Nice little unit.Monday, February 28, 2011
I had been wanting a heater for my garage for the longest time and this unit looked good enough to take a gamble on. I was going to do gas, but just didnt want all of the hassle to install it when I had 220v already run in the garage. When it was 0 deg. outside and 25 deg. inside, it warmed it up to 60 in 1 hr. and 75 in another 30 mins. Granted the area I am actively heating is only 13 x 26, and it is insulated and drywalled. It still felt a little cold because the concrete was freezing, so i turned the thermostat way down and let it go for a week. At around 1/5 or less of the dial, the garage was holding at 52 degrees once the concrete was warmed up and it was 0 or colder the whole time outside. Once the concrete was warmed up the heater would run almost exactly every 30 mins for 4 mins each time. I calculated that it should cost around $30-35 to heat the garage all the time. I only saw about a $10 increase, but maybe my billing is a month behind. I look forward to the once or twice a year I could heat the whole 32x26 garage. Im sure it will take longer to take the chill off, but with a little time it could be very comfortable. I just know im not taxing it at all presently. All in all a great little heater. If you have to heat a 3 stall all the time, you may want two, but its cheap enough you could do that.
small size, thermostat on the front, ability to use as a fan to circulate the air if necessary.
Would be nice if a bracket to mount on the wall came with it. I know its nice to move it around, but also nice if its out of the way.
