Honeywell Surround Heat™ Heater Product Reviews
Model Number: HZ-0360
Dimensions: 9.76 x 8.98 x 12.40
Warranty: 3 year limited warranty
Don't count on the warranty if unit fails!
If you want a heater that will keep a room a constant temperature, I would recommend an oil filled heater. But if you want a sometimes heater that will circulate heat in a shorter period of time, a heater with a fan might be a better choice. But maybe not this one.
As with all heaters with a fan, this one made noise. But the more inexpensive the construction, the more noise they make. And this one, although not real loud, was not real quiet either. Until it failed. Then it was real noisy. Which meant it was warranty time. Or lack of warranty time.
The box brags of a 3 year warranty. Don't be misled. What the box gives, the fine print takes away. In order to utilize the warranty, one has to pay to ship unit back to manufacturer. Then wait to have it shipped back. And here is the kicker, to get it shipped back one has to pay an additional $10 shipping and handling. In the end, when your unit proves defective (And based on reviews, that happens frequently.) you have to pay half the price of the heater again to have it replaced/repaired.
I give the unit 2 stars because, when it worked, it was functional. But the so called warranty gets a giant goose egg from me. If something fails during the warranty period, a company should back the product, with apologies. They should not be adding insult to injury by charging customers to cover their product's failings.
Worked great for the first 3 months that I used it. Now it turns on for about 5-10 minutes and shuts itself off. I'm rather disappointed with this particular product. I have another heater that I used in my sons bedroom that has been fantastic for the last two years. I thought that I was buying a more advanced version of it, but I guess I shouldn't have spent the extra money and stayed with the cheaper model.
Previouse product of same type worked for years. this one did not work as well -- heating unite gave out just over one year.
Good product, i got it from Wal-Mart.
Heater Unit - Not Turning On Anymore
I've had this Honeywell 360 degrees Surround Heater for about a year and it worked quite well. Didn't have a problem until today, where a towel fell on it, while I was out of the room. When I came back, I saw the heater covered and of course, it automatically turned off, but now it won't turn back on. I unplugged it and the "on" light turns on, but nothing else happens.
If it gets a little dust in it, it shuts off. If I vacuum it out it works again. It has been a good heater for the most part. It is just very sensitive to the dust.
I could not be happier with this unit - heats like a dream, and has definitely kept the winter freeze at bay. Better than anticipated!
Could be warmer.
Worked great for 14 months
This heater worked great. Warmed up the bedroom in the evenings and the mornings so we didn't have to heat the entire house.
But 14 months after purchase it has suddenly stopped working, and don't know why. Light comes on but fan does not turn.
the settings nob on the heater is broken i can only have it on one setting now. and when u have the heat on a low setting it turns on for a second then turns back off. so i have to turn it off and on just to keep the room at a steady temperature.
Got my moneys worth!
I love this product! There is alot in that 12". It makes sense to blow heat from all directions.
I can't afford natural gas,so space heaters used in several rooms. i plan to replace 3 more heaters. Because I am so impressed with this product.
360 Surround heat
It heats well, but its not that strong of a heater. It leaves a small room, slightly warm, but not warm enough. We'll keep it for now. Being that this product is "Honeywell" i did expect a little more quality.
Too early to tell
Not real impressed yet with the coverage area of heater but have only used it a few weeks now. Seems to be affective in small kitchen area to help take chill out but not real affective in a larger living room but comments with the heated did indicate additional heaters may be needed. Not as affective as my previous heater but IS safer to use. the Honeywell name influenced my decision to buy.
Like it but knob keeps breaking
This is the second one of these heaters that I have had. I like it a lot, it works great, is small and convenient. However- both have gotten a broken knob within a year of medium use. I think it is a defect, and I will be returning it for the second time.
SOMETHING IS MESSED UP
need a new one
my heater worked for a month and did great but now it won't work at all.
Nice Heater-Great Price
I needed an economical heater to add supplemental heat to a room in my house. I saw this one and it did the trick. Easy to operate and quickly warms up not only the one room, but another room as well.
360 Surround Heat
Nice, compact, easy to use space heater. A little loud; but for its size it effectively moves air and distributes warmth. Seems solidly constructed.
I just purchased the unit , it turns of aftyer 2 min of run time . i,m in the process of contacting customer service . I hope that evperiance is better that the use of this space heater
was a nice heaterHeater worked great heated whole room fast put off lots of warmth but stopped working after month of use
Small but effective
Keeps me warm at a low cost!
Very disappointed; premature failure
For 12.5 years I slept wtih a small, white fan on my nightstand for white noise. After an unfortunate accident involving gravity, it had to be replaced. I came upon your Honeywell product that had the added benefit of having a heat option. Perfect!
Well, after less than 5 months of running, it has started creating an erratic, cyclical rattle, rendering it useless as a sleep aid. The fan/heater sat on my nightstand and never moved. I attempted to see if it was unlevel or perhaps had something pulled into it but that does not appear to be the case. It just started to fail in the middle of the night.
While I got it on sale at the end of the short cold season here in Florida, it is no less disappointing that it turned out to be unreliable and cheap; not what I expected from the Honeywell name.
The rattle is in the very base of the device and oscillates. If I gently turn the fan in my hands, it sounds as if something has come loose of its moorings. I would like to know what my warranty claim options are as I no longer have the box or receipt. Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

I am very satisfied with our honeywell heaters they are energy efficient and very safe.
stopped working after maybe a month
While this heater was working it worked good and i was really dissappointed when it just stopped working not sure why.
I bought this product to use in my bed room during the winter to reduce my gas bill. Love the on/off option to help keep the temperature in the room consistent. Wish the cord retracted.
I bought the heater to help keep the garage warmer. To my suprise this little heater completely out performed to my expectations. I have an oversized 1 car garage and the 360 took the chill out of the air and kept the garage very comfortable. I even turned the heat setting to low.
Great product. I willl surely tell others about the performance.
Thank you for this product,
Worked Well...for a while
The 360 Surround Heat Heater worked very well for our small home for about a year and a half, when it began to just not turn on when switched to the on position. I'm not sure if that is because it needs a proper cleaning on the inside but it is not possible to clean the inside as it is not meant to be disassembled (per the manual). My husband would use the heater for several hours at a time, so I thought maybe it was just overheating, but even after letting it cool off, it would turn on only for a few minutes and then return to its non-working status.
Heat when you need it....
I love this device. It heats the room rather quickly and it allows you to set the heater at a preferred level. The only issue I have is that you can hear the heater's fan blowing if the house is quiet.
So far so Good!
I just bought this little heater, and so far, so good! It does fantastic in my bathroom on cold nights!!!
Heater for Lg. Bathroom
Pro-Unit is compact, inexpensive, and has a fan to distribute the heat generated. Does not get very hot to the touch and doesn't overheat objects close by.
Con-Fan is fairly noisy. On a cold (Florida) night the unit runs continuously to maintain room temperature.
I like the product and its keep my room.
Great for drafts.
This is heater is great for small drafty rooms. The circular heating motion distributes heat evenly. I especially like the auto-shut off feature in case it is accidentlly knocked over. It's controls are easy to use and adjustable. It's not as quiet as the box says but it won't keep you awake at night. I would recommend this heater for small/mid-sized rooms.
The down side is that it stopped working after only one month of use.
love the little guy, Only...
I love the little heater, only i should say I DID love it up until it simply stopped working after only 24 days of use. I tried all the troubleshooting tips and searched the manual to see if I did something to cause it. as far as I know, I haven't abused it in the least. I simply use it what its for. to heat our small 300-600 sq ft. apartment. if it cant perform that task over a longer period of time than 24 days than what the heck is it used for? anyways BESIDES my little rant. It kept even our drafty apartment warm in the middle of winter even in subzero temps. it was a nice steady heat that wasn't harsh, And it saved us LOADS on our electricity bill, for one month at least. The built in wall unit heaters in our place jumped our bill up to two times more than we were paying while running this little honeywell surround heater. I just wish there was a way to fix it without having to pay the same price as going to the store for a new one. I would, but I'm afraid it will just stop working again. so much for a three year warrantee, how 'bout a GAURANTEE? id go for that!
1 of the 2 work well
I bought two of your space heaters for my apartment. I was very satisfied with them until one of them recently stopped working. the lights work and you can still feel it making heat but the fan broke. I saw it says I have a 3 year factory warranty. I'm hoping it can be fixed or replaced so I won't have to buy another. It was $35 and it only lasted a month. Thanks for listening.
HZ-0360 surround heat
just purchased this to use in bathroom as we have 2 outside walls & it gets cold. I purchased this brand on the advice of my daughter and looking at several different brands.
Have been very satisifed so far. Thanks.
HZ-0360 surround heat
just purchased this to use in bathroom as we have 2 outside walls & my husband gets cold easily. I am very satisfied with this product (my duaghter helped me select this one over several other brands). Will buy this brand in the future.
hello my heater has broken after 3 months please assist.
small but works well
I was surprised how small this heater was when I opened the box ...but it has done the job. We did not have a heater in our bathroom which is an approximately 7 x 10 sq/ft room ... the heater exceeded our expections of what we needed. I would highly recommend this product for small areas.
I Love! Love! Love! my heater. I am using it in my bedroom which was a garage with a cement floor. It heats the room beautifully. I would recommend the heater to anyone.
Bought product and used it for less than a week. Fan and heater have stopped working. Have followed all instructions in product brochure. Would like replacement with another heater of approximately same value.
Great little heater
I live on the very N.W. tip of Oregon. Just 11 miles South of Astoria.
I live in a 28 foot Airstream trailer and of coarse it is raining and the wind is blowing. This is the only heating sourse I am using now.
I recomend this unit highly.
Good for what it does
Small room heater that will bring the temperature up, it uses a small built in fan and has two heat settings. It has no remote comtrol , but it does shut off when a themostat wheel setting id reached. No numbers on the whell, it is hit or miss until you use it a few times.
Fan is somewhat loud.
I love my surround heat heater. I bought 4 of them. It's perfect for us. It warms up my bedrooms quickly.
broke in couple months
i never had any problem with any of your products before,until this year went to plug the said heater and it quit giving off any heat,first time i used
great value for the price
360 Surround Heat
Great for small/medium rooms.
Work excellent but doesnt lost long...
It just stopped worknig
We just started using this heater in october of this year. It stopped working last night.
ON ANY COLD NIGHT I CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON MY HONEYWELL HEATER. I MOSTLY USE IT AT WORK BECAUSE WE CANNOT CONTROL OUR TEMPERATURE HERE. IT WARMS UP THE WHOLE ROOM. ALL MY COWORKERS LOVE IT.
i love this heater i am so happy i purchased this one
Best Heater Ever
I Love this heater it is the best I have ever use in the last few hour.
Warm Fan ManI like that this product puts out heat all the way around not just where you sit it. Great Product!!!!
its ok at firsti have it for not even a year and its not even working anymore, it did at first. and i stored it in my closet safe and clear from any damage. and now i turn it on. it doesnt work
Nice single room heater
Only used it twice and, after the initial smell from start up releases in the air, the heater was nice and comfy for a 12' x 12' room. It heated quickly and the noise is not that noticeable, minimal, such as that of a fan. Don't know the longevity of this item as it is my first. Otherwise, its nice. It has such a small profile for its output too.
round heateronly owned it a few hours and have run it on low heat since i got it. doing all right so far.
Not SureI bought 2 because of the price. After 3 month one I bought started not working right. Other then that, while it worked it did a good job heating my small bedroom during the night. The second one I bought is still working and doing fine so far I bought them a week or two apart.
360 Surround HeaterI like the heater because it small and throw out the heat real well.
Not worth the moneyThis heater broke after 2 months. It just stopped working.
heaterso far, it is the best choice for my money as well as doing the job of a much larger heater
We bought this item because we heat our home with a wood burning stove and the back part of the house (our bedroom) gets pretty chilly at night, we normally don't mind but we now have a newborn and need to keep it cozy. So far so good! I love the feature that when it tips or is lifted (becuase we have 2 other little ones) it automatically shuts off. We have been using this item for almost 3 weeks now.
SMALL BUT MIGHTY
WE HAD ONE OF THESE BEFORE. IT LASTED ALMOST 3 YRS. iT MAY BE SMALL BUT IT GIVES OFF AS MUCH HEAT AS A LARGER UNIT. THE FAN IS VERY POWERFUL TOO. WE USE IT IN OUR BATHROOM EVEN THOUGH IT SAYS NOT TO. HEATS UP THE ROOM IN 5 MINS., JUST LONG ENOUGH TO TAKE A SHOWER. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
I'm coldI bought this heater 16 days ago and absolutely loved it. Now that it wont work though, I now think it was a waste of money. And then to come to this website and click on "customer care" and get no help....unsatisfied customer!!!!!
FeedbackSeems like a very good product.
hz-0360love the open 360 degree area of heated air
360 surround heaterWorks very well. Heats better than my central heat in the house and I love the fact it will automatically shut off if moved or knocked over.
surround heatergood heater for small room
Good HeaterGood little heater. Saves us from using base board heater in appartment and is pretty efficient. A bit difficult to control heat consistently.
New HeaterSo far our new heater works great.
Heater no longer works?????I have only had this heater for a couple of months and it is not longer working. The light shows there is electricity to it the heater and blower are not working..........I wasted $30.00 on something that did not even make it throught the winter months!
NICE HEATERIT IS COMPACT,LIGHT WEIGHT, AND EASY TO USE.
comsumerproduct is working great thank you
good productgood product lots of heat
Small UnitIt is very small and will warm up to about 100 square feet only. Worked out of the box, so far so good.
360 Surround HeaterA great protable heater for all around air and heat distribution. Good warranty with 3 years instead of 1 year. We hope to get many years of use during our winter seasons. Thank you.
I have a 15x15 sized room and this heater totally rocks on the high setting. Then i set it to low and use the therostate to keep the room warm at hopfully a cheep price. I love it and i got payed $100 for writing this..just kidding
Good HeaterWarms more than just the medium sized room that it states on the box. Perfect for some extra warmth during this cold weather.
email@example.comI haven't really tested it out. but it started good and seems to work.
I think that the heater had provide enough heat for a small. When the house is in the low 60's, this heater bring rises the tempaerature at 73 to 74. I love the 360 degree surround heat to provide more heat, plus safety feature to shut off when it is tip over and overheated. I am enjoying it and recommend this heater over the conventional heater. It even cost less than the conventional heater.
MISSINGHOW COME INFORMATIONS(REGISTRATION CARD) NOT IN BOX ?
MrSo far it has worked very well
360 degree heater
Heats my small room great.
This unit replaces an older model and, so far, exceeds expectations.
Warm and CozyMet all of me and my girlfriends expectation when we purchased it at Wal-Mart one windy winter night. We specifically liked the 360 SafetyTIP feature and Thermostat Control.
Great ProducThis unit saved us on a night when we didn't have firewood and our heater was out. Warmed up our entire bedroom and attached bath, within a hour.
suround heaterheats really great a med size room very comfortable
hivery small and easy to store and it heats up very nice
Very goodI use it in my bathroom and it works great for that small place
Honeywell heaterI wish that it just heated a little more then it does. But the room I am trying to heat may be to large. But overall the safety features and and other things about the product I do like very much. I am not totally dissatisfied.
Honeywell HeaterIt works great it really warms the whole room. Very happy with it.
Honeywell HeaterI love this heater for my personal use.
GOODI THINK ITS GOING TO BE GOOD HEATER
i like iti really like it
2 heatersso far they work ok.
great qualitysimple, quick heat, and safe when it shuts off by being tipped over. This is my Rnd heat while my first lasted 7 years.
Great Heat!As the weather is getting colder, we recently found out the house we just started renting from has no heater! I have a 4 year old and a 5 month old so I really needed something cheap that could warm up my babies! I finally found something that fit my needs. Your 360 surround heater! I love how it automatically turns off when my oldest happens to be playing hide and seek and knocks it over from time to time...Thank you for your awesome products!!
heat rating?this heater does ok in my bedroom but i wish there was some information regarding BTU's on this unit
Satisfied CustomerI have a small bedroom and needed a heater to knock the chill off in the winter. I purchased this heater (HZ-0360) because of the affordable price and small size. I also love the fact that it doesn't give off the smell of something burning like many other heaters.
