should only need one monoflow tee, are you sure you have it piped correctly, going in the right direction? sorry, just got this email, hopefully you figured it out by now.
The answer is no.But allow me to add that the both the fan and the BTU capacity of kick space heaters is rather low, by design. As such there is just not that much air moving through the coil that it would need protection or that it would pull in that much dust. However I would always recommend that these units be installed with hose kits rather than rigid tube. The hose kits allow for the unit to be pulled out and serviced. This is a better option than cutting the cabinet base and accessing the unit from above.
There is nothing that prevents you from installing multiple kick space heaters. I had a customer years ago that used only kick space heaters to heat an entire house. I still think that was strange and unnecessarily complex and costly; but to each there own. However keep this in mind. Kickspace heaters have ½” connections. Most heating lines are ¾”. As a result they are typically piped in configuration called a monoflo loop. This old school way of piping is a little counter intuitive and is part of the forgotten art of plumbing hydronic systems. So if you do two heaters you want to make sure they are piped in a thoughtful manor. If not piped correctly you may have one unit that comes on all the time and one that never comes on. If you would like to have a conversation about your project give me a call and we can have a conversation. You never know there may be a simpler way to achieve your goals. Chris 978 651 3301
Sorry but I am confused. Are you asking if we still carry the Quiet One unit? If so, Yes Home Depot still sells it on line and in some of its stores. Home Depot also sells some Myson units on line. If your unit is getting noisy than the bearings on the blower wheel may have worn out. You may want to call Myson at 1 800 698 9690 and see if either the bearings or a replacement blower are available for your unit. As a plumber I have changed both over the years and it can be a lot less expensive and easier to repair a kick space heater versus changing it. I have a Beacon Morris unit in my home and it has been there sense the mid 80’s. I change the blower motor every ten years. As the blower assembly is essentially the only moving part in a kick space heater by changing it I essentially have a brand new unit when I do this.
The grill isn't removable, but it can be ordered in white, chrome, gold, and silver
I installed two of these in my kitchen in 1992. When I sold the house in 2015 they were still working. Never a leak or a problem. We kept in touch with the new owners and they still work fine after 27 years. I'm not saying they're bullet proof but my experience with them has been good.
Yes, the unit has a fixed (non-adjustable) thermostat which triggers the fan The fan can be set to off/low/high.
Yes thats correct
Tim this unit does not use fuel at all. Or you could say the fuel is 180F boiler water. The people auditinig Home Depot's web site don;t like empty subject lines in there product details matix so they sometimes edit the listings by mistake. I will get this corrected and thanks for pointing it out.
