Keepin' Warm with the NewAir AH-450B Electric Oil-filled Space Heater / Review

Unknown | 3:21 PM | | |
Is it just me or does winter feel like it's going to stay for a while. It's the middle of February and were still getting temps below zero... Oh my goodness is this getting annoying. But, when you live in Wisconsin, you can never tell what will happen next. The one thing though that I hate about the cold weather is the heating bill... It's ridiculous how much we are paying each month on the heating bill because the darn house just doesn't get warm enough. Especially at night!

Last month my bill came close to hitting $300 and majority of that was from the heat being on all the time. I've put plastic on the windows, insulated the house and it's still freezing. Mainly in the living room. For some reason the front of the house is colder than the back. It could maybe be the fact the living room is the biggest room of the house, but who knows.

I was recently given the opportunity to review NewAir's new Electric Oil-Filled Heater. I figured this would be perfect to try out in the living room since it happens to be the coldest room in the house.


Here are some of the features for the NewAir AH-450B:
  • Radiator is designed to quickly warm any room
  • Fan-free air circulation means super-quick operation
  • Front carrying handles and heavy-duty caster wheels - easy to move from room to room
  • Maintain the perfect room temperature with the digital timer and thermostat
  • Safely operates without fumes or flames

As you can see from the images above, we have a heater. Nothing needs to be assembled, no need to screw in any parts or any of that other fancy dancy stuff. The only thing you will need which isn't included with the heater is two AAA batteries. That is for the remote and this is optional. You can use the remote to turn the heater from a distance or you can just turn the heater on using the front panel. This heater is light weight so moving it from room to room will be very easy. The handle is also another feature I like!


Once I placed the heater in a nice spot of the living room, I plugged it in and turned it on. Now, I turned it on at about 1:27 PM and of course timed it to see how long it took to heat up. You know, surprisingly it began heating a lot quicker than I thought it would. I remember my parents having a space heater years and years ago, a big bulky one and that thing took forever to heat. And once that thing got hot, you couldn't touch it or it would burn the heck outta your hands...

That thing was vicious, lol. I never liked it, but that's what they used. Plus, those heaters were more of a fire hazard and I think that's one reason why I never bothered to get one. I mean, I've thought about it, but I didn't want to risk starting a fire or risk the kids getting injured or burned. As you can tell I'm sceptical or at least I was. The NewAir space heater basically beats the traditional heaters. It's a lot safer, it's energy efficient, light weight, easy to move from one spot to another, it doesn't get scorching hot, it has a timer which comes in handy and it heats up the room faster than you'd think. 

I mean, 10 minutes go by and you can feel a big difference! You can see more from my video.

  7. I love that you have a remote control for this heater! The oil filled heaters are much better than the fan ones because they don't make the air all dry too (and your skin!). Thank you for the review on this!

    1. You know, another thing that's great about this heater is that it has a timer. So lets say you have to run some errands, just set the timer and it'll shut off on it's own. That is a plus, especially when you are quite busy.

  10. Thanks for the excellent review on the oil heater. I haven't used a space heater since the 80's and thought that I never would again. The one we had back then kept blowing fuses and then the entire house went dark. The house was haunted and my roommate and I lived there for a year. The house was a gorgeous old Victorian that we rented for $50.00 a month. The fireplace flu closed by itself and smoked up the house and we put in $200 worth of oil in the tank and it was bone dry in less than an hour. I could have used this new oil heater back then. But more importantly, I could use it now.

    1. Oh, you are so lucky! I've always wanted to live in a Victorian home. They are so beautiful and yes, they are haunted, but to live in one would be a dream. The place you were at sounded like it had a lot going on! I lived in a house many years ago and that place was haunted as well. I still think about that house sometimes and I've always wanted to know what happened there are who's spirits were lurking in the place. As for the heater, we have not had any issues with the fuse blowing at all. It does a marvelous job and it's surprisingly light weight! It's easy to move from one room to another and it warms up the room very fast! It's a heck of a lot better than the older models!

    1. It is great that they are updating and improving a lot of things. Especially heaters because the older models aren't as safe as we once thought they were and these models help keep everyone not only warm, but safe too.

  14. We have the older version of this heater and it is still going strong maybe 15 years after we bought them. I like how it isnt so hot that it burns and also that it is animal friendly (and people) in that if it is knocked over it wont burn anything. I ould love the remote!

    1. It is a lot safer than the older models, especially when there are animals or kids around. My kids have touched the heater a few times and it never burned them which is a good thing!

  19. I know that we are getting into the warmer months, but I had to read about this. It was so cold here this winter and not being able to afford to crank up the heat, I froze my butt off! Love everything you said about it. Wish I knew what kind of effect it had on your electric bill. My hubby always says these things suck up the electricity.

    1. When it comes to the oil heaters, it tends to work a lot better than the standard heaters. The oil heats up quick which heats the room a lot faster and it does stay warm for quite a long time as well. I love the oil heater a lot!
