The DR-968 warms up a space quickly thanks to its dual PTC and quartz infrared element. However, this space heater is best for small to medium room, not large rooms as advertised.

Dr. Infrared Heater’s DR-968 is a hefty space heater that comes with great features that’ll save you more energy without compromising comfort! The DR-968 features and auto-energy saving mode as well as advanced dual heating system for bigger savings on your monthly bill. DR-968 combines PTC and quartz infrared element to generate heat in large and small rooms alike. The brand promises that the DR-968 works quickly in terms of achieving the ideal temps within a room, while ensuring the highest safety standard.

The DR-968 also comes with useful features that we think anyone could maximize. These features include a 12-hour auto shut-off timer, high pressure-low noise blower, electronic thermostat, heavy-duty caster wheels and lifetime filters. Because of its square design, the DR-968 is perfect for households with kids and pets. It’s stable so there’s no fear of the space heater tipping over. There’s an OR remote control so you don’t have to adjust the settings manually. Using the DR-968, you can choose between 1000 watts or 1500 watts.

Now for the downsides, most customer complaints are focused on the inability of the DR-968 to heat larger rooms as advertised. Also, though it heats the room quickly, we doubt the brand’s claim that the DR-968 generates 60% of heat than other brands.
