The latest issue of the AARP Bulletin had an ad for a new advanced
portable heater that they claim can cut the heating bill by up to 50 %.
It is the EdenPURE sold by BioTech Research. The unit is reported to be
safe and will cover an entire room (up to 1000 square feet) with warmth
from floor to ceiling. Does anyone here have any information on this?
IMO, it is bordering on scam. It is an electric heater. It takes a given
amount of electricity to produce a given amount of heat. All electric
heaters are 100% efficient.
So, you ask, how will it cut my heating cost by 50%? Not be reduced energy
or increased efficiency. If you heat the one room you are using and don't
heat the rest of the house so much, you can reduce your heating cots by 50%.
Keep in mind, you may freeze your ass off in the other rooms though.
EdenPure is not changing the laws of physics, just tampering with wording
for an ad.
