Answer: 
Quite possibly. Most home wiring is a standard 120v. A 240v plug will be a combination of two 120v wires attached to two separate 120v breakers. You won't need a whole house rewiring, but you will need a 240v plug installed. A competent local electrician should be able to give you some good options depending on the design of your home and where you desire the plug to be located.

Answer: 
Dillon, this is a 240 volt heater with a NEMA 6-20P plug installed. You would need a 240 volt recepticle to match the plug. You may have to run a circuit from your panel if you do not already have that available in the area you want to use the heater

Answer: 
Yes. I would contact a local licensed electrician to look at your breaker box. He can tell right away what kind of power you have that is available. He can quote you on running a new dedicated line for your heater.

Answer: 
you should hire electrician to run a dedicated wire using 240 volts 20 amps breaker to the new outlet for this particular 6-20P type outlet. Depending the distance and phase from your breaker box to the outlet, you may need to get different size of wire between #14 to #12 and sometime #10 may be needed.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Best Heater I've ever Used. Because I have forced Hot air, I did not want sawdust getting into the return in my basement woodshop. Having no heat but plenty of 240 volt receptacles on various circuits. - I mounted this heater on a wall. My shop is approx 500 sq feet and within 15 minutes it is nice and warm. - It runs quiet and the thermostat works well. - Yes, it's a little pricey, but worth every penny. Highly Recommend. September 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This heater does heat very well. This heater does keeps me warm and has a great temperature control March 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST HEATER I HAVE EVER BOUGHT THIS HEATER PLACED IN KITCHEN ON FLOOR COVERS ENTIRE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM OF ONE BED ROOM TRAILER. THAT TOOK 3 HEATERS LAST YEAR December 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrating and a little content It heats the room it was bought to heat... very nicely October 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 27, 2014
