This heater works good in green house. It does not get real warm but keeps it a very even temperture.
Expected more heat from unit

I purchased it to heat an insulated garage approx. 30ft x 15ft when I'm working in there. I expected a more effeciant heating capablilty and was disapointed. the heating element doesn't nearly get as warm as a 240 volt, 4000w heater should in my opinion.
Poor source of heat for even small space

won't heat a 10'x12' workshop; had to install a new 220 line just to get heater close enough to where I was working. Too much money for too little heat.
I have used this model heater for years.

BEST LITTLE HEATER FOR THE MONEY

I use these heaters in 1500 sq. ft. apartments when I finish drywall. Heats well and quickly. I would not be without them. Thanks for a great product.
Lots of air flow, but not much heat

When I ordered this heater, I had high hopes for using it during the winter months in my small shop area within my 2-car garage. However, I have really been disappointed with this heater in that it has very little heat output for being a 240VAC unit supposedly rated at 13,648 BTU. While it does have a fairly powerful fan that puts out quite a bit of air flow, this ends up being a negative in that once you get as little as 1 to 2 feet away from the output of the heater, you no longer feel any heat and instead just get the effects of a cold stream of air (such that it's more like a "windchill machine" instead of being a heater). I honestly feel that some of my much cheaper 120VAC residential space heaters put out more heat than this more costly industrial unit. My suggestion would be to save your money on this unit and get something better (even if it ends up costing more).

Fortunately, we have an electrician in the house who could bypass the low-temp shut-off. Works great.
great for smaller and average size space
