750 Watt ECO-SAVE Ceramic Electric Heaters Allow Efficent Small Area Heating Due to Compact Size

by Barbara 4. November 2013 14:07

Question about the ECO-Save Ceramic Electric Heaters.

Q: "What makes this electric space heater better than a Cozy Legs panel for an office area?"Thanks. Sara

Answer: The Cozy Legs is great for under desk heating. It is, however, a radiant heating panel. So there is no fan. Also for best use, you need a stand. So moving it is somewhat awkward.

The ECO-Save Portable Electric Heater Features Include:

  • Energy Saving
  • Low wattage
  • Reduced fire risk
  • Keeps you warm for less $$
  • Safety tip-over shut off protection
  • Variable speed fan
  • Adjustable thermostat
  • Ceramic Heating Element
  • Voltage: 120V 60Hz
  • Power: 750W
  • Weight: 4.63lbs
  • Dimensions: 8.86"x8.86"x12.4", 11” H x 7.5” Diameter
  • ETL Listed.
  • Warranty: 6 months by manufacturer
Another advantage is that you can use two of these in the same area as a single 1500 Watt heater and get better heating coverage.

Thanks for your question. Please contact us if you are interested in a quantity purchase.

Sincerely,
Barbara

Heating a Small Bedroom with Cozy Legs Panels?

by Barbara 3. March 2008 07:15
Q:"Would you be able to heat a small bedrooom if you braced one of the Cozy Legs panels to the ceiling?" Thanks. Melodee

Answer: No, the Cozy Legs panel is not meant to heat large areas like a bedroom The panel must be mounted vertically, either using the optional metal stand or adhesive attachment to a wall. So it could not be braced to the ceiling. The unit is typically used under a desk and is an energy efficient way to provide supplemental heat without blowing fuses. The power used is equivalent to a 150 watt bulb.

I hope this answered your question.

Sincerely,
Barbara

Does a 115V AC Cozy Legs use a standard USA outlet?

by Barbara 30. January 2008 11:05

Q: "My Cozy Legs radiant heater's instructions state to plug into a 115 VAC outlet. Is that a standard American household outlet?" ..Kay.

Answer: Yes, that is a standard USA outlet. Your question sent me to investigating alternating current and its voltages. (Somehow I don't recall learning this in high school physics. Or maybe I forgot?)

For residential alternating current (AC), the voltages 110V AC, 115V AC, 117V AC, 120V AC, and 125V AC are all functionally the same. Electric companies have slowly increased the line voltage over the last 100 years to cope with increased loads. The tolerance is generally +/-10%. That's +/- 11.5 volts in this case. So, a 115VAC appliance will run between 103.5 and 126.5VAC. Interestingly enough, AC power in Mexico is about 127 VAC with occasional power surges causing appliances to blow fuses.

For years, Safe Home Products has sold Kill a Watt meters and Watts Up meters that give you electrical information such as power quality of an AC outlet and what voltage, watts or amps an appliance draws, etc.
Thanks again for your interesting question.

Sincerely,
Barbara

Using Super Footwarmer Mat in a Bathroom

by Barbara 19. March 2002 08:50
Q: "Hi, Can I use this mat (ES-CZP-FWB Cozy Super Footwarmer Floor Mat) in a bathroom? Thanks, --Ron"
Answer: Good question. No one has asked this one before. This is a sealed unit. Heavy rubber, fully sealed and waterproof. Is this going to warm feet while seated on the throne at night? Or in front of the mirror while you shave? Just curious. If you have ground fault interrupters in your bathroom and the unit is unlikely to fall into the tub, shower, or stool, it should be safe. Wet feet shouldn't be an issue since it is rubber and sealed. These are used in warehouses and for drying out boots.I'll shoot this one to the manufacturer and see what their response is. Okay?Barbara
3/19/2004 Answer: The official word is yes, that it can be used in a bathroom. I am not sure how much heat would be generated through a bath rug. Some have rubberized backs. This unit come with a two prong plug. I am not enough of an electrician to know if you could replace the plug with a grounded one. It does take this unit about 25 minutes to reach 125 degrees. I guess it depends how long your shower lasts! Sincerely, Barbara
