Customer Questions & Answers

Do I use 6-2 or 6-3 wire?

This furnace requires a 50 amp breaker and 6 awg wire, but does it require 6-2 with two conductors and a ground or 6-3 with two conductors and a neutral? This furnace has a fan which I assumed would require a neutral wire.
Asked by: Stdy
No neutral wire is required. The fan is 240 volt. 6-2 wire with ground is what's needed.

Mounting

How do I mount it to the wall ? Do I use screws and drill thru the housing ?
Asked by: Bob
The unit comes with two screws and two small mounting tabs. These tabs are placed over the top lip of the housing, half of the tab is over the housing and the other half goes against the wall. Screw each tab into wall. The unit itself sets on the floor.

I would also like to know if you can connect a wifi thermostat to this furnace, if so what kind?

Asked by: Sharon
Yes you can. The yellow and red cables go to the thermostat. You will also see a low voltage blue cable with a connector. You should connect that to the Common connector in the thermostat. You will need cash 3 conductor thermostat wire.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not really ready for review As far as we know it's fine. Probably won't use it until fall. I'm probably not the one to ask at this time. It was exactly as described. About all that I can say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!! We have a basement that I could just never keep warm enough with traditional spac... Great product!! We have a basement that I could just never keep warm enough with traditional space heaters. Not to mention I had to keep at least two running 24/7 to even keep it even mildly warm in the winter months just so we could get laundry done (electric bill would go thru the roof and forget about hanging out down there as it just wasn't an option). This heater keeps the space warm and comfy at all times with no issues and only runs occasionally assuming you keep the thermostat set and don't allow the space to cool way down overnight, etc. The install was quick and easy but probably not for your average person who doesn't understand electrical wiring. If your not comfortable and know what you are doing please hire an electrician as this kind of application is not something to mess around with. If you do it yourself just unscrew the terminal strip temporarily, connect the wiring, and screw it back in place (can't really understand why so many people complained about that part of the install on this site and other sites as it's so obvious!). I would also recommend getting a better thermostat as the one it comes with sucks and is garbage. It doesn't sense temperature well and would kick on and off randomly for no apparent reason (I imagine this would shorten the overall life of the unit). I picked up a $25 Honeywell stat and a spool of 50' of stat wire and it works perfect. This also allowed me to install it on the other side of the space so it wouldn't turn off prematurely and truly heat the entire basement to the temperature I want. Some other pros are the unit is fairly quiet and fits nicely along a wall without taking up too much space. It can also be recessed mounted with an optional finish frame purchased direct from the manufacturer. They also sell a "back vent" optional attachment should you want to install it in wall between two rooms and heat them both (planning on using this when we finish out the basement and create a spare bedroom down the road). I recommend having it delivered direct to your closest home depot if possible. This avoids it being man handled by freight carriers who toss it all over and tend to damage large bulky items like this. Mine arrived in perfect condition and if it didn't you can just refuse it at the store and let them deal with re-ordering it, etc. The breaker, conduit, and about 3x35' of 6 gauge wire ran about $100 just so you know rough costs if you were to do it yourself. 6 gauge wire is not cheap so depending on how far your running it costs can vary. Do not skimp on the wire gauge as some other idiot mentioned. This is reckless and stupid. Your life is not worth a few dollars on a one time install! All in all very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone wanting to heat a large space easily and inexpensively.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from williams electric heater Read all the reviews. I agree with them all. Package was a little banged up. The space for the wiring is tight. The unit rattles unless you tighten some screws and secure it tightly to the wall... and the thermostat is cheap but it works. This thing kicks butt! I went from 35 to 70 like it was nothing.absublutely will sweat you out. My house is 1500sf. Totally amazazing!! Giving it 4 out of 5 only because of the wiring connection. Pain in the butt with the heavy gauge wire. I was cussing the engineer until I was done... but this is a great unit

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I will keep this review strictly to the product and not mention the issues on getting it through ... I will keep this review strictly to the product and not mention the issues on getting it through HD. I have a cabin that was in need of an efficient heat source. This is a seasonal cabin and insulation is minimal with a square footage less than 900 sq. ft., which includes a loft area. I received this unit slightly damaged, but was able to bang out most of the issues. (Top trim panel) This unit requires a heavier gauge wire that will support a 40 amp draw so I ran the required wiring and found a location central to the cabin so that the heat would be equally distributed. The unit appeared well built and sturdy. I placed it flush to the wall, and secured it with the attached hardware. Running the wiring to the terminals located at the top of the unit was easy, however, trying to attach the 8 gauge wire to the terminal posts located so close to a steel panel wall was not exactly easy, but I got it done after a few choice words and some help from my master electrician father. Anyway, this is a nice clean looking unit. I installed the thermostat which is included in the unit. It is just a basic thermostat and you may consider a higher tech digital one if you need something more efficient and programmable. Now, I turned on the unit and sparks and what appeared to be metal shavings blew out the bottom vent. This was brief, lasting only a second or two, and frankly scared me a bit. I started to shut down the unit, but it stopped almost as quickly as it started. The fan was great, not too loud, and the unit heated almost instantaneously. Air is drawn from the top of the unit and forced down over the heating coils (?) located near the mid section of the unit, and then the warm air is forced down out the bottom vent area of the unit. This unit worked great and far surpassed my current sources of heat amounting to baseboard and space heaters. This wall furnace met my expectations and was well worth the money. I was concerned about the casing getting hot where the heating element was located due to my granddaughter possibly touching it and getting burned. The casing was not hot and my concerns were unfounded. I would recommend this unit to anyone needing a good and efficient heater, at least in an area that is 1000 square feet or less, or larger if you have an insulated home/cabin.
