Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent heater. Fast startup, quiet and great blower. This heater is well worth the money. I tried a much cheaper model and the fan wouldn't even turn. This heater will put out some heat. I have a 24 x 24 fully insulated garage and it can take it from 40 to 60 in no time and keep it there. The thermostat and high/low settings are very nice. It runs quiet enough, much quieter than a torpedo style. You can still hold a conversation or watch TV. The sides and back are cool to the touch. I installed mine on an older style TV swivel so I can direct the heat in almost any direction. I also run a ceiling fan as my garage ceiling is around 12 foot high. January 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by keeps me warm I have a 1000 sq. ft. garage and able to keep it warm thru the cold winters. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value and performance! I've had this heater in my large shop for over a year and couldn't be happier. It does a terrific job in keeping my shop warm when the outside temperatures drop to freezing and below. Even when the outside temperatures drop below zero, the heater keeps the shop warm enough to work in comfortably. I've found it easy to install, operate and it has been very reliable. Excellent value for the dollar! You won't go wrong with this heater.... March 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Review-the hot one bought this last fall to help keep our old house's living room 'warm.' worked beautifully all winter. had it set to low heat and not very high on the setting. there are several other cadet in wall heaters to help keep our old house here on the farm around 50 degrees inside; unless we do some craft/hobbies and then we build a fire in the quadrafire wood stove. this heater worked beaufifully.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Packs a lot of heat in a small form factor. When I first plugged it in I was disappointed. I expected that at a 240v the heater would throw out a very high temperature. What it does instead is much better; it move a lot of air fast so it DOES put out a lot of heat, but distributed through a lot of air. March 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awesome The hot one works great. -14 out side and it kept my uninsulated garage at 43 which I thought was excellent. During normal cold days here in Ohio 10-30 deg. I had it set to keep the garage 60. March 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maintains a constant tempature supplies a reliable worry free heat source in my garage, should have bought this item years ago March 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent heater I installed this heater in my cabin just to keep the temperature above 55 degrees when I'm not there . Even when the temperature got down to 10 degrees outside, it held at 55. The cabin is about 588 sq. feet. I was worried it would be running alot when the temp. did get low and it didn't. Maybe on for 5 minutes and off for 15. Installing the 220 line only took about 3 hours. Great little heater !! February 10, 2015
