Also look out for the volts. An electric unit is 220V and you will need heavy wire to power it. A gas furnace has a 110V motor and you can run it off an existing circit.

The Heating and cooling companys usually have a pile of dead units out back. I had to by a start capacitor for mine but fairly minor deal.

I actually ran a seperate circite for mine with a switch by the door and hung it in the gable end to move air thru the shop in the summer.

Good luck
