Amish Heaters and Edenpure Heaters

Amish heaters are selling like hot cakes. But do they really help you save 50% on your heating bill? See the Fox news report what they found.

Amish heaters are actually built in China. Electric portable heaters will not save money versus heating with gas. You can go to the hardware store and buy a 1500 watt electric heater for about $20 that will do the same as the Amish heater. If you turn your house down to 50 degrees and just put the Amish heater in the room you are in, yes you will lower your heating bill. But you will also not be very comfortable in your home. Plus you have to be careful you don't turn the heat back to far and freeze a water pipe.

Maybe you can strap the heater to your back when you walk around the house. or not.... If you are looking to save on heating cost look at a quality installed 95% Efficient furnace or a heat pump system. You can easly save hundreds of $$ per year and even over $1000 depending on your current system. Plus you can take advantage of the $200 IRS tax credit for installing a new 95% furnace.
