Answer: 
These are probably the dimensions of just the metal case. Our heater would fit into a box about 6.25" on a side. The fixed handle, switches, air exhaust grill and rubber feet poke out of various sides to make the total size larger and almost a perfect cube of around 6.25". It is impressively small though.

Answer: 
I did not take actual measurements of this heater but it is a small cube. It fits anywhere that you want to put it. I have another heater and when that breaks I will buy another big heat heater by Broan. I could have three of them and they would equal the size of my other heater. It is amazing the amount of heat that this small heater puts out.

Answer: 
Our unit has been running continuously for several hours on the low setting and all surfaces of the case are cool to the touch EXCEPT for the grill over the air output which is hot. Not cherry red hot, but too hot to comfortably touch for more than a second.

Answer: 
We had the motor-home up to 68 degrees and then we started to get too hot so we lowered the thermostat. We still could have set the thermostat higher if we wanted it hotter. I am not sure exactly what the highest setting would have heated the RV to.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The unit’s thermostat says Cooler and Warmer. The heater itself can get to a pretty good temperature, around 125 degrees. If you have additional questions, dial 888-336-6151 and our Technical Support Department can assist. Thanks, again.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great heater for it's size. The heater functions as advertised, a good amount of heat from a compact size heater. Noise level during use is quite acceptable. February 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent compact room heater Good little heater for small spaces, metal case appears sturdy. We use it inside our RV but it should be tough enough for a shop environment. 2 minor design related squawks: 1) the controls are on the side rather than the top of the heater making it difficult to see them to adjust if the unit is on the floor, and 2) the internal thermostat is too "twitchy" and often turns on the heater for just 1 or 2 seconds every 30 seconds until the room temperature falls enough to call for longer periods of heat. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Broad Big Heat - really is a big heater in a small body. This heater is wonderful. My sister recommended it to me. She has one that is probably 40 years old and still working. I live in a very old house with no central heat. This little tiny heater heats a room up in just a few minutes and will keep it warm on the low setting. I am delighted with my heater. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love our little 'Big Heat' ! Absolutely best heater we've read review about then purchased. Ease of use& especially the size being so accommodating. January 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as advertised Needs more fan. Strong for about five (5) feet. Compact January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Broan Heater excellent heater, small but puts out big heat. would definitely recommend. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST PURCHASE EVER This Broan Big Heat is extremely small and lightweight, has built in thermostat. Puts out great heat in no time. I will order another next week for downstairs bathroom. My guest will be very happy. I live in Angel Fire, New Mexico, 9200 " and bathrooms can be quite cold in the winters. I would highly recommend these units as my neighbor did to me. FABULOUS! November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIG HEAT 1500-WATT CERAMIC ELECTRIC PORTABLE HEATER When I saw how small it was 6x6...(that's inches folks), I said, "what have I purchased?" But after giving it a try, I am absolutely happy with the performance of this little dynamite of a heater. My room is 12 x 19 and this little heater keeps us warm and comfortable. I like the thermostat feature also. The only thing-if you want to keep it on carpeting make sure you have something non-flammable under it (like a 12x12 piece of tile) because it does get hot after a while. October 29, 2014
