A halogen lamp which is located on the left side of the quartz elements. It’s a neat little feature that can light up a small space in front of the heater and can be swiveled. The heater itself can also be rotated up to 90 degrees (45 degrees either way). This is great news since it allows some flexibility once a fixed installation is complete.

The ceiling mount for this heater gives you extra safety, security, and floor space. Best of all, the adjustable tilting bracket for this heater lets you point the heater it in any direction to provide you with targeted warmth wherever you need it.

Control panel is confusing and poorly designed.
- HVAC Training 101
When it is mounted so high however it will not work well as it won’t provide enough heat. Also, what many users did not like about the heater is the built in light.

An Overview On Garage Heaters

There is nothing worse than a freezing cold garage when you just need to get some work done. Whether your time in there is limited or extended, you won’t regret investing in a garage heater. With a flip of the switch, your garage will be toasty warm and your motivation will sky rocket.

There are several things to consider before purchasing a garage heater: First, you need to look at appropriately-sized units for the size of your garage. For calculated perfection, the rule of thumb is 10 watts per square foot of space.  If you have an average single car garage, you will want to check out units that are below 5,000 watts or roughly 15,000 BTUs. Whereas, a two or three car garage will need a much more powerful heater with roughly 10,000 watts or 30,000 BTUs. Second, there are a few types of heaters on the market. Propane or gas powered heaters, electric heaters, and portable radiant heaters are among your choices. Depending on which energy source is most efficient for your budget, you can decide on the best one for you.
