Answer: 
We are using one of Broan's own wall thermostats, a manual hand-turned one. It works well.

Answer (1)

December 23, 2015
Answer: 
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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 23, 2014
