Do not buy this!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I'm in the process of trying to return this, but basically it cuts out whatever size room you have it in, whichever heat setting you put it on and whatever temperature the room is (ie, it won't even heat a room). The maximum amount of time i've ever managed to get it to stay on for is about 5 mins and then I can't get it to turn back on again. Don't buy it, it's very frustrating!

They don't last long.

Cheap and nasty and you'll be lucky if it lasts for more than a couple of years. I bought three and only one is still runnig properly and the other two after two years only give out minimal heat.

Short lifespan
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I bought this heater a little over two years ago. It partially stopped working around one year ago (the high-heat setting would immediately cause it to short out for a few minutes), and it entirely stopped working yesterday (heater and fan both unresponsive to the controls).Previous space heaters which I've bought in this price-range have had a lifespan over five years, so I'd recommend that you look elsewhere.

One of the best small fan heaters around in my opinion, I have three in use at the moment. even use them as frost protection on plants in cold weather.

The heater's thermostat doesn't work so the heater doesn't turn on when its cold -it also doesn't generate much heat

An efficient little fan heater.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I bought this because I had had the exact same model in my study for several years, and it was excellent as the room is on 2 outside walls, and therefore cold most of the winter despite the central heating. The new heater is even better and the room becomes almost too hot now. A really worthwhile purchase and good value for the money. I thoroughly recommend it especially the improvements that have been made in this newer model.

Had this for just over a year for top up use. Few days ago it caught on fire. Luckily someone was in the room so able to prevent house fire.

Useless. Purchased as an emergency measure if heating failed

Useless. Purchased as an emergency measure if heating failed. Heating failed, plugged this in and turn it on - ran for five seconds then switches itself off. Clearly something wrong with the thermostat. Very disappointed indeed.

Product Description

The Glen GF30TSN 2kW flat fan heater is ideal for spot heating, when instantaneous heat is required. It's thermostatic control and choice of heat settings (including cool air setting) make this product an ideal heating solution for multiple applications, such as bedroom, home office or utility room, plus its compact styling makes the GF30TSN easy to move from room to room as desired, and store away when not in use. The GF30TSN is finished in a neutral white and meets stringent BEAB Intertek safety approvals, plus has a 1 year manufacturers warranty.

Fan heaters are an excellent way of providing heat to cold areas quickly and effectively, and their small footprint makes them perfect for standing on a work surface, shelf or office desk.

Look out for options such as heat settings to control the amount of energy used, plus a thermostat that can regulate the temperature of the room. Advanced features include climate control with LCD displays that monitor temperature drift more accurately than traditional thermostat models. Many models also have a cool air setting more useful in the summer monthsto help circulate the air.

Energy Saving Thermostat

Rather than set a heater to a temperature and have it blast out continuously at that rate regardless of what's happening to the temperature in the room, the Glen heather has a thermostat control which puts you back in charge.

You simply set the required temperature you wish to reach and the heater will work away quickly until reaching that setting, then it automatically stops. There is no need for the heater to keep blasting heat out that the required temperature is attained. If the temperature drops below the set level the heating process can start again to top the temperature back up to the set level.

In this way heat is only added when needed. If there is a rise in the temperature outside, which brings the room temperature up too, then the fan heater will cut out sooner. This thermostatic operation saves needless energy consumption and saves you money too.
