"Be sure to turn the lights off when you leave the room!" We heard it from our parents, and we say it to our own children. It's simple to understand that leaving the lights on in an unattended room wastes energy... but what about your heating? Many homes rely on a central heater that attempts to keep the whole house at one temperature. With a Vornado heater, you can heat only the rooms you are in to perfection and back off the heat for the rest of the home. Vornado's powerful circulator propels heat throughout your space similar to how a central heater's air duct delivers warmth to each room.
Fact 2: The Whole Room Difference Makes A Big Difference
Heating the room you're in can save you serious money - but any old heater won't do it. Vornado's Whole Room Heaters are engineered to heat entire rooms using effective air circulation called "Vortex Action". While all heaters create heat, ordinary heaters only heat the space immediately around them because they do not adequately move the heat throughout the room. Vornado heaters feature powerful circulators that distribute the heat throughout the space. Upgrade from a "space" heater to a whole room heater and you'll see what a difference Vornado Vortex Heating makes.
Fact 3: Smart Heat Control = Smart Energy Use
Vornado heaters use "smart" control technology to regulate room temperature to precise levels. Heaters such as the VH2 and TVH500 use an on-board thermostat to tell the unit when to turn on and off based on user-selected temperature settings. The AVH2, DVTH, iControl and TVH600 go one step farther. Instead of cycling the system on and off, the system regulates the heat output an dfan speed, keeping the space heated to within a 4 degree range. Smarter heat control equates to smarter use of energy - and no other line of heaters offers the level of heating control that Vornado provides.
So How Much Can I Really Save?
As heating bills continue to rise, over the course of the winter, the savings really stack up. For example, if you lower your whole house thermostat by 5 degrees, and use a Vornado Whole Room Heater to keep the room you are in comfortable, you can save well over $150 dollars per winter season based on energy costs in Wichita, KS.
Here's how we calculated the energy savings figure:
Savings from turning down the House Thermostat (Base house is 1500 SQ FT, Less than 10 years old - Heated with natural gas. Location: Wichita, KS)
Thermostat set to 70 degrees F - $1,902
Thermostat set to 65 degrees F - $1,653
Annual Savings = $249
Cost To Run A Vornado Heater In The Room You Are In:
(Running the heater for 8 hours a day, 7 days a week for a heating season of 20 weeks, The heater will draw an average of 750 Watts)
.075 KW x 8 hr day x 7 days a week x 20 weeks/season = 840KWH/Season
840KWH/Season x .0868 $/KWH = $72.91/Season
$249 - $72.91 = $176.09 / Heating Season
Notice that this calculation has the Vornado running 8 hours a day for 7 days a week. Typically our users only leave their heater on while they are in a room - so you can imagine the savings!
