When will this heater be available

Answer

I do not know when this heater will be available. I am a customer and not a Home Depot representative. Please call your Home Depot store and ask for Customer Service. They should be able to assist you.

how loud is this unit?

From an online description: Quiet Running One of the best features of the heater is that it runs very quietly. Some garage heaters are very noisy or have a distracting hum to them when in use. The 1874-5000W Heavy Duty garage heater does not make any disturbing noise when in use. In fact, if it were not for feeling the heat in the garage, you would not know it is working.

My heater heats and does not shut off. How do I fix this?

It has a built in thermostat in the unit itself. So 1 of 2 things: The thermostat is bad and no longer working OR depending on the area you're trying to heat, this unit may not cover the amount of square footage you're trying to heat and therefore the heater will never turn off automatically because it can't reach the desired temperature you're trying to achieve.

I also noted the discrepancy in the recommended wire. I did run 25' of #10 from a 30 amp 240v breaker. Seems to work just fine.

Can someone tell me the difference between this and the $95 Comfort Zone 5000w Heater? They look exactly the same.

Asked by Jor May 27, 2020

The difference is MADE IN THE USA by Marley. Much better quality than the china made one.

Could you hook a timer into this, if left at a certain desired temp setting?

Asked by DL March 25, 2020

Answers

Not advised. The heater is designed to shut itself down when selected temp is reached by shutting off the heating elements and running the fan to cool the elements before cycling off. If you choose to set a timer it would greatly affect the life off the unit by shutting off mid cycle not allowing it to cool properly.

The U-shaped bracket that comes with the heater only allows it to be tilted up/down. To rotate the unit, you would need some kind of custom carousel that is not part of the unit. I do not know where to even look for one.

This is an excellent little heater for my business! I have a 600+ sq ft art studio. I had to have a custom-made bracket in order to hang it from my ceiling, and then I had an electrician come in and hard wire it. It heated up the space relatively fast and shut off when the desired heat was reached. You'll need a thermometer because the knob does not have temps on it, just lo, med, hi. I was going to have a thermostat put in-line, but after finding out it has rheostat and it was advised against it, I just left it as is. I also love the adjustable fins so I can direct the air where I want it. It's also much quieter than I though it would be, which is a definite plus! The only down-fall is that I have to get up on a ladder to change the settings because my ceiling is tall - I hate ladders!! Other than that, it's fantastic! I highly recommend this little workhorse!

Installed this in my 2 car garage and works fantastic. On the low setting in keeps the temperature around 60 degrees without any problem. Few weeks ago it was 26 degrees outside and a comfortable 60 degrees inside. I worked in the garage that weekend and had in at 70 degrees within 15 minutes. See attached install photo.

Installed for a 22' x 22' x 7.5' two-car insulated garage and seems to be able to raise the temperature from +50 °F to +60 °F while outside temp at +10 °F in about 30 min with dial set on "Lo". The output was stepped down to 4165W which seems to keep the fan speed on low. The floors in the rooms above the garage are warmer as well. We ran a new 10 gauge line and 30A breaker from the service panel. But, it was simple enough for us as we had removable access panels to route wire without snaking. So far, it works well enough to just take the edge off the very cold days while working in the garage.

Pulls 21 amps when running and works great to warm my uninsulated 900sq ft garage when temps are in the 20-30deg range. It doesn't get colder than that where I live so haven't tested in colder temps.

Outstanding Heater!! I have a 2 car insulated garage and needed to get some heat in there to work on my vehicles and to work out. This heater does the job and more. It provides a very comfortable climate. At times it gets too hot that I have to turn it down. This winter has been extremely cold in Michigan. It was a great test for this heater which it passed with flying colors. Brace yourself when your electric bill comes in. It's going to be higher than normal but I can't complain. Worth every penny that I paid for the heater and to have an electrician wire it. A wood stove was not an option for me. Might have been cheaper, but Safety First is my motto.
