Customer Questions & Answers

i THOUGHT IT SAID IN THE SPECS THAT IT HAS A THERMOSTAT AND DOES IT HAVE A FAN AND DOES IT SHUT OFF AOUTOMATICLY?

Asked by: 4EN8
It does have a single pole thermostat 45 to 90 degrees. It also has a switch to automatically shut off the unit if the unit runs to hot.

I have a 220 outlet plug in in the garage already. I want to know if I can plug this unit into that and be done?

come on, simple question!
Asked by: Gomer
I did. Called a couple of local electricians. One said this unit will not be ok on a 220 volt drier cord. Hooked it up. Perfect. No problems. Has run for several hours w/ no problem. I DO NOT leave this powered all the time, only when I am working in the detached garage which I installed it.

Does this have an on/off switch if i wire it direct?

Asked by: rfullhouse
It does but it is on the unit itself. I installed an in-line switch so I can set the thermostat and then turn it off and back on without having to mss with the thermostat again. It is not marked by degrees.

Is it loud?

Asked by: Kwoz21
No. That was one of my concerns also and it is relitively quiet.

5,000-Watt Unit Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LET THERE BE HEAT! Rated for 500 sq ft is an understatement if you ask me. My attached garage is... LET THERE BE HEAT! Rated for 500 sq ft is an understatement if you ask me. My attached garage is around 600 sq ft and drops to about 48 deg F when the outside temps are in the teens / low 20's. After installing this unit (extremely easy) I cranked it up and got the temp from 48 deg to 72 deg in about 1/2 hour. Off came the fleece and the hat and out came the cold beer! Of course I had to celebrate now that I have a comfortable enough man cave to escape the household madness. Don't let the basic design and manual control deter you from making the purchase, you will not be disappointed by its performance. Here's why: 1) Much quieter than most forced fan electric heaters 2) Easy connections from bottom of unit 3) Heats space up quickly and evenly 4) Line voltage thermostat can be integrated

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far so good I put the heater in an attached three bay garage. Half the garage is 20' high the other half is standard height. I live in Minnesota and have not experienced the middle of winter yet but the heater has done a good job of bringing the garage temp up to the mid 50's when it was in the teens outside.

This heater works well, I have a 40x30 uninsulated garage with 10 foot ceiling. I use half for wood working and have the heater hanging in the corner. Starting at 53 degrees the temp will rise 2 degrees ever 30 minutes, The heater was easy to install just ran a 10-3 wire on a 30 amp breaker. I would have gave it five stars but when I received it the case was bent in a few spots and the louvers where bent and two where laying in the bottom of the box. This had to happen at the factory because the box was undamaged. I would recommend installing an external 220 - 240 volt wall thermostat so you don't have to keep a ladder near bye . To sum it up It works well and I would buy it again.

We installed this little guy in our new 20 X 45 garage with the intention of keeping things above freezing and hoping for at least a little better. The timing was perfect, just before this December's polar event, 20 degrees the day we put it in, then down to 4 degrees, bottoming out at minus 30 degrees the following weekend. The heater took about two hours to get from the 20's to the mid 40's and when it got to 48 we turned it down to keep it there. Now it's set at one click below "low" and it has held 46 to 48 degrees throughout the cold snap, the snow and the wind. We brought the space up to 65 last weekend to do a project out there and it had no problem heating or maintaining- it was a pleasure to work in the space- and we have not turned it up to "high" yet (I doubt we ever will). Electricity is pricey up here and I originally intended to go for natural gas, but we calculated that the difference between the cost of the heating unit plus installation will power this electric heater for several years before the gas unit would have begun to be cost effective. I really couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase: it's doing exactly what I asked for at a very reasonable price, and doing it in some pretty awful conditions besides. Five stars.

I have a detached garage, approximately 500 square feet, insulated walls, ceiling, & garage door. Temperature today was a high of 7, low so far -3, all night last night! My garage was about 36-38 degrees this afternoon. Took a couple of hours but it got to 50 degrees before I shut it down & went in for the night. It was still heating & if I was going to be in there longer it would have gotten even warmer. In higher temperatures it will heat up to the point where I am turning it down. I would absolutely buy this again if/when needed. By the way, I live at at elevation of over 6800' on the high plains just east of Colorado Springs, CO. I waited to post this until I had a chance to use it when it got really cold.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does Not Operate Long Enough to Do Any Good I've got a well-insulated two car garage. Thought this unit would heat it during moderately cold temps to at least above 50F, but it cuts out so much that it just never heats the garage above 50F. It has an automatic cutoff that prevents it from running consistently until it gets above 50F, so it has not provided me with much use. I have the FUH54B model.

Just installed and it quickly heated the garage to my desired temperature. Fairly quiet. While maybe not the most economical to run in comparison to gas it was by far the least expensive route and suits my needs just fine. I did install an in-line switch as recommended in some of the reviews I checked prior to ordering.

Small unit heats well, is quiet and easy to install, but so far has been extremely expensive to run!!! My previous electric bill was $143.00 my bill after running it on the low setting for one month was $406.00. Not sure what the answer is now, can't afford $400.00 a month electric bills!!!!
