Asked by: francis
I am sorry but I am not sure if that is a question or a statement. So in case it is a question I will pontificate. Many people ask me about the efficiency of electric heaters. The fact is they are essentially 100% efficient. Pretty much all the electricity you buy is turned into heat. Each kilowatt of electricity has 3413 BTU's worth of heat when sent through a resistance heater. So at 450 Watts this unit will draw a little less than a half a half a KW an hour. Or 1535 BTU's of heat output. It draws small amount of power because it is a small heater. Larger heaters will draw more power but put out more heat, but always in that same equation of 3413 BTU's per KW

Can you use an extention cord with this heater

Asked by: Hatch
Yes you can. However keep it mind that when plugging in a heater or any devise that might draw significant current you don't want to use an extension cored if you do not have to. When you do you should try to keep it as short as possible and it should be of a substantial gauge. If an appliance draws more current than the cord can supply the breaker and or GFI is apt to blow,

what and how do you use this

Asked by: verchew
This heater is used in agricultural and commercial applications where an exposed element is needed. I have seen it most frequently used on farms. It is placed under a metal watering stand. It heat conducts through the stand and keeps the watering troth from freezing. I have also seen it used in well houses in some cold climate states to prevent a well head from freezing. Because the element is exposed you would never use this heater in side a home.

Customer Reviews

Trojan Hot-Scot 450-Watt Electric Water Heater for Livestock and Water Tanks is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A cheap and workable heater A cheap well house heater that works, but the built-in thermostat is very hard to use for freeze protection (i.e. no calibration, not very sensitive, etc.). Using it with a Plug-In Freeze Protection Thermostat instead of depending on the built-in thermostat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great backup for wellpit I am still gathering information of operating cost for this product, but it it a reliable heater for my wellpit. I have previously had a freeze thermostat and a milkhouse heater, bought this as a backup, heats at a very consistent temperature with its own thermostat. It is a very good buy for the money.
