I installed 2 of these heaters in my 3+ car garage. After running 240 to the garage install was a breeze. Aside from their thermostat I put them on individual switches as well. On high setting at 50% of full heat the garage stays a nice toasty 68-70 degrees. I am very happy with these unit especially in light of the low price. I recommend these heating units.

I have been using this product for three weeks of freezing weather in Georgia. Product heats a 20' X 24' and 10' ceiling detached garage with no problem. I keep the dial set around 1/3 of the full radius of the dial and the temp is around 74 degrees at all times. It is easily wired. One negative is no thermostat control for this unit. I am pleased with this unit and happy I did not order a larger unit.

We installed this heater about a month ago. Our temps have hovered in the 20's at night and 40's - low 50's during the day, and the heater has been able to easily maintain an even temp of around 65 in our attached 1 car garage day and night, on the 3000-Watt setting, and at less than halfway on the temp dial. We needed to have a 240 line run to our garage so the heater was installed by the electrician.

I installed this in my wifes She Shed where she does arts crafts and what not. The building is 12 x 24. I hung the heater from the ceiling so it's not in the way. It is more than sufficient to keep the building comfortable. I did the install by myself, took about an hour and a half but then again I'm pretty handy. The one drawback that I would mention is the lack of an on/off switch, but thermostat seems to work well. The wife is happy and as you guys know.........

I purchased two DR-966 heaters. I have a well insulated garage/shop at 20’ X 25’ with a 9’ ceiling. However the garage door is not a perfect seal but reasonable. Given that, my goal was to flip a switch and have reasonable warmth within a half hour- or so. I already know having four space heaters all set at the 1500W setting took several hours to heat the shop when temps are below freezing. Additionally, the space heaters take up floor space, are trip hazards, and consume power designated for the shop equipment. Yes, breakers have been tripped. I knew 12,000 watts of power would be a minimal amount of power to meet my heating goal. But it seemed a good place to start. I ceiling mounted these two heaters, wired em, fired em and could tell by air flow and heat output these two heaters seemed more than adequate to get the job done. I did spend a couple hundred to properly wire two circuits from the breaker box, complete with two 60 amp box switches, 240V 50 amp Receptacles and plugs, 8 gauge wire, 40 amp breakers, etc. If I were to change anything on the heaters, I’d prefer a terminal block for wire hookup rather than the pigtail hookup wires as currently configured. Also, within the wire cavity, there is an exposed pointy screw of which I screwed a small plastic drywall anchor onto so there would be no chance of piercing the resident wires. And all this just in time for summer! Otherwise, the heaters are of good quality, have a rugged feel, look good and have satisfactory output. But time will tell how good they are when they go into full service next winter. But I’m very pleased so far.

    Just what I was looking for: Puts out heat, runs quiet, and is easy to install. Would have given it five stars except for the thermostat sensor in the lower area. Even though I did wire to a remote thermostat, the heater still kept turning off too soon! I separated and lowerd the bottom plate with spacers as seen on YouTube and now it runs perfect.

    This thing puts out some heat! I love it. The fan is a little loud if you are going to put it in a house, but not bad. Mine is in my cabin and it works great! It calls for 8-2 wire and a 35 amp breaker. We are impressed

    First, this has to be hardwired to 240 volt line with 35 amp breaker. So your wire from panel to junction box must be 8 awg to be safe and comply with warranty. The unit itself doesn't draw more than 27 to 30 amps though. The line coming out of the unit is 10 awg. So, you may need an electrician to install. The instructions are confusing are odd. It tells you to run directly from panel (or sub-panel) to the unit and use the actual circuit breaker as an on/off switch. My electrician noted that was destined to wear out my breaker. I opted to attach a 10 awg cord to it that already had the Nema L6 plug attached. Then put a receptacle on the jbox. Works just fine and no issues with wires getting hot. But I found when you turn the temp dial all the way down it does click off. I guess the instructions are not up-to-date with the actual unit. I use this in my 2 car garage as I am a woodworking hobbyist. Heats it up nicely in about 15 min. Going on second month now. It seems well built and for the price, it was hard to beat. Before you buy, download instructions if you can so you can have a good idea of what you will need to do to properly install.
