Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent heater. Fast startup, quiet and great blower. This heater is well worth the money. I tried a much cheaper model and the fan wouldn't even turn. This heater will put out some heat. I have a 24 x 24 fully insulated garage and it can take it from 40 to 60 in no time and keep it there. The thermostat and high/low settings are very nice. It runs quiet enough, much quieter than a torpedo style. You can still hold a conversation or watch TV. The sides and back are cool to the touch. I installed mine on an older style TV swivel so I can direct the heat in almost any direction. I also run a ceiling fan as my garage ceiling is around 12 foot high. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aside from a few quality control issues unit worked well Needed supplemental heat in a shower / soaking tub room built entirely on a outside wall [not too smart]. The fan wouldn't turn on the first heater I purchased. Shaft was bent, so I returned it. Second heater had a signicant vibration. Problem was the fan blade that had been painted by what looked to be a dipping process. The painting was so uneven it thru the blade out of balance. Not sure why they painted blade, but I stripped the paint off and have now enjoyed the heater for over 7 years. September 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for this application We put this heater in our 3-car garage. While a pain to hard-wire in a suitable outlet to plug in the unit, once installed everything works to perfection. November 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is sturdy and performs well I bought this to replace a pellet stove. Works great! Have a friend that has one in a large office in a shop. Always very comfortable in his place. Convinced me to give a try. No regrets. The thermostat keeps the heat at a comfortable level. March 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 looks nice I am heating a 2 car garage. I keep it at about 45 degrees. so far this unit has had no problem keeping the garage warm. the true test will be in a month or so when temps get down to 10 degrees. cant wait to see what it can do.. November 6, 2013
