Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 41 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 Very productive heater,good price and easy installation. This little unit as small as it is heats my 10x10x 12' ceiling garage in about 15 to 20 minutes of being on. I checked the temp and it was 80 degrees on medium. I was holding back on buying this little thing but it proved me wrong. November 3, 2015
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 Easy install Easy self install, good directions, I only need to heat 210 sq feet in my garage, this will do the job just fine, already is and I have not finished insulating but close. I have done lots of home wiring this is the first time installing a circuit breaker. Looked up a great video on You Tube for instruction and confidence, was much easier than I imagined (10 ga. wire, 30 amp breaker). So for less that $350 I can keep my garage at a nice temp, which for me is 60 degrees or so, but I can easily go higher, just watching my electric costs.. The gas guys were quoting $2500 for a Renai heater, hello, payback on that would be 10 years, not going there. October 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Garage Heater! I read all the reviews on this heater and decided it was a quality heater. Once I received it I was certain I had a quality product. You can tell it is well built and was packed very well. It also shipped as promised with no delays. Working with a buddy we ran a 30 amp breaker and hard wired the heater. This heater works unbelievably well. Puts out great heat and is quiet. I have a 3 car garage and this does the trick. So glad I purchased this heater - no regrets at all! April 7, 2015
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 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Heater I have a LARGE two car garage (extra space for a work bench off the side) and this heater had my garage at 76 degrees on an 18 degree day. Neither the attic, walls, nor the garage door are insulated (and there is a double wide single pane window). Highly impressed!!! I will say the wiring schematic has something to be desired. It only shows three connections in the heater. White, black, and copper wire. You will not need a common (normally white) wire. I ran a 10/4 wire thinking that's what I would need for 220 volt (Red, black, white, and copper) and only used two leads plus a ground. Do yourself a favor and get a 10/3 wire and hook up the white and black to the power blocks on the heater and of course the copper to ground... NO common (that goes for the breaker box too).
