The heater differentiates itself from the other space heaters by the ‘vortex energy efficient technology’ that warms up the room in minutes by circulating the warm air rapidly.

The conventional heaters turns off when they reach the set temperature and then turns on after a while, so the room gets cold and then warm again. This cycle is not experienced in the DVTH thanks to the climate control feature.

Good Housekeeping rated the DVTH as the “Best Overall.” The safety features include an auto-safety shut down, the heat element is non- glowing, the body does not heat up and for the sake of children, the grill spacing is very less.
