Most comfort features for a reasonably priced garage heater: movable air vanes, delayed fan on (no cold air until heat element is ready), delayed fan off (cools down heat element to prolong life).

The Fahrenheat FUH54 has an excellent track record for outperforming similar heaters from other makers, and has proven to be reliable after many years of operation.

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

Does it require 110 or 220 electrical?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2013
Best Answer: 220 W. They may make other models that are 110, but this one is 220.

I'm looking to heat my insulated garage (25x35) to keep it above freezing during a Wisconsin winter with this electric heater kept on the low setting all winter long. Does anyone have experience of how much that would increase my electric bill?
Pat K on Dec 10, 2013
Best Answer: I have the 7500W and a 20X26 garage with a 9 foot ceiling and only have it turned up less than 1/4 max. It is about 65 in there and it feels like 80. It's 10 degrees out with a minus 9 wind chill. My electric bill went up less than $10 a month......if that.

I have one of these and it quit working. about five years old or so. Fahrenheat FUH5-4.

Has 110v to each pole in the heater but wont work

any thought?
Bill h on Jan 22, 2014
Best Answer: 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.

Best Answer: This heater is electric, so no venting is needed. There is a fan in the back of the unit that draws air and blows it across the heated coils to push heated air out the front of the unit. We installed two in a 20X 30 insulated shop. They do the job and keep the place warm in the winter when heat is needed.

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?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

Is this 110 volt or 220?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2013
Best Answer: This is a 220 volt- we had to have our electrician put in a separate 220 outlet. Heater works great. Heats up a large 2 car garage throughout New York winters.

Can you add auto matic thermostate wall mount? Do you know were to purchase , what brand, possible cost. have bad leg and diff to climb to make thermostat changes if in ceiling......thks
Wayne S on Feb 10, 2014
Best Answer: I did have a thermostat with on/off switch added on to the wall below the unit and it works great. My work man installed it and he just purchased whatever was available at the local ACE hardware store, nothing fancy. I use 2 units in my restaurant and I could not be more satisfied. I would highly recommend the product.

Best Answer: are hardwired (not plug in) 240 (aka 220v) volt heaters. So, you'd need a dedicated double pole circuit breaker
