This space heater offers sun-like warmth in small to medium spaces. It's not the quietest space heater we've tested but it's an all-around great performer.

Holmes’ tower space heater features a chunky, squat design as well as two heat modes that promise to provide “sun-like” heat. This device has several useful features that we think you’d maximize, including the auto shut off feature, thermostat control, and tip-over protection.

Its dual heat modes allow you to warm up larger rooms while the brand’s patented MaxFlow fan system improves airflow while quickly dispersing warm air without causing a draft. Holmes’ tower space heater also features two quartz elements that glow a hypnotizing red, alerting users that the front grill is hot to the touch. The thermostat setting lets you adjust the air temps to your desired level.

The front grille gets hot at times, hence, it’s not safe to use in the kid’s bedroom, the Holmes’ tower space heater also features an anti-tip over design so it won’t get knocked over accidentally. The auto shut off feature ensures that the device will not overheat so it’s safe to use for an extended period. We also love the adjustable power to save on energy. You can opt for the 750 watts for smaller rooms and 1500 watts to warm up a large bedroom within minutes. It’s not the quietest space heater we’ve tested so this might not be the best choice for the nursery. Also, some users say their models generated a queer burning smell. Thankfully, Holmes offers a six year warranty on their heaters.
