Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldschooler Exactly what we needed!
My wife and I live in a house that was built in the 70's and never had a central unit installed. For years we've ran multiple 120v heaters in various places throughout the house (massive fire hazard I know!). On a recommendation from a family member I checked this heater out and am VERY glad I did. It came fully assembled in the box, all I had to do was plug it in. After paying an electrician $125 to wire a 240v plug in my living room, it was ready to go. I've now spent a total of $425 and my house (1400sq ft) is a comfortable 70 degrees with the new heater set just below the middle of it's dial. It cuts on and off with a decent degree of frequency and seems to be vastly more energy efficient than my previous heating arrangement (not to mention way safer!). Compared to the $8k I would need to have a panel upgrade and a brand new HVAC installation, $425 is pretty sweet to have this quality of heat in my home. If you are thinking to use this to heat a workshop or garage, I would assume you'll be very pleased indeed as it's currently heating my house just fine as I write this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NCGirl Just what I wanted!
We added a beautiful sun room to the back of our house, even had a cooling/heating unit installed in the wall as we wanted to use the room year round. But guess what? The expensive heater took forever to heat the room, and never did heat it completely. Plus it was really LOUD. So, I started investigating online as to what would be the best type of heater for a cold room that is ALL windows and was directed to this unit. Convection heating was recommended, which is what this unit is. And boy, does it work! Even on the coldest mornings, it takes an hour or two to heat the room, but it works great, the room is toasty warm and stays that way all day long. This isn't aesthetically pleasing, but it does exactly what I wanted it to do. LOVE IT! (It does require a dedicated 240 outlet, which we already had.) Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catmandu The Five Star rating says it all.
First, let me state I live on San Francisco's East Bay. Winters here are most mild compared to the Northeast from wench I came. My workshop here in California was previously a 3-car garage with a 12' ceiling. The two 120amp space heaters were not doing a good job of heating the entire space; I had to place them but a few feet away from my work area for any benefit. After converting the circuit breaker box to 240amp it raised the temperature in the entire shop 10 degrees in an hour. Only downside I can expect is how much my electric bill will increase now that I've doubled the output. A small price to pay for being able to work in comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vinmar Why change something that works so well
I've had one of these heating my 24' x 30' garage for over 15 years now and it is still going strong. The garage is under the house and insulated. On the coldest days, 10 degrees or so, the garage is about 45 degree's and this heater will warm it easily to over 60 in little over an hour. For me that is a comfortable temp to work in. Of course on warmer days or letting it run longer it will get much warmer and it does keep up quite well not running continuously. All I do for maintenance is blow it out with the air gun on occasion. I'm glad to see these are still available all too often you find something that works right and they stop making it. If I ever need to replace mine I will buy this same one again no question.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Panomono Keeps up even when below zero
I use this in my walk-out basement. The walk-out area is actually an uninsulated 9' garage door and a door with a dog door in it. The dog door flap lets in a considerable amount of cold air, little more than just a 18"x30" hole cut in the door.
This little heater does a great job heating up the basement, approx. 450 sq ft to 63-69 degrees quickly. Outside temps will be below zero, the basement stays a constant 45-50 in the winter and this heater with the temp nob turned to about the 10:00 position heats up to 63 degrees in 30-45 minutes.
My basement thermometer is behind the heater and about 8' away, it is getting no direct heat. The t-stat on the heater works perfectly, I am sure it would heat the basement more but I have no need to since I use it as a work area.
I have had the heater for 2 winter seasons now, it routinely gets below zero and this unit keeps up no problem.
It is a good buy, money well spent. I have mine mounted on the ceiling and I angle it towards the floor and the garage door.
