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 Nov 11, 2013
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. Nov 11, 2013
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.

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.

I have a 20x22 well insulated garage with 10' hogh ceilings.The 5000w unit is more than adequate. I am very pleased with it so much so I recommended it to my brother inlaw. He also is going to purchase the same unit. Nov 11, 2013
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. Dec 19, 2013
Hope this helps, it's a very nice heater.

Has 110v to each pole in the heater but wont work
any thought? Jan 22, 2014
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. Feb 6, 2014
