Questions & Answers

Can this heater be hung? For example. Hang from the rafter in a garage

Asked by: Ljh64
Yes, the stand doubles as a hanger; comes with screws & molly bolts. It weighs about 12#, so fasten it to studs/rafters, not just drywall.

Will this heater be safe to use in a garage working with flammable chemicals? stain, oil, poly, gas?
Asked by: october87
I can't give an official safety agency answer. I think I would feel OK using it around woodworking chemicals and light dust. With the heavy air flow from the fan I don't think the heater surfaces are hot enough to ignite any of the chemicals. If your concentration is high enough to ignite then it is likely to high for your human body also. There may also be sparks in the switch and thermostat that could ignite chemicals in the air. Again I'd hope your air concentrations don't reach a level that significant. Keep open containers away from the heater fan in any event. I'm not a lawyer nor a safety expert. Your Mileage May Very.

If the power goes out and then comes back on does heater restart

If the power goes out and then comes back on does heater restart
Asked by: Sherry
I've not tried to unplug and test. However the switches and thermostat are all mechanical type (not electronic) so they should not lose their settings. It should come back to the same operation when failed power is restored.

Would this heater be suitable for use in a small greenhouse?
Asked by: Mgguy
I use it in a 22 x 22 insulated garage, and it works very well; will maintain 65* easily, so it would probably heat your greenhouse very well.

The Hot One 4000-Watt 240-Volt Electric Garage Portable Heater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have a basement level attached 2 car garage 24' x 28' with 8" poured foundation walls and a 16'... I have a basement level attached 2 car garage 24' x 28' with 8" poured foundation walls and a 16' x 7' insulated garage door. The concrete walls provide a low R2 value and the garage door is rated at R7. The ceiling is 9' with W40x12 24' steel beams with 16 gauge floor decking to support a concrete slab (there is another 2 car garage above). The Hot One heater keeps the space at comfortable 67.5 degrees and cycles nicely. I have it on the low setting. It runs about 5 minutes at a time, maybe 2 to 3 times an hour. This is the most economical solution for me, and I'll let you know how the electric bill is once I receive a coupe bills this winter. I set the heater on steel table to keep it off the floor to avoid dirt/dust blowing through the heater. I collect and restore 1960s era pinball machines, so I'll be nice and warm working in the garage this winter. And the machines will like it too! (The gas cans in the pictures below are empty, you shouldn't have any filled gas cans near your heater)...

One thickness of cardboard and no padding (only one cardboard filler piece removed in picture). No wonder people complain about damage. Fortunately the unit is heavy and strong and mine arrived apparently unscathed. Air coming out does seem not hot enough for 4000 watts but that would likely be due to the high volume fan that moves a lot of air over the heater coils. In a very rough test I added 10 degrees air temperature (from 50 to 60 degrees) in about 1/2 hour to my 1 car well insulated and sealed garage/work shop. Of course the concrete floor is a significant heat sink that is tough to heat and also makes for cold feet. I think this will be a very useful tool in my shop. Previously, my very old 1500W radiant heater was good for keeping my pant's legs and my back warm on very cold days if I stood directly in front of it. My somewhat old oil filled 1500W radiator style heater I would just about have to sit on to get warmth and it was slow to produce heat from being switched on. Those old heaters could add maybe a few degrees air temp in an hour. I'm anxious to try the Cadet on a colder day but that may have to wait until next winter now. I like the idea of being able to run the fan without heat for summer air flow and having the garage door open. The heater is heavy enough I'm going to have to design some sort of sturdy swivel mount if I want to wall or ceiling mount and also have the ability to aim the air flow around or across my work space.
