ ones that can’t be fixed, and need something reliable that won’t crap out when needed most.

    Here is an American company that has been around since the 1940's.
    https://www.vornado.com/home
    They have a 3 year , 5 year and 10 year guarantee (depending on which model you purchase).
    If it breaks you send it to them and they will repair it or replace it free of charge. Shipping included.
    Having said all that, I do not have any experience repairing these units. I just like the guarantee and the fact that they have been around so long.
    It takes confidence in your product to give that kind of guarantee.

    WOW! . . thanks Jack!
    that was fast!
    I just ordered one . . and will probably continue to order more as the weather gets colder. I have inadequate heating and sometimes I use 5 at a time.

    You're probably asking the wrong people. Appliance repair usually doesn't include space heaters. The only person that can recommend a particular space heater is someone that owns one because when one breaks it gets replaced and not repaired. Most space heaters are manufactured in China or Korea. That being said my neighbor swears by this one he uses in his garage: Space heater: Unique Heat Next Generation. Manufactured in USA
