Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Little Heater! I installed this heater in my insulated 3 car garage (750ish sq) and it works great! Spec's would say this heater is only rated up to 500sq of space which in my opinion is under estimated. I live in Iowa and days when it is 15 F out, I have this heater set at 55 F and it will keep it at that temp very easy. I would say it runs maybe 5-10 min at most after opening the doors and letting cold air in. This thing also pushes out a lot of air which I was pleasantly surprised to find; quickly circulates warm air. I can also occasionally kick it up to 65-70 degree's and within 10 min the whole garage is there. Would highly recommend!. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent price for great performance!! I have a 20 x 20 garage, and this heater is a perfect fit! I am out in the garage quite a bit during the cold months, so I need it at least 60-65 degrees to work. I was using a portable clean kerosene heater prior, and it was costing me about $90 in fuel per month. That cost was only for the times I was out there and had the heater on. With the Fahrenheat, I keep the garage at about 60-65 degrees ALL the time. I just got my first electric bill from a full month's use (granted we had the coldest days of the winter in this month) and in was about $55 to run. A cost cut in half for me! It does have a thermostat, and I added a double pole switch as well. I would definitely recommend this heater! Easy to install and mount! February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value My garage is 517 sf with a 10 ft ceiling . It's insulated and has 2 metal garage doors , 2 walk doors and a window . There's air leakage around the garage doors . The size of the heater worried me a little because it looked small for that size of a room . I had researched heaters for a while and the reviews were good so I went ahead with the help of a friend and installed it overhead . The weather that day was in the mid 50's but I wanted to see how many degrees it would rise in an hour .Turned it on and came back in an hour and it was 10 degrees warmer . Outstanding in my mind for a heater that size . This heater for me operates exactly like it's described , quite and efficient . I have only had it about 2 weeks but so far it's worked great . It puts out a lot of heat for a small investment . Norm April 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sweet Heater! This heater is sweet and easy to install. Used 10/2 wire with flexible conduit to a 30 amp breaker switch. When you first fip the breaker on, the fan unit takes a few minutes to turn on, I thought I missed wired something at first. Have a large, 2 car garage. It got down to 23 degrees here in Iowa allready last night. Went out to the garage this am and the garage was nice and toasty! Now with the heater, my HD TV, and a old college refrigerator my daughter gaveme, my wife will never see me on weekends :). November 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This heater is efficient and the perfect size for my garage. I easily mounted this myself, but did use an electrician to run the electrical line. October 24, 2013
