I have a 20 x 20 garage, and this heater is a perfect fit! I am out in the garage quite a bit during the cold months, so I need it at least 60-65 degrees to work. I was using a portable clean kerosene heater prior, and it was costing me about $90 in fuel per month. That cost was only for the times I was out there and had the heater on. With the Fahrenheat, I keep the garage at about 60-65 degrees ALL the time. I just got my first electric bill from a full month's use (granted we had the coldest days of the winter in this month) and in was about $55 to run. A cost cut in half for me! It does have a thermostat, and I added a double pole switch as well. I would definitely recommend this heater! Easy to install and mount!

My garage is 517 sf with a 10 ft ceiling . It's insulated and has 2 metal garage doors , 2 walk doors and a window . There's air leakage around the garage doors . The size of the heater worried me a little because it looked small for that size of a room . I had researched heaters for a while and the reviews were good so I went ahead with the help of a friend and installed it overhead . The weather that day was in the mid 50's but I wanted to see how many degrees it would rise in an hour .Turned it on and came back in an hour and it was 10 degrees warmer . Outstanding in my mind for a heater that size . This heater for me operates exactly like it's described , quite and efficient . I have only had it about 2 weeks but so far it's worked great . It puts out a lot of heat for a small investment .

I have a LARGE two car garage (extra space for a work bench off the side) and this heater had my garage at 76 degrees on an 18 degree day. Neither the attic, walls, nor the garage door are insulated (and there is a double wide single pane window). Highly impressed!!!
I will say the wiring schematic has something to be desired. It only shows three connections in the heater. White, black, and copper wire. You will not need a common (normally white) wire. I ran a 10/4 wire thinking that's what I would need for 220 volt (Red, black, white, and copper) and only used two leads plus a ground. Do yourself a favor and get a 10/3 wire and hook up the white and black to the power blocks on the heater and of course the copper to ground... NO common (that goes for the breaker box too).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Joey This heater is efficient and the perfect size for my garage.
I easily mounted this myself, but did use an electrician to run the electrical line.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JR53 Excellent heater serves it's intended purpose very well.
I purchased this heater to take the chill off my 625 sq ft woodworking shop as I didn't feel comfortable wearing a heavy jacket while operating power tools. I ran the conduit, pulled the wire, installed a master switch, and connected everything to the sub panel in the shop in just a few hours.
This little heater is GREAT. It cycles on & off as advertised and I can now work in my shop in shirt sleeves even during these crazy cold snaps in northern North Carolina.
Just as a side note; The fan does blow a goodly amount of air so I turn it off when applying finish to my projects.
