The Vornado story begins with an inventor’s vision to improve aircraft design in the early 1920’s. Ralph K. Odor began to experiment with unique aerodynamics that increased the efficiency and performance of standard propeller planes. After many patents and highly successful prototypes, Ralph realized that his findings could change the inefficient electric fan designs that dominated the industry at the time. Ralph met O.A. Sutton, an entrepreneur from Wichita, Kansas and refined his concept for a new “air circulator.” Initial plans to build the new “Vornado” fans were delayed by the complete focus of manufacturing resources needed to support World War II.

The 633B has a three-speed control, fully directable airflow and a limited 5-year warranty – although our customers tell us their circulators far out last 5 years!
Originally released in 1945, the Vornadofan challenged how a fan should look and function. With its unique combination of power, aerodynamics and style, the Vornadofan became a design icon that has inspired every Vornado air circulator since. With its metal design and authentic styling, the VFAN continues the Vornadofan legacy, using signature Vortex Action to circulate all the air in the room. The classic styling adapts perfectly to any setting and blends harmoniously with all decoration and color schemes. Made with high standards and the finest materials, the VFAN delivers unparalleled whole room air circulation – quality you’ve come to expect. Features include 3 speed settings, a full action pivot head for multi-directional airflow and a 5-year limited warranty from Vornado.
The VH2 full room heater is not your average space heater. With Vornado’s Vortex Heat® 2 Heater you get the signature Vortex energy efficient technology that evenly heats the entire room at an affordable price! This is unlike most space heaters that heat the space directly in front of the unit with the heat immediately rising to the ceiling. This whole room heater has a simple to use turn-dial thermostatic temperature control knob. Simply heat the room to a comfortable level and then turn the dial back until the heater shuts off. The Vortex Heater will then maintain that temperature within 3 to 4 degrees. This household heater is whisper-quiet and has advanced safety features to provide worry-free use. Energy Efficient Heater Vornado Energy Efficient Room Heaters are different from traditional space heaters. Vornado portable space heaters are more energy efficient thanks to unique vortex action which disburse heat evenly throughout the room. This more efficient movement of air saves energy, allowing the Vornado electric heater to warm an entire room in less time!
The DVTH heater is not your average space heater. Vornado’s DVTH was rated “BEST OVERALL” by Good Housekeeping! Vornado heaters are different from space heaters in that they use vortex energy efficient technology to fully circulate the warm air throughout the room in minutes. The DVTH has digital controls and uses automatic climate control which adjusts the heat output and fan speed higher or lower at all times to maintain the set temperature. This eliminates annoying hot and cold cycles where the heater shuts off allowing the room to cool and then turns back on to heat the room up again. This household heater has advanced safety features including: Automatic Safety Shutoff, non-glowing heat element, tight grill spacing and cool touch exterior to provide worry-free use.
