    Supposedly these heaters can cut your heating bill by as much as 50% and only add 1$ to your electic bill. They also claim to produce even healthy heat thoughtout the entire area.

    Figure the watts and how many hours a day they run, multiply the watts by your local electric cost to figure if they are cheaper than regular heat. Someone was gonna get one, but the salesman started figuring and how many square feet they had to heat and decided they needed 2 of them. Then that doubled the cost of having one to supplement the regular heat. It ended up to be kinda expensive.

    I've been using them this winter and have saved a ton on natural gas bill. Electric hasn't gone up at all!

    My fishing partner has 2 Eden Pures. They do work IF... your house is well insulated, and you have efficient windows in your house. If your house is not the best insulated and/or your windows are not very good, they won't help you much. On a cold day, put your hand against one of the walls inside your house that is an exterior wall. If you can feel the wall is colder than the room then the eden pure isn't going to help much. If your furnace can not warm the walls the eden pure isn't going to be able to keep the room warm.
