what size room will the broam 4000 watt unit service

Asked by: tom
This unit will work in a room up to 400 square feet (with 8’ ceilings). A basic calculation for determining the size heater you need is to take the square footage of the room and multiply by 10 to determine how many watts the heater should be.

16-13/32 in. x 20-19/64 in. 4,000-Watt High-Capacity Wall Heater in White is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Professionally installed with the 4,000 watt option in a large 300sf master bathroom, this heater... Professionally installed with the 4,000 watt option in a large 300sf master bathroom, this heater overheats causing the limit switch to shut it off and then it can't be restarted for 10-15 minutes until after it has cooled down. After installing the new limit switch that Broan sent which did not fix the problem, support then said "that's the way it is because the heater is only meant run for a few minutes to boost the temperature a few degrees". Now they tell me...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Heater, Bad Paint I purchased a Broan 198 heater about 2 years ago and installed it in a small room over my garage. The room is normally not heated, but when I am going to do some hobby work, I turn on the heater. It works very well at quickly heating up the space, and the fan if fairly quiet. My only disappointment is that the paint is peeling off of the grill (see attached pictures). If it is caused from the heat, I would think that it should have been heat proof paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it We installed one of these units in a home we built 6 years ago in a bathroom. Worked great, and put out a LOT of heat. The builder installed it, so I'm not sure how easy it was to install. The only complaint is the dial or "thermostat" doesn't have the actual temperature on the dial. It just reads 1-10, so if you're looking to set it at an exact temperature, you're out of luck. We didn't need to, so it didn't really bother me.

Installed this heater 2 years ago and to this day it continue to trip the protection reset. I have installed the optional wall thermostat and it still trips before it shuts down. We have gone to a portable and the Broan is not used, not reliable...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Troublesome unfortunately First the positives - the heating performance is impressive, the unit was easy to install, and the remote thermostat works as advertised. Manufacturer customer service is very good. Unfortunately we've had problems too. The first blower motor developed a rumbling noise and gave out after 3 years. A replacement motor was installed and developed the same rumbling noise. Customer service at Broan basically said these units are sensitive to fan balance, which is pretty hard for a customer to sort out. Lastly, the unit makes a big racket on shutdown, a resonance in the sheet metal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy Heater I had read other reviews that this heater is noisy, and thought they were being unreasonable in their expectations of quietness. But it turns out they were right. I purchased a second one but it had the same problem. I ended up getting a QMark (Marley) heater and it has a normal noise level, and looks better built. I had chosen the Broan heater because it was very close in size to the one I was replacing, so would not require any patching on the wall. I will never waste my time with Broan heaters again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective Easy to install. Installed in a insulated greenhouse on the side our new home. 10x20 space with 10' angled ceiling. Keeps it cozy warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Worked well in my pool room and installed easy. It needs better instruction on how it works. The fan continues to run after the heater turns off until it is cooled. At first it appears the fan runs all the time. Also the high/low should be printed on the enclosed to make it easier to understand.
