I purchased an iHeater in 2013. The power switch broke and instead of the company fixing it, they sent a new one to me. I told them I wasn't sure I could do this myself; I was assured it was "a very easy fix." After receiving the new power switch and changing it out, my iHeater did come on and immediately sparked and burned, rendering it useless. This company have VERY POOR customer service. My mother's iHeater's switch also broke off in about the same amount of time. What a rip off.
I purchased two iHeaters in Feb of 2011, a 1500 and a 1000. They are advertised to reduce your heating bill to pennies a day, which is a gross overstatement. The 1500 quit working this winter and of course, warranty out of date. Upon calling the company after several unanswered emails, I was told my only resolution was to ship at my expense the heater to their warehouse and that there wasn't anyone in my area that could service these heaters. Also, I would have to pay a service fee, all shipping fees and the full cost of fixing the heater. The gentleman was extremely rude and spoke very broken English.
BUYER BEWARE !!!
FALSE ADVERTISING! I agree with other posters regarding this appliance. It was advertised that this unit would cost merely "pennies a day", & would reduce my winter heating electric bill by 50%.
Truth of the matter is, it doubled my electric bill !!!
DO NOT PURCHASE ONE!
DO NOT BELIEVE THE ADVERTISING!
THIS IS A SCAM!
SAVE YOUR MONEY!
PASS THE WORD AROUND!
I would just like to take the time to say thanks to Top Ten Imports and the efforts that they have taken to improve the iHeater. I was having problems with the iHeater I purchased last year, I contacted customer service and shipped the heater back. They have since repaired my heater, and had it returned back to me in just over 24 hours, and it is working great.
I would recommend the iHeater over any other competitors models at this time because of how well they stand behind their product and warranty. thanks, Top Ten, keep up the good work.
I bought one of the iheaters for 379 dollars. It did not meet my expectations and I returned it within the 30 day return period for a refund via UPS. They did receive it as confirmed by UPS. but refuse to return my money. I have contacted everyone I could think of for assistance, even the attorney general in Michigan to no avail. I guess no cares that a retired individual trying to save some money ends up being ripped off. My advice to others is to NOT buy this peoduct.
