Does the heater make noise? Does it make a whining noise, or is it white fan noise?

This question is from The Hot One 4000-Watt 240-Volt Electric Garage Portable Heater
October 16, 2016
I want to use it in a room where I'll be sleeping. White noise is okay but whine like I've heard on other heaters is unacceptable.

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for your question! The Hot One 4000 watt garage heater is designed to heat a 400-450 square foot garage or workshop. Due to the higher wattage of this heater, it will be louder as compared to our smaller wattage heaters. We generally would not recommend using this heater in a bedroom.

Answer: 
Hi Erad and thank you for your question.
The Hot One 4,000 watt 240 volt heater needs to be plugged into a NEMA #6-20R, 20 amp, receptacle and should not be hard wired. Please see page 3 of the Owner's Guide below.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice heater but needs better packaging Bought this heater along with a 5,000 watts 30 amp heater. The 5,000 watt heater did not have an off switch so I chose to wire for the 4,000 watt Hot One this one does have an off switch. The heater requires a NEMA-6-20 outlet to plug into. I bought the Hot One 4,000 so I could warm the inside of my 300 sq. ft. 3 season sun room. I hoped to extend its use into the late fall when outdoor temps dip into the 50's and 40's. To my surprise this heater delivers a substantial amount of heat and the built in fan delivers it across the room. First time I used it the room temp was in the mid 50's and chilly. I turned the knob to full on and set the switch on auto, after about an hour the temp had risen 20 degrees to mid seventies. Then I turned the knob back towards the off position until the unit shut off, this set the built in thermostat. After that the heater kicked on once every half hour for 5 minutes to bring the room temperature back up to the mid seventies. The heater is made in the USA and has a 5 year warranty. The other 5,000 watt heater had no off switch, made in China with a 1 year warranty. The Hot One 4,000 watt heater does the job for me. My only complaint is that the heaters exterior case was dented during shipping due to insufficient packaging. I'm planning to return this one and order another one. Hopefully that one won't be dented. October 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great heater I have used this heater to heat my house for the last 5 years. It has never failed me . It's a little noisy but it does the job with no problems. You won't be making a bad investment if you buy this heater. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a champ! Installed this in my 22'x32' garage/shop and for the first time the garage is a cozy place to hang out and make wood chips. Staying at a comfy 70 degrees with low settings. Well made, quiet and seems to be a quality made product. The only noise from it is the sound of the air being pushed. Fan comes on and off with heater. Mounted it sideways on the wall so the air can be redirected so as not to blow dust on projects when finishing. The bracket may need additional support for this application, it isn't designed for it and sags a little. November 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best heater ever... I've been trying different methods of heating my 720 sg ft insulated detached garage. After much research, I purchased this heater hoping it would live up to the reviews. Just so you know, I've never written a review for any product...no matter how good they are. However, this week in Iowa, it's been below zero (-9) with wind-chills in the -20's...yes, these are below zero. Running this heater only, it keeps the garage around the 55 degree range. This is impressive. Who would have thought this little heater would do such a thing. It's well built, easy to move around and is very safe. So, I would highly recommend this heater without any hesitation. January 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Recommend It -- Good Product It helps heat up the whole garage quickly. Seems to be well built, all-metal construction. Easy to use. Dials and switches are good quality. The settings between the low and the high are good; once the garage warms up, I can easily switch it to low to keep it comfortable. I would recommend the heater to anyone. Really makes the garage comfortable to work in on the cold days. March 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cadet 4000 Watt heater Number one, The Hi-Lo switch is for the wattage not fan speed. The Auto function heats the coil without the fan coming on, to the point that it TRIPS the reset on the machine WITHOUT the fan coming on! You have to turn the fan to ON manually or the unit trips. EXAMPLE: I turn on LO and turn heat knob up, walk away thinking the fan will come ON its Auto after all right? Well smoking and tripping the reset (and getting the coil hot) is what Auto did on my unit. So use the auto to heat the coil for 65 seconds, then turn to ON the heater then blows nice hot air for a bit and then goes warm. BIG heater coil for a smaller unit, nothing else even comes close as far as surface area for heat exchange. HIGH quality unit BUT the functions and buttons are confusing, I was ready to ship this back and forget it! February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by safe heat this heater is in my workshop & it works great & is safe to work around. October 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Heater I have a well insulated double garage. It does a great job of warming the space. I really like the fact that it is so quiet. I hung from the supplied bracket near a 220 outlet. Works great March 27, 2015
