Q & A
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
Has 110v to each pole in the heater but wont work
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.
I thought about doing that, decided against it due to the cost of the plug vs how often it has to be moved.
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.
Thanks for any help you may offer !
2. The description of the whip conductors is perplexing too; this 240 volt heater should be attached to a whip that contains a black (hot conductor 1), a red (hot conductor 2), a white ('neutral'), and either a bare ground or green ground wire. There shouldn't be two black wires as well as a red wire (in addition to a white and green/bare wire).
3. Considering the nature of your question and description of the existing wiring, I would hire an electrician so the heater is installed correctly and safely.
What is the voltage? is it variable?
How big of an area can be heated?
- temperature dial ranges from approximately 45 degrees to 135 degrees
