Sunheat Infrared Heaters

Anybody have experience with these. Advertised as supplemental heat up to 1000sq.ft. and primary heating source up to 500 sq;ft., retail at $379. Ad says 35% less energy than conventional electric heater. It's rated at 1.5kw. Just wondering if this all marketing hype or if there claims have any merit.

Hi Jeff,
The final results are in: Marketing hype: 1 Merit: 0
One kWh of electricity, no matter how it's converted into heat, provides you with the same number of BTUs. A $40.00 oil filled electric radiator would be just as effective and you could use the $340.00 you saved to help pay your electric bill.
Cheers, Paul
