I just returned a Comfort Furnace (similar to Eden Pure) after 40 days
of trial. It provided good (but expensive) heat while the weather was
just cool (40s). When it got real cold, I had to run the furnace a lot
to stay warm. The thing is just too "wimpy" to be useful.

So, how good or bad was it? Why did you take it back? What was you
trying to heat?
I thought about getting one for my shop. It don't have to heat it to
72 degrees, but 55 degrees would be fine. I would only use it at most
a few hours a day. My shop is insulated well, but it is 1200 sq. ft.
When the temps were "cool" (40s) it seemed to work well. When it got
cold, I had to run the furnace or propane heater to keep comfortable.
The room is 22 feet X 30 feet with an 18 foot cathedral ceiling.
Combining the cost of electricity with oil and propane made it cost more
to use the comfort furnace. The Comfort Furnace is a clone of the Eden
Pure and uses infra-red bulbs and a quiet blower. It uses 1500 watts
(verified with a KillAWatt meter.

Thanks for the info. The high ceilings make a huge difference for
sure. They claim it wil heat 100 sq. ft., I assume they mean with 8
ft. ceilings which is 8000 cu ft. Your room was approx. the same cu
ft. ....just higher. :-)
