Our EdenPURE heaters have helped us to cut our heating bills dramatically.
Nov 23, 2011
Over the years I have written hundreds of reviews on a wide variety of books, videos and compact discs. Every once in a great while I will write a review about a consumer product that has really impressed me. Such was the case back in 2009 when I reviewed the EdenPURE Gen 3 heater. I was so thrilled with the performance of this product that I just naturally assumed that most other reviewers would love it as well. Not so fast! It appears that the opinion on the EdenPURE heater is sharply divided. There seems to be no middle ground. People either love it or hate it. Since I am entering my 4th season as an EdenPURE customer I will present my case for this product once again right here. Here is what I wrote in October 2009:
"With the onset of cooler weather just around the corner it is time to think about how you can reduce the cost of heating your home this winter. Let me say at the outset that the Eden Pure GEN3 Model 1000 Portable Heater is not for everyone. If you live in a big house with large open rooms and cathedral ceilings then read no further. You'll have to look elsewhere to solve your problem. But if you reside in a smaller home and have the ability to close doors then the Eden Pure heater just might be your ticket to significantly lower heating costs.
My wife and I purchased our first Eden Pure heater about two years ago. Given the escalating price of fuel oil we felt we needed to find an alternative way to keep our home comfortable during the chilly New England winter. I spotted a full page ad in our local newspaper for the Eden Pure heater and decided to give it a try. All Eden Pure heaters come with a 60 day total satisfaction guarantee. 60 days is more than enough time to determine whether or not this product is going to work for you. We decided to purchase the smaller Model 500 unit and began using it to heat our living room in the evening. We kept our thermostat at 58. While the smaller model was OK it did not make the room as toasty warm as we had hoped. After about two months the infrared bulb failed forcing us to return the unit to the manufacturer for replacement. The replacement unit arrived just days later with a letter of apology. To compensate for our inconvenience the folks at Eden Pure upgraded us to the Model 1000 product at no additional charge. As it turned out this was a terrific break for us as the Model 1000 was exactly what we needed. To make a long story short we have since purchased another Model 1000 for our bedroom and bought another for our pastor to use in his bedroom at the rectory. We count ourselves very happy customers of this product. We continue to be very frugal about they way we heat our home and use our heating system as little as possible. I would estimate that it costs us no more than 15 cents an hour to use the Eden Pure heater. Furthermore, over the past two winters I would estimate that we have saved in the neighborhood of $200-$300 per year on heating oil. In essence, these Eden Pure heaters have practically paid for themselves.
One final note. Unlike other electric heaters we have used the Eden Pure GEN3 Model 1000 Portable Heater will not dry out the air. This is a one of major reasons we are so happy with this product. Also, this unit does not get hot so it is perfectly safe to use around little kids and pets. Finally, the unit is mounted on wheels making it pretty easy to move from room to room. If you are actively seeking ways to cut the cost of heating your home consider Eden Pure. Check them out online. You may discover a way to keep you and your family comfortable this winter at a price you can afford."
And now EdenPURE is offering it's next generation heater....the GEN4. The folks at Biotech Research have tweaked the product just a bit to make it all the better. Among the improvements is a new electronic thermostat and the addition of customized Sylvania Hi-Efficiency heating elements. I must tell you that I have bought 3 EdenPURE heaters over the years and they have definitely lived up to their billing. For me the bottom line is that if your house meets the criteria described above you should definitely give this a try. EdenPURE's 60-day no-risk money-back guarantee still applies. So what have you got to lose? Highly recommended.

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more

The EdenPURE Quartz Infrared Heater has been one of the most popular quartz infrared heater over the past few years. Unlike some of it's competitors, EdenPURE has continued to make improvements to it's heater line for the 2010-2011 winter season. One of the new models for the 2010-2011 winter season is the EdenPURE GEN4 Quartz Infrared Heater.
