The VH2 full room heater is not your average space heater. With Vornado\x92s Vortex Heat 2 Heater you get the signature Vortex energy efficient technology that evenly heats the entire room at an affordable price! This is unlike most space heaters that heat the space directly in front of the unit with the heat immediately rising to the ceiling. This whole room heater has a simple to use turn-dial thermostatic temperature control knob. Simply heat the room to a comfortable level and then turn the dial back until the heater shuts off. The Vortex Heater will then maintain that temperature within 3 to 4 degrees. This household heater is whisper-quiet and has advanced safety features to provide worry-free use. Energy Efficient Heater Vornado Energy Efficient Room Heaters are different from traditional space heaters. Vornado portable space heaters are more energy efficient thanks to unique vortex action which disburse heat evenly throughout the room. This more efficient movement of air saves energy, allowing the Vornado electric heater to warm an entire room in less time! Most space heaters heat the space directly in front of the heater leaving the rest of the room cold, which contributes to running heaters longer and at higher temperatures and using more energy. This is why the Vornado room heater is the most energy efficient electric heater. With a Vornado, there are no \x93blind spots\x94 in the circulation of warm air, because the air is constantly being heated and re-circulated. Unlike conventional air heaters Vornado makes sure that every bit of heat energy it generates is used well. The most efficient electric heater is available at Vornado.com. Having been experts in the business of air circulation and ventilation for the past five decades, Vornado\x92s unique set of air heating technological advancements is backed by advanced research in the physics of airflow. Vornado energy efficient heaters use the one-of-a-kind Vortex air flow system. This creates efficient air movement that bends air similar to the way the wind flows naturally. Efficiently heating and circulate air throughout the room\x92s area.
"Leaders in air flow technology." Beyond a marketing message- this statement defines Vornado's past, and charts the course for the company's future. The Vornado story begins with an inventor's vision to improve aircraft design in the early 1920's. Ralph K. Odor began to experiment with unique aerodynamics that increased the efficiency and performance of standard propeller planes. After many patents and highly successful prototypes, Ralph realized that his findings could change the inefficient electric fan designs that dominated the industry at the time. Ralph met O.A. Sutton, an entrepreneur from Wichita, Kansas and refined his concept for a new "air circulator." Initial plans to build the new "Vornado" fans were delayed by the complete focus of manufacturing resources needed to support World War II.
As the war drew to a close in the mid to late 1940's, the O.A. Sutton Company produced the first Vornado fans. These fans were well received, differentiated from other brands with their unmatched power and unwavering performance. The early "Vornados" served as the foundation for the company's reputation for innovation, product performance and durability.
In the years following the Second World War, air conditioning became increasingly accessible to the average American. Many believed "fans" were destined to move from living rooms to museum display cases - a relic of a bygone era. This would not be the case, as it was made clear throughout the decades that any climate control system could be supplemented and improved with the use of high performance fans or heaters. After a generation full of innovations, Vornado was about to completely reestablish customers' expectation of what a "fan" could do. Like the jet engine following the propeller, "fans" were destined to be promoted to a new level of performance.
In 1989, a new Vornado company was founded in Andover, Kansas - a suburb of Wichita, known as a worldwide hub for aviation design and manufacturing. Inspired by the advanced propeller and jet engine designs that were common products of the community, Vornado engineers created the first "whole room circulator"- taking the traditional fan beyond its previous limitations. These "circulators" benchmarked the successful design behind the Vornados of the 1940's and improved upon it- adding leading edge design, engineering and materials to the equation - with truly remarkable results. Vornado's unparalleled performance can be traced to its signature vortex action; the result of four proprietary components found only within Vornado technology. Initially applied to air circulators and heaters, Vortex Action allowed for Vornado products to affect not just the air around the unit like traditional fans and heaters, but to evenly distribute all of the air throughout an entire room. The effectiveness of these first products propelled the new Vornado back into the position as a leader in air comfort products.
Extensive research and development demonstrated that "Vortex Action" could dramatically impact the performance of other products beyond air circulators and heaters. The same principles that create even distribution of air and temperature are the drivers behind the company's newest offerings. Vortex action elevates a Vornado Humidifier's ability to evenly distribute moisture levels throughout a room. Because air cannot be filtered unless it is first moved, Vortex action makes Vornado's Whole Room Air Purifiers uniquely effective.
The same revolutionary thinking that created a superior fan has been poured into every aspect of Vornado's offerings today. Safer. Quieter. More intuitive. More effective. These aren't just goals for each new Vornado product, these are requirements. Vornado has demonstrated leadership in the past, and Vornado understands that leadership can only be maintained by relentless innovation. Expect more from Vornado.
