Rated 5 out of 5 by Designled Perfect Combination of Form and Function
Just received my AM09 Fan Heater in Black and Nickel
Unpacked and followed the clear instructions.
The fan looks perfect in my conservatory and fits in with my Stainless Steel and black leather decor.
I am impressed with the speed the AM09 heats or cools the area.
Looking forward to a hot summer to test its cooling function.
I intend to use it as secondary background heating in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stevec66 Big improvement over the already excellent AM04
Cooling: My guess is that setting 5 on the AM09 is about equivalent in noise and airflow as setting 1 on the AM04. The obvious advantage being that you can drop the AM09 down to an almost silent 1. Nothing like as powerful as the AM04 on 1, but the excellent design still delivers a barely audible gentle breeze over a good distance. Keep it on setting 2 and about 6 feet away from you and you’ll hardly notice it . . . . Until you turn it off!
I’m not sure how much of the noise reduction is down to the new fancy chamber – to me it seems to be more down to the fact that you can set a slower fan speed. Having said that, my only criticism of the AM04 was that its slowest fan speed was quite noisy and fierce, so it is a welcome improvement.
Heating: Even bigger improvements here. I suspect the diffused airflow will be an excellent addition for the winter. It seems to have a ‘soft start’, so you don’t get that blast of cool air when it first spins up. The AM04 is fine for heating up a room, but the airflow was never quite warm enough to stand in front of and ‘defrost’. The AM09 is in a different league. Much more air at a much higher temperature.
Overall, it is an excellent fan and a big improvement over the AM04.
