The Dr. Heater Infrared heater heats rooms quickly by consuming minimal power. Working with 1500 watts, it offers automatic energy saving designs and sets the room temperature at a comfortable range by automatically setting the high and low temperature mode. The high-efficiency blower fan creates high volume of air, evenly spreading warm air while also staying relatively quiet. This heater offers great durability and should be able to run well up to 80,000 hours.


Using three heating modes, users can customize their temperature settings. It operates at 1000 watts on the lowest setting and up to 1500 watts at the higher end. The embedded thermostat ranges between 50 to 80 degrees. Because the heater uses efficient infrared energy, you’ll find fewer hot and cold spots in the room compared to ceramic or other heaters.

The IR remote appears to be a slight drawback of the heater. In order to use the remote, the heater must first be set to standby mode.


This heater is tested and certified by the Underwriters Laboratory USA, maintaining high standards of safety and security. All the heaters from Dr. Heater offer approximately 80,000 operating hours. The DR998 model features tip-over and overheating protection. For safety purposes, all heating elements are embedded inside the heater’s metal cabinet to decrease risk.

As a general safety precaution when using heaters, make sure to leave at least a foot or two of clearance between furniture, and never drape clothes or other flammable items on top of the heater.


Dr. Heater Infrared Portable Heater is a small powerhouse with impressive heating capabilities that heat areas up to 1,300 square feet. It can even be continuously run without being shut down for approximately two straight days. The look, design, and size of the heater make it well-suited for home use.

The heater offers a prominent design that may complement your existing interior design (or not) and offers great safety features. Note the Dr. Heater infrared portable heater blower operates at a noise level of 39 db. It can be a bit loud, but even after continuous operation over hours, it doesn’t get too warm.
