Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Quiet and handles 1875 Watts of Resistive Heat
I had a lllWoods indoor timer but is was noisy, so I purchased this Brinks Indoor Heavy Duty Analog Timer and I am very pleased with it in every way. It is completely quiet, keeps good time, handles a 3-prong plug, is super easy to program and according to the label can handle 1875 Watts of resistive heat - meaning a space heater. It will list a lower number for the tungsten rating, this refers to "lights" and is lower because when a light is turned on it can pull more volts. So if you want to use it for a space heater, the 1875 Watts is what matters; that information is not listed in the Home Depot specs but it is listed on the label on the Brinks timer itself. Also, the lllWoods timer got very "hot." This Brinks stays much, much cooler, which is reassuring when using indoors powering a space heater.

I bought four for lights when we went away on vacation. Only one of the four function properly- the others do not work. Spend a little extra and get a better one!

I had one that worked for a couple of weeks. Now it's toast. Cheap to start with and worthless now.
