Lowes 98826 – DeLonghi TCH7090ERL Ceramic Space Heater

The Delonghi TCH 7090ERL heater from Lowes.  This is Lowes item 98826. Best Feature: The eco-energy function saves electricity by selecting the ideal power level based on the set temperature and current room temperature.

Portable and Standby Whole House Generators

Buying a generator can be an intimidating process. However, you can take control by being informed and getting organized. Here is a simple checklist to use to help in choosing the correct generator to protect your home and family.

What Types of Generators Are There?

Generators come in two basic types: standby and portable. The source of backup power you ultimately choose will be determined by many factors, including your power requirements.

Standby or Whole House Generators: Standby generators are like mini power plants. These permanent generators are commonly fueled by natural gas or propane. The electricity is then routed into the home or business through an automatic transfer switch, which also automatically starts and stops the generator.A standby generator is permanently installed outside your home or commercial building and wired directly into the electrical system to provide power to some or all of your home’s circuits during a disruption of normal utility power. They produce consistent and stable power that computers and other sensitive electronic equipment can use safely. Standby generators can run for extended periods using the natural gas or LP fuel supply. In a power outage, a permanently installed standby generator returns your home or business to power within seconds, even when you’re away. Read More…

Lowes 485310 Duraflame 9HM9000-C240 Infrared Quartz Heater

Lowes 485310 Duraflame Infrared Quartz Portable Electric Whole-Room Heater with Thermostat and Remote.  The Lowes model number is  9HM9000-C240.  This heater is made exclusively for Lowes by Duraflame, though it is very similar to models at Home Depot, Walmart and Menards. It also should be alternative to consider for the Eden Pure infrared heaters out there.  This infrared quartz heater is perfect for adding warmth to any living space. The infrared heat is absorbed by the heat exchanger and then released into the room which allows the heat to distribute evenly and quickly without drying out your skin or environment. This unit can heat up to 1000 square ft. and the infrared heating elements have a lifetime of over 20,000 hours. This heater is great for zone heating and can help reduce high energy bills.
It’s a great little heater that works exactly as stated. If you’re trying to heat an entire house or  have a big drafty room to heat, then it’s not right for you. Duraflame has a nice design, heats a room well,  and does a better job than most $90-$189 ceramic heaters with the same BTU output.

Infrared quartz heating elements provide plenty of heat to warm up to 1000 sq. ft., and the unit comes fully-assembled so it’s ready to heat out of the box. Concealed casters are already installed allowing you to take the heat with you wherever you go. The remote control allows you to control settings from your chair or sofa. I was really impressed with the heat output. It uses infrared bulbs to heat with and those bulbs have an average lifespan of 50,000 hours.  When it hits 40 degrees at night here it has no trouble keeping the temperature up in the 20 x 22, 450 square foot room I have it in. That’s with it set at 72 degrees and my main furnace thermostat is now turned down to 66. I did have an oil radiator heater before this Duraflame heater, but this unit tops all other heaters I have owned. Wish I had tried this one first. I also had a small ceramic heater and it’s nothing compared to this unit. Duraflame puts off a nice warm heat and  warms throughout the area. Read More…
