Questions & Answers

When the thermostat temp is reached, does the fan shut off?

When the thermostat temp is reached, does the fan shut off?
Asked by: Larrys
Yes, the fan will shut off upon reaching the set temperature. There is a thermostatically controlled “on/off” switch.

Does it have a thermostat

Does it have a thermostat? If so what is the temp range?
Asked by: SeeMe
Yes, but it is just a dial without any temperature indicator. I had mine run with the dial turned all the way up until the temperature was where I wanted (measured with a separate thermometer). When the temperature right where I wanted it I then turned it down slowly until it kicked off. After that it came on and off to hold the temperature right there.

can it be hung from ceiling

can you hang from ceiling with the supplied handle or base?

Asked by: dennis
The instructions say not to hang it from the ceiling. I would recommend hanging it on the wall a couple feet down from the ceiling since you really want it circulating the warm air lower where you can feel it. It will also be drawing in and heating air that is cooler if it is mounted low, rather than heating air that is already warmer. This will help warm all the air in the room faster to help overcome the cold floor (that is my issue).

The Hot One 5000-Watt 240-Volt Electric Garage Portable Heater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 118.

A quiet fan, and it warms things up. I'm not sure it would work for a large garage, but it brings the heat up. I'm in a tent within a greenhouse, and we will see how it fares in the freezing weather. The casing doesn't get hot, or even warm as far as I can tell. There are a lot of products out there, but this one seems to do the job.

It doesn't have a sensor, I believe, so it blows continually, so I turn it down or shut it off when it is warm enough. We are keeping our large ferns in the garage this winter and some other plants, and our cats sleep out there and play also, so we needed something to warm it up.

This unit could not have possibly been tested before it was package as stated in the installation instructions/owners manual. I had to modify the motor mount so the fan had enough clearance to turn freely. Once the problem was fixed, the heater worked flawlessly and heats my space very well.

The thermostat also seems to do a great job with controlling the temperature in my garage. Overall it heats like it should, it's relatively quiet, and I'm happy with it.

Still too early in the year to tell if it will heat the garage adequately, but the electrician said it would. I actually purchased it because of his recommendation. It runs quiet and looks good.

Heats the space well & quickly so far(1car garage not well insulated; 10 degree out). Loud. No fan speed adjustment so no relief from the noise. But it gets the space toasty.
