My basement room gets the coldest in the house. I use one of the oil filled radiator style heaters that you can buy from Home Depot. It has a timer on it with two timer settings. This allows me to have it come on early in the AM before we come downstairs, and then go off after we are gone, and then come back on before we get home, and go off around bedtime. IT makes the coldest room much more comfortable.

Size is about 2.5 feet tall by 2 feet long, by 6 inches wide. Has roller wheels to move it around the room and works well. I think it was around $80.00.

Here it is on Amazon but it's sold out. http://www.amazon.com/Kenwood-Filled-Electric-Radiator-Heater/dp/B000653KLU

I have a condo in northern Ohio that has a gas heating system. Since I was only spending a short time there in the winter, I didn't want to open an account and turn on the gas. I bought an electric fireplace for $300 delivered. It works great! It easily heated a 600 sq.ft. area while the temperature outside was in the 20's, and that was about half-throttle. It is inexpensive to operate and it looks good. I would highly recommend one for area heating.

What kind of oil does it use? Does it get hot to the touch? Should I be worried about a rambunctious child playing around it?

The thermostat for our house is in the living room, which has high ceilings. The result of this is that the heater runs trying to heat the living room while the master bedroom is noticably warmer. I would like somthing to heat the living room enough to keep this from happening.

It's all self contained. Whatever kind of oil it needs, it came with and doesn't need any added. At it's hottest setting, 95 degrees, it can be somewhat warm to the touch but it won't burn instantly. You do have a really little one though so it might be a consideration at least. I've had this one for several years so my daughter was probably 2 when we got it. She as never been burnt by it.

It will heat a decent size room. My basement room is about 20 x 25 and it will burn you out of the room once it gets hot. Having a built in thermostat, you can set it to come on at a certain time, and set it to a specific degree heat, and then go off at a certain time as well to save on electricity. I usually turn the ceiling fan on low to distribute the heat around the room evenly.

Well, congrats. I am thinking of getting a gas one put in my living room but the ole lady would only pile a bunch of crap up on it. So I am hesitant
