Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tiglenz This heater puts a smile on my face!
Winter has come, and I didn't want to move all my hobby stuff from the garage to the house, so I decided to weather proof my garage. It started with some new windows from Home Depot, which I am very pleased with.
I checked into installing a gas heater in the garage, but it was way too costly, and would create a major eye sore.
I found this heater on the Home Depot website, and decided to give it a try. So far I love it. I had an electrician wire it up.
This morning it is 17 degrees outside and 67 degrees in my garage. This is with the thermostat set at less than medium.
My garage is 700 square feet with two large windows in it.
This heater is easily the most cost effective and efficient way for me to heat my garage. I turned it almost as low as it goes last night and the garage was 50 degrees when I went out there this morning. The overnight low was 12 degrees.
I've included a photo so you can see just how small this unit is. One more thing, the fan is surprisingly quiet.
I am very pleased with this choice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Anderson77 Cost a fortune to heat our building!
After reading the reviews we decided to give these heaters a try. We purchased two for our business. We knew that electric heat would be more expensive than gas, but gas wasn't an option at the time. The building was poorly insulated with 12' ceilings and about 2200 sq ft. The heaters did pretty well and we used propane for additional heat on colder days. Seemed to be working fine until we received our first month's electric bill--almost $2,000!!! The heaters were running constantly but we never dreamed it would be that inefficient and expensive. We are in the process of returning the heaters now before we jack up our electric bill even more.

Easy purchase - installation was no problem at all - wiring was very simple. Living in Mid Michigan garage/workshop can get very cold. This heater warmed up a 768 square foot detached garage from 28 F to 60 F in less than one hour. It will heat up 240 square foot work shop area in 20 minutes. (garage has R-19 in the walls and R-30 in the attic and I run the heat just on some evenings and weekends - I haven't had the unit long enough to see if I will have any savings over the ancient heater it replaced). The thermostat takes some getting used to, but I found when it gets warm enough just turn the dial counter clock-wise until the unit shuts off. You can maintain that temperature for however long you need it by making little adjustments clock-wise for more heat counter-clockwise for less. So far the heater is exactly what I needed.

Heater heats up my Long Island N.Y. two car garage with no problem. At 26 degrees outside temperature, the garage went from 45 degrees to 70 in 1hr and 15 minutes. Once the heat got up to 80, I adjusted the thermostat to maintain that temp. Living in a split ranch, once the garage is nice and toasty, I open the door leading into the den and it warms that up also. I don't even need to start my fireplace in the den. I'm like living la vida loca :-) Note: I had my buddy who is an electrician install the unit as you need to have a 30 amp circuit breaker installed in your panel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by D1950 Fit the bill perfectly.
The instructions were very complete and easy to follow. The heater works as stated. Wish I had bought two.
The product came very well packaged . Shipping was extremely quick.
Would recommend this product and Home Depot to any body.

This heater was easy to wire. I wired it to a dryer plug and outlet instead of direct wiring. I figured if I ever wanted to take it down I could just unplug it. I have a 25x 25 x8 garage and it works pretty well to warm it up. The thermostat is located on the front of the unit and is easily accessed.

I bought this before the winter set in and wanted to wait until it got good and cold before writing a review. I have a 32X28X8 woodworking shop. This past fall I put an additional 8" of insulation in the attic to give me a total of 14". I have 2 insulated 7' doors and one 36" door with glass light. I also have 2 30" double hung windows. I installed this heater in the middle back section of the shop. From a starting temp of 45 degrees I can warm my shop to 65 in about an hour and 72 in about 2 hours. I then cut the unit down to its lowest setting and it takes 2-3 hours to get down to 61 when it cycles back on. it will then come on every 45 min to an hour and stay on for 10 min or so. I am not in the shop every day but a few times a week. I figure it costs me about $2-3 a day to use when I am out there. the heat is great. No smell and fairly quiet. I highly recommend this unit. Very easy to install.

I would recommend this heater. But, was disappointed with it's size. Check it on other web sites. The measurements on Home Depot's site are incorrect. It is not 22"x16"x8".
