Questions & Answers

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 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 89.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The first one - the fan grated on the... The first one - the fan grated on the casing and had to be returned. The second one works, but the high/low and the adjustment dial are meaningless. It's either all the way on or all the way off. But it does produce good heat. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Installed in a 3-car garage to keep workshop area & water heater warm during colder winter. I had a local electrician installed the 220v/30 amp outlet above the existing power panel. Because the mounting bracket is short of the standard 16-inch spacing of wall studs, I first mounted a 1x10, 20-inch length board with 1/4x2-inch lag screws & flat washers. The mounting bracket fit between these four (4) lag screws and I secured it with three (3) additional 1/4x2-inch lag screws & flat washers in the provided mounting holes. On the first day of use with the outside temperature at 40 degrees, this garage heater easily brought the garage temperature up to 70+ degrees!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shop is warm Have installed it in a 12x20 well-insulated shop in unheated barn. Warms up quickly on high and maintains on low, per mfg instructions. Thermostat is easily adjustable and has wide range of temps. Very heavy, should last . Have a couple months use in Colorado Fall and early Winter. A little pricey, if it lasts then better value. Spins the meter pretty good on high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great heater for shop I have a 30 x 40 shop, I have two of these heaters mounted in the shop. I live were winters get cold for a couple months and the heaters do a good job of heating that shop up to work in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hey, it's made in USA This is a very high quality heater that heats my uninsulated 2 car garage very well. It does take a couple of hours to get the garage to room temperature when it is 32 degrees or below outside since I don't leave it running all the time. However, once it gets warm it keeps the garage very comfortable and it cycles on and off due to the built in thermostat. It also has a very powerful fan that distributes the heat to the room. I like that it is made in the US and has a five year guarantee. It also comes with a complete parts diagram and spare parts list if needed. Keep in mind you will need a 240V 30 Amp outlet to power this heater. I'm not sure how much it will impact my electric bill, but it's worth it to keep warm on those cold days. I would recommend this heater if you don't have the option of heating with natural gas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
