Questions & Answers

Where is the therostat located? I don't see it in the pic.

Where is the thermostat located? I don't see it in the pic. Can this be set up with a wall thermostat..
Asked by: steve
Sure it can be set up with a wall thermostat, all you have to do is turn the one on the unit all the way up so it will not work (stay on all the time) or bypass it (which I would do) and use a rated wall thermostat with the proper wiring. These guys who tell you otherwise are not electricians and certainly not experts. If you are not sure about how to do this hire a licensed electrician.

does it have to be hard wired or can you plug it it a specified receptical?

Asked by: PaPa
Anything can be hard wired by taking off the cord and ending it in say a 4x4 sq. Nothing in the nec says you cant, but you do need a switch to be able to turn it on or off if breaker is not within sight

Trying to find a way to heat a 13'X18' workshop/photo studio in MN.

I am looking for a unit that will heat this small area when I need this out building for photo shoots. When done fixing up this out building it will be insulated very well. Does this have the ability to warm the area to a comfortable level if turned on an hour before I need to use the space? I was quoted $2200.00 by a heating guy to put a gas heater in and that's just crazy. I need a unit that I can just turn on ( or Plug in) and have it warm the space only when needed. It doesn't need to have to be on all the time, only when I am out there. Is this the unit I have been looking for? And yes, I already have a 220 line out there as the previous owner did arc welding out in the workshop.
Asked by: Danny
The operative variable is Minn-ee-soo-tah. If you're talking January, in the teens, not likely. This 5KW unit worked well for me in Northern Virginia when the temps stayed between the mid-twenties and above, but for my 20x20 space, at the lower temps, it had to run constantly while I was working in the space and the farthest parts of the space were still chilly. Your space is a little smaller, but each degree colder makes it even more tough to keep things warm. The other question is are your photo-subjects in Parkas or Bikinis. LOL

Asked by: BOB
Good Morning, The rule of thumb is 10 watts per square foot. Your room 20x15 is 300 feet x 10 watts. So you need 3000 watts of heat. Thank you

5,000-Watt Electric Compact Unit Heater is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heater This little unit puts out a lot of heat. I added a plug to the end of the wire to plug in the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little garage heater I bought this to make it more comfortable while working in my 575 sq ft garage. Using the btu calculator this unit doesn't quite put out enough btu's to efficiently heat the space, but I decided to try it anyway. Tho it doesn't get up to 70 deg out there, it makes it comfortable enough to work in, while the outdoor temps are below freezing. Obviously it can get a little pricey if use it daily, so I just turn it on a couple hrs before I go out there. It runs most of the time, but again, it is small for the sq ft. Overall it does what I want it to do.
