steve g asked: 20 by 20 well insulated garage... 5000w enough? Nov 8, 2013

Kenneth M: Hello Steve:

My garage is about the same size, 20x24. So far the coldest temps we had in NJ this year has been 40ish. On the LOW thermostat setting, it took the entire garage up to 64 in about 20 minutes. The thermostat kicked back in every 15 minutes or so and ran for a couple of minutes. In my opinion it works great. I hardwired an on/off switch to the back so it can ben disabled and added a red indicator light to the front so I can easily know if it has power. There are a couple of hash marks on the thermostat below LOW. I'm hoping I can set it to maintain 45 or 50 over the winter to prevent paint cans from freezing. In summary, a very good unit probably capable of handling a room twice the size. I hope this info is helpful. Thanks

John S: I have mine in a 16x12 insulated workshop with cathedral ceiling and it heats it pretty well. If I crank it up it would certainly get my building hot, but I have simply kept it on the "Low" setting so it takes the bite out of the air and its been perfect.

I chose electric heat because I only need to heat the space when I'm actually out there on weekends. Otherwise, I keep the building cold soI didn't want to deal with frozen water pipes or hooking up gas lines. Easy on and easy off was the key decision for me on this unit.

I hope this helps.

Jerry P: I would have to guess about the answer since my space is only a well insulated 6 x 16 space but my guess would be yes. I say yes because I only have it set 2 notches past LO and it keeps my space at 70 even when it is 25 outside. I would be confident it can keep your space around 70 even down into the 20's or possibly lower. Nov 11, 2013

Troy O: I think so, I have a 25 x 35 with 10 ft celing and it puts out enough heat to make it comfortable on a cold day (about zero out) there is probably a cold spot on the far end of the garage but I point it where I work and keep the insulated doors closed. I only use mine when I'm working out there but it's been great so far. Nov 11, 2013

Angelo B: Steve,

My garage is 20 X 30 and not very well insulated but the heater works great. Typically I set the thermostat on "low" and am able to work comfortably in my shop. Our home is located in the Seattle area so the outside temperatures are seldom below freezing.

John F: yes, this does do a good job of heating that area. of course I have it above and pointed right at my work area so I get more than enough heat. I usually leave it in a moderate to low heat setting. I live at 9000 feet in Colorado so it gets cold outside. Nov 11, 2013

Timothy R: Steve,
My workshop is 18'x20", 100 years old, uninsulated and my heater does a very good job keeping the work area very comfortable even when the temps drop a little below the zero mark. You should have no problem with this heater.

steve s: If the ceiling is closed off and insulated and the walls are insulated too then it will be ok. My garage has has insulated walls but the ceiling is open to the eaves and it's 24'x24' so it struggles to warm the entire room. Nov 11, 2013

Rick D: My garage is 20 X 25 and I have the 5000 watt heater. After initial warm-up I have to turn my heater down to the low setting. The garage stays warm at that point. Best heater I have found for the money. You'll be pleased! Nov 11, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm considering getting this 5000W electric heater to heat my new garage 25' x 35'. The walls and ceiling will be insulated. I want to be able to always keep the temp above freezing in the garage during a Wisconsin winter by keeping it set on the lowest setting. Does anyone have experience with using this heater in that way and how much it increases your electric bill? Dec 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David W: Best way to run it is to install an external thermostat which will manage the operation of the heater better than the built in one which is pretty crude.
You can't guest the cost of increased heating because every jurisdiction charges a different rate. I imagine that in Wisconsin in the middle of winter it would cost you at least $50/month at say 50d, but it's simply a guest.
To calculate the therms you would use you have to run an energy audit that would calculate the cost based upon the cubic feet of the garage, R factor of the insulation and the desired temperature times the kilowatt hour rate that you're paying.

Louis H: I bought one of these to do exactly as you described. I'm in the Mountains of Pennsylvania and use this to keep a 25x30 pole building (insulated with 2" foam board and sheet rocked)above freezing. I have it set to maintain 45*. It works just fine. When I'm going to work out there I use a kerosene heater to bring it up to 65-70* then use the electric to maintain it. This little heater would take a LONG time to raise temperature, but it does a good job of maintaining it. It added about $60 per month to my electric bill. Dec 19, 2013

Jeff B: This will easily heat your garage. You may want to install a remote thermostat but it isn't necessary. As far as cost-look at your total dollar amount of your bill and divide it by your KWH used. This will probably be around .12 per KWH. For example if your bill is $180 and you used 1500 KWH you paid .12 total per KWH. This is a 5000 watt heater. If you ran that for one hour it is 5 KWH or .60 for each hour. Dec 20, 2013

KEVIN p: The heater work nice, the 5000w probably would not be big enough for a garage that big. You could have two, one on opposite ends of the garage. Even the 7500 w alone may not be big enough. A new garage should be insulated well, but that is a big area for one little heater. They seem to operate fairly cheap, I cannot tell you the actual cost Dec 19, 2013

KEVIN p: If you do have 220 or 240 between line 1 and line 2 at the unit, then it appears thr problem is at the unit,
coulld be the thermostat ?

If it has a contactor, is it pulled in? If not then there is
a control problem. If you are skilled and confident you
could simply push the contactor in and it should
operate or have an electrician do it. Most of the time
you can bypass the thermostat and close the
contactor that way.

I haven't had any problems so far with mine.
