Walmart fans are everywhere in your heater and can save you a lot of money on your utility bills.
That’s because our utility bills have skyrocketed this year.
One example is San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), which has warned millions of customers of a 100% rise in costs this month, blaming soaring natural gas prices.
But of course, this is just one company, and many more Americans could face much higher utility bills this winter.
That’s why there are people looking for alternatives. Walmart shoppers are flocking to its money-saving gadgets.
Walmart is now selling a Dreo brand electric space heater for just $44.99.
Normally $69.99, but currently on sale.
Walmart describes the product as a heater with four fans with adjustable speeds that can support an area of 200 square feet.
In addition, a “precision thermostat” is included, making it convenient to carry.
How much can I save?
But most importantly, it saves you money.
A 1,500W heater converts “powerful heat into more energy-saving ECO heat”.
On average, a heater of that wattage costs 20 cents an hour.
So 10 hours of use would cost you $2 a day, or about $60 a month.
The US Energy Administration expects heating costs to rise 28% to $931 this winter.
This equates to about $310 per month, leaving you with an opportunity to save up to $250.
Impressions of reviews
Dreo Space Heater reviews are mostly positive, with 4.8 out of 5 stars.
Different customers tout value for money.
One comment said:
“Reasonably priced,” he added.
Another user said: “This little heating unit does the job. It’s perfect for my small bedroom and I like the fact that it can be set on a timer or automatic temperature.”
However, one customer gave us a positive opinion, saying, “Eco was great.”
“I set it to 67, but realized I didn’t want it to stop running at 67. It used to be fine.
“Now I have to set 65 to 66, but I’m checking to see if it works correctly.
Space heaters have received over 3,000 reviews.
If you’re not 100% satisfied with your online order, Walmart offers up to 90 days for return or exchange on most items.
