The crisp cool air of fall is upon us, as well as those chilly nights. If I learned anything from the first winter in our new home, it is that some rooms will be toasty warm and others cool, either from the higher ceilings, or amount of windows and distance from the thermostat. I am not a fan of wasting energy and heightening our heating bill just to heat a room that is not as warm as those closer to the thermostat, so the Mojave Heater from Heat Storm seemed like the perfect addition to our home.
The day the heater arrived, we were having unseasonably high temperatures, so I didn’t get to test it out for a few days. Once we got back to “normal” (did I mention I hate the cold?), I was excited to test out the new heater.
Unwrapping the machine, I immediately noticed how lightweight and easy to carry with the built in handle it was. In fact, it weighs in at only 11 lbs! My 6 month old weighs more than that! There is also a great little door on the side to hide the cord when not in use, and when it is in use, it has a handy small hole for the cord to come through. I am a huge fan of this feature because one of my pet peeves is when we have items like this stored in the closet for the summer and cords are all tangled and unruly.
I was happy to find that the heater came with a remote control (nothing like being cozy on the couch and having to get up to turn the heat up or down), and that the remote came with the two batteries necessary to operate the remote. Too often I get something in the mail that requires batteries, and low and behold when I look in the battery drawer we are all out of that particular size, thus requiring an extra trip to the store. (There are no “quick trips” to the store any more with a two year old and a 6 month old… )
After inserting the batteries in the remote, and taking the cord out of the storage compartment, I plugged the heater in and powered it on. The infrared heating unit glowed an amber red and immediately began heating up the room. It only took a few minutes to feel a significant increase in temperature and get that toasty feeling back in my toes.
The unit also came with a scent pack, which you can use if you choose to. Since it reminded me of fall with the crisp apple/cinnamon smell, I decided to give it a try. The room filled with a wonderful warm scent as if I had been burning a candle for hours, and added even more to the experience.
The heat from the Mojave is even more comfortable because of the heat exchanger in the machine.
Its heat exchanger combines with the humidity in the room to provide soft, moist, safe heat without reducing oxygen or humidity.
The machine runs quietly and efficiently, and has a lot of power packed into the small unit. I love its portability, it is so easy to move from room to room. This is something that would be great for an office if you work in a space that keeps the cool air pumping, as well as any room in the house that never heats up enough for you. It’s great for open areas like our family room, which has floor to ceiling windows and high ceilings. Our dogs even love to lay near the unit and stay cozy and warm.
In addition to the heat exchanger, Mojave is also unique in its energy efficiency and safety features. Energy efficiency is a goal of Heat Storm, and their heaters automate how much energy should be used based on ambient temperature. Their smart technology tells the machine when to operate on full power and when to use half power. This technology helps keep down energy spikes, and helps keep your electric bill down.
Finally, let’s talk safety. I have had to use a space heater on occasion in one of the kids rooms, and I can tell you that those nights were sleepless for me. I was always concerned that it would overheat, or catch fire. After learning about the structure of the heat chamber in the Heat Storm products, I feel much more confident in the safety of their products. The heating elements are not directly exposed to lint or any other materials, as the carbon fiber elements are enclosed in a quartz tube, and then those quartz tubes are inside of a steel chamber.
Forget about your old space heater, the Mojave Heat Storm Quartz Infrared heater is all you need! Heat Storm also has many other amazing products, like a wall heater and outdoor heat lamps, as well as other portable models. When we get around to renovating our outdoor area, I will be stopping back to purchase some of the outdoor products so that we can enjoy our outdoor space on these cool, crisp nights even more!
