Customer Questions & Answers

Does it have a thermostat

Does it have a thermostat? If so what is the temp range?
Asked by: SeeMe
Yes, but it is just a dial without any temperature indicator. I had mine run with the dial turned all the way up until the temperature was where I wanted (measured with a separate thermometer). When the temperature right where I wanted it I then turned it down slowly until it kicked off. After that it came on and off to hold the temperature right there.

can you hang from ceiling with the supplied handle or base?

Asked by: dennis
The instructions say not to hang it from the ceiling. I would recommend hanging it on the wall a couple feet down from the ceiling since you really want it circulating the warm air lower where you can feel it. It will also be drawing in and heating air that is cooler if it is mounted low, rather than heating air that is already warmer. This will help warm all the air in the room faster to help overcome the cold floor (that is my issue).

The Hot One 5000-Watt 240-Volt Electric Garage Portable Heater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 89.

I recently purchased this heater so I could enjoy working in my garage workshop during the winter months. I have had it for about 3 weeks now...........it heats my 20 x 20 garage with a 9 ft ceiling very nicely. One day when it was 33 degrees outside my heater warmed up the garage to a very comfortable 68 degrees within a few hours. I like the thermostat feature and the multi speed control. One of the best features is that the outer cabinet does NOT get hot to the touch! All in all I am very pleased with the overall heavy duty construction of the unit. I don't know why I did not purchase this years ago.

With it 30' outside, at least brings the garage up from high 40s to the 60s. Haven't experimented with it enough yet. In the process of adding some garage door and crawl space door insulation, then I think it will get to house room temperature. Also think a ceiling fan would help me since I think a lot of the heat is up there. Install can be a pain depending on where you have to run your wire. I ran 10-2 wire about 75 feet with one double pole switch at our house entrance door (Leviton 30 Amp Industrial Double Pole Switch), so that was a little painful but added some nice convenience. Mounted the unit on the wall above a work bench.

Does a good job of keeping me in the workshop as long as I work on the end of the bench near the heater. At $0.75 an hour it doesn't get a chance to run very long because I'm in and out of the workshop and don't want to leave it spending unattended. Blows enough warm air to make standing nearby tolerable in 20 degree weather, but takes a while to warm up my un-insulated drafty 2 car garage. I'm warm but the tools are still cold to the touch. No smell or moist heat that propane heaters create, and no risk of disaster if it gets knocked over, which has not happened yet. Moves enough air that the well designed case does not get burning hot. Note the direction of the plug at the end of the cord. Had to flip the my outlet over 180 degrees to make the cord fall straight down and remove stress on the cord and outlet.

The second one works, but the high/low and the adjustment dial are meaningless. It's either all the way on or all the way off. But it does produce good heat. I would not recommend this product.
