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.

How quiet is this unit once installed? Does this unit have variable heat settings? Meaning; Hi, Med and Low temperature?

Asked by: JCI
All forced air furnaces have blowers and motors. I don't find the noise to be excessive at all. No, it doesn't have a Hi, Med, Low setting. It's a wall mounted thermostat so you can set the temperature you desire. More information can be seen at their website below: https://www.williamscomfortprod.com/product/electrical-forsaire/

31,400 BTU/Hr - 9.2 kW Forsaire Counterflow Electric Wall Furnace is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35.
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

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.

Total basement size is 1600 Sq Ft. We had tried a couple of different small 1500 watt space heaters and they would not bring the temp up in the winter. Installation was simple and straight forward. if you do not know electrical and are not comfortable installing 240V breakers and wiring you need a licensed electrician. Had this up and running within 2 hours. The unit will raise the temp in the basement from 62 degrees to 70 plus in about 20 minutes. If you correctly place the thermostat, correctly holds temperature and cycles as it should. Great unit definitely worth the money for a finished basement without adequate venting or sizing of your primary furnace. Remember its an electric furnace (not heat pump), its not going to run for free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waiting on the winter I live in NW Ohio. My primary heat is wood because it is so readily available and it heats my house very comfortably. That is, until about 1:00 a.m. when the fire goes out. So I installed this wall furnace to maintain temperature in the house until we get up to reload the wood burner. Haven't seen any winter weather yet to provide a comprehensive review. But the trial run looks promising. It pumps a lot of heat into my finished basement! The installation was not too tough but I truly am a pro (no brag, just fact). The instructions were not the best and the terminal connectors for the #6 wires are undersized, making connection very tough for the recommended wire size. Because my feed length is less than 3 feet, I went with #8 and protected the circuit at 40 amps rather than the recommended 50 amps. Now we're just waiting on the winter.
