Questions & Answers

is this heater equipped with a 110 or 220 cord?

Asked by: johnny
The heater is 220 volt single phase. It come with a 220 plug that has 2 horizontal flat prongs over a round neutral prong. You can either have yourself or an electrician install an outlet for it can be wired directly into circuit box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one yet! I have been using different products over the years to heat my garage and this BY FAR is the best product yet. My garage is not very tight so it is hard to heat. I have a wood stove so of course it does get very warm but it takes forever for it to heat up using wood and not everyone has a wood stove. This amazing little unit tackled the job with a grin!! 4800 watts is a lot of power to use and would be quite heavy on the electric bill if it was used ALL the time and what i mean by that is if you kept your garage at room temp all winter. Nobody does this i hope!! Because it works so well it doesnt need to be on constantly therefore it is rather efficient!! Thank you Dimplex!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Heater This is the third heater I have tried, all were 4800W units and the first two were from other stores not Home Depot and not Dimplex brands, the first two did not heat up as quickly and were extremely noisy, one vibrated so badly it almost fell off the shelf I made for the heater and fan sounded like it was shredding leaves. This Dimplex is the quietest I have tested, can hardly hear it when it's on in my shop, and provides great and quick heat. Last night it was below freezing and I was a comfortable at 65 degrees F inside my 14x28 fully insulated with 8' ceiling garage (R12 walls and R20 Ceilings). Only complaint is when the unit shuts down, element is extremely hot, fan should have a delay and run until element cools as a safety feature and to take advantage of the residual heat in element, just keep unit at least 1 foot from anything that may be effected by this residual heat and it's fine. Other than that it is the best I have tried so far, would recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Heater I replaced a milkhouse heater used in the garage to keep it tolerable. 1500 w heater ran constantly and did a poor job. This little heater does a great job and keeps the garage at a constant temperature. The thermostat takes a little time to adjust as it only has a numbered dial. Be prepared it is not a large heater, about a foot square, and needs a 30amp 220/240 outlet. Outlet is relative easy to install with moderate electrical skill and about $30-$50 in materials depending on placement distance. It has a decent fan and needs a little clearance as it gets fairly hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but hot Does a good job. Only thing I didn't expect was that big an increase in electric bill. I keep it on low near the floor level. 30x15 shop not insulated. I turn it up when I'm working on bench. I also have a quartz heater.
