[Costco] Mill Oil Premium 1500W Heater with Wi-Fi - Hot Heater of a Deal

Was $179.99 in the Hot Buys section, but now showing $84.97.

Might be a price error as the prices for the other two models are showing $129.99 for 1000 watts (no wifi) and $89.97 for 1500 watts (no wifi).

Looks to be retailing from Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and Home Depot in the US for $180 USD.

I’ve had no issues with it. The one without the WiFi is really difficult to use if you want to have it on for particular hours. But the WiFi one is a charm. Takes a bit of time to setup your schedule in the App. But once it is set you never have to touch it again.

I have the mill 1000w 400/600/1000w oil filled which was the only temp/digital 400w oil filled I could find. Its excellent. Its not smart wifi but it doesn't need to be. You have to calibrate thermostat for room size for accuracy or else it would stop heating too quickly as its very zone based. I wager that was something some reviewers never figured out. Its been an excellent oil filed heater.

We use 2 oil filled heaters in our 34 foot RV and love them.

We use 2 heaters, one at each end, so the heat is constant and even throughout the RV. Oil filled heaters are silent as they have no fan. They are slow to heat up but once up to the desired heat setting ...they are also slow to cool down ... as compared to fan forced heaters which we found to be noisy.

They are large as compared to a fan forced heater but their quietness and even heat makes them worthwhile.

Getting the 1500 watt ones that have 3 wattage settings of 600, 900 and 1500 allows you to set them at 600 watts so there is not as much load put on the circuit. This assumes you have each heater on a separate circuit breaker. I found that at 1500 watts the heater cord would get too warm for my liking. At 600 watts the heater cord is not warm at all.

We prefer the non electronic control ones as you can set them for a certain heat setting and wattage setting AND they ..being manual.. will retain those settings after a power failure. We found the electronic control ones we tried would forget the settings if the power failed...

You can program this thing without the app right? Seems like the quality of connection may be questionable.

Otherwise it seems like a great deal. Hopefully the app will be supported for a long time. The other oil filled heater we've had for 20 years.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Oil filled definitely could be the most cost effective if you have time of use electric rates or use solar, because it acts like a thermal battery. You could have it turn off during the two hours of peak time and turn back on after.
