Picked up a Cadet CGH402 heater that I ordered on line from Lowes. Delivered to store week sooner than expected, but that was great since I wanted to get finish on some boxes & it was going to be in 20’s tonight.
I’ve read many posts, blogs & ratings on heaters for garages & didn’t want to spend a fortune on something that wouldn’t be used too much. We’re in the mountains of Western NC, but it’s not below freezing that often & garage is insulated. So decided on this 240v, 4000w unit. I did have 220 line & outlets put in the garage a while ago.
My work space is in a bay behind one of two others so I’d like to have gotten the 5000w unit, but wiring wouldn’t handle it.
Not near enough time & information to rate appropriately, but it was ready to go out of the box. Temp was about 58 & ran this unit for about an hour & it was 66 in the work area. So I was able to get the last coat of finish on the boxes (lined up on the assembly table).
“To each his own” & “results may vary” but if you’re in a similar environment, may want to check into it. I’ll wait to give it a rating for a while.
