Power (Voltage) All of our Garage heaters come in 240 volts.
VOLTAGE IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN IT COMES TO ELECTRIC HEATERS , if you buy the wrong voltage heater the following will happen. If your electrical wire only conducts 120 volts and your heater is rated for 240v you will only get ¼ of the wattage [heat]. If your electrical wire conducts 240 volts and your heater is rated for 120 volts, you will burn out the heater and void the warranty. If you are not sure on your voltage you will want to consult a licensed electrician
Quick tip 110 volts, 115 volts, 120 volts, 125 volts (All four voltages will work with the same heater) 220 volts, 230 volts, 240 volts, 250 volts (All four voltages will work with the same heater) 208 volts is NOT the same as 240 volts
Room Coverage - This is the maximum room size. this square footage is based on the assumption that your garage is fully insulated. Example room size = 20 ft x 20 ft = 400 sq. ft.
Heat Output (watts) or wattage is a measure of electric power. Each space heater heat output is based on watts... . 1,000 Watts = 1 Kilowatt. One kilowatt will produce 3,412 BTU of heat in one hour…
Quick Tip if a heater has a wattage greater then 1500 watts it must be a 240v heater
CFM - Cubic feet per minute, this is one of the ways heaters are sized. One is wattage (BTU's) and cfm of air flow. You will notice that note all heaters will the same wattage have the same CFM. As a rule the heavy duty unit heaters have a higher CFM.
Thermostat All heaters need a controller to turn the heater on or off, and to adjust the temperature setting. There are a number of options.
Built-in thermostat This heater has a knob mounted on the outside of the heater; it does not have a temperature display. You operate it by turning the knob clockwise to turn the power and set the desired room temperature. This may require a few adjustments until you are satisfied with the room temperature. Turn it counterclockwise and you will lower the temperature.
Wall Mounted Thermostats are not available on all heaters. The are usually mounted on the other side of the room from your heater, once you set the desired room temperature it will cycle the heater on and off to accommodate your wish.
Wall mounted thermostats come in three styles (1) mechanical (old fashion dial) (2) digital or (3) digital programmable. All three versions work, but the digital or digital programmable are more energy efficient and accurate the digital models give you a more accurate temperature setting. A programmable thermostat works with a clock, which allows you the ability to lower and raise the room temperature during the day and week.
