    On next Monday 12 Oct This is by far the best leccy heater I have found -Mine works to within a couple of degrees between on and off unlike most that work on a plus / minus 5 degrees IE boiling to cold before it turns back on --This is digital temp sensing and works (y)Set at 20 and will go off at 21 and back on at 19 (y)

    3rd line down in the features.
    Presumably just turn off the heating elements.

    Features
    • With LCD display and remote control
    • Compact, mobile electric heater with 2 power settings (1000/2000W) for quick, comfortable heat
    • Optional 90° oscillation for optimal heat distribution and practical cool setting for use as a fan

    I assume you just set it running without any heat 'element' on, as you can with other similar types of heaters.

    It is in the description on that page, but it is not in the instructions. And everything seems to be automated to heat to temperature you set. there does not seem to be a manual mode. The one on sale today had a difference reference number to the one linked to above - looks identical but obviously isn't. Ah well, never mind. I will still keep it I expect.

    Our similar (but not the same) fan heater packed in whilst on holiday in Germany. :(

    The thing I liked about it was the auto cut off safety switch, if it was knocked over, so, we have gone for the Silvercrest one today, and it is a far superior heater, and also has the safety cut out device. (y)

    Cheers,

    Jock. :)
