So, on my last electric bill, after all the little charges that are metered per kWh are added up, my electricity is 18.319 cents/kWh. So, that's 27.4785 cent/hour for me to run this, which is $6.59 per day, or $197.85 per month.

So yeah, $200/month if running 24/7 like fourcornerview suggested.

Even if you ran this 24 hours a day all month it wouldn't add $200 to your electric bill. Take your kW/hr energy cost (should be 10-15 cents) and multiply by 1.5 (1500W = 1.5kW) to figure out how much it costs to run this for an hour.

Great deal, OP.

All electrical resistance heater got the exact same efficiency.

If you sit at one place, get one that "shine" the heat at you. If you want even temperature in a room, get a radiator type that spread heat with convection.

From my research it is an infrared heater but it also has ceramic element to start heating the room upto the point the infrared part kicks in to full potential..
Lack of reviews made me skip this deal.
Do really need a efficient heater for warming up bedroom when the entire home heat is turned off

Yeah I believe it. Energy hogs...but any electric heater will be. Would/Do you really run the sucker 24/7 though? They aren't meant to be a replacement for a traditional furnace after all. I think more typical use is a few hours per day (or less) and they are fine for that. Still use a decent amount of energy, no question, but not $6 or $7 per day worth.

EDIT: Also, as usual, people tend to under-estimate their actual electricity cost. While you may be billed around 10 or 12 cents per kWh for the actual energy, all of the additional fees like your base delivery/customer fee (daily) plus don't forget taxes and all that jazz. So it's generally quite a bit higher. 18 or 19 cents is actually good...I'm closer to 24 cents per kWh "all-in" which is how it should be calculated.
