Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value Used this to heat my 12' x 20' workshop. Good heat output and fan is quiet yet powerful. May 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good bang for your buck The Heater is quiet and heats my insulated 2 car garage in no time even on a cold winter night (Montreal QC) and I have 12 ' cielings. I find it great value for money so far. I'm not sure how it will last long term as I only just got it but it seems well made. That being said I intend to find my own thermostat that I can leave inline with the heater as a backup. (I had a friend with a similar heater who came home to find his heater thermostat failed and it was running constantly. The plug was melting and he had to turn it off at the braker) January 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Compact efficient heater This heater works well, not too heavy, well constructed, reasonably priced. The only problem I had was the plug, which I have never seen in western Canada. I had to replace it ($15.00, Home Depot) with one that would fit my welder extension cord. November 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 29, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very HOTT Little Box !!!!! This is one hot little box..... A lot of heat out of a small package, Measuring only 9 wide x 13 high X 8 inches deep this thing puts out a ton of heat for the price, All I had to do was change the plug so I could use the same 220 volt receptacle I use for my table saw. Has a built in thermostat that works well, I am using it to heat my Poorly insulated one car garage shop/lounge, in the morning it will raise the temperature to a comfortable 70 degrees in about 15-20 minutes when its 20 degrees outside. They must have made some improvements as I did not think it was loud.. With the TV on I cant even hear it running. I had another 5000 watt made by a competitor and it died after 2 years, was twice as noisy and didn't put out as much heat even though it was larger. I dont think you can go wrong for the price and it looks well built as well February 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As Advertised! Great Value! Initially thought I made a mistake when unit was delivered. It was way smaller than I pictured it. Hung it from the ceiling, plugged it in, and WHOA! You can bake cookies in my oversized one-car garage now! Quiet, looks good, well constructed, hung it from the ceiling. Love it! January 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by performs better than expected We purchased this to heat our 2 stall garage primarily to prevent the pipes above from freezing and bursting again. Pipes were wrapped with heating cables and insulation but it still wasn't enough when it hits 22 below. However with this temperature controlled heater, we know that will never happen again...thank you for the piece of mind this gives us March 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very pleased with performance This unit takes a few minutes to get up to a nice heat output with my garage temp at 40 degrees. I will start the heater 5 min before I work in the area. The plug is a 30amp 220v but I only had a 20amp 220v circuit, connected it and took a amperage reading of 11amps and is working fine.
