What reviewers didn't like

Occasional reports of faulty thermostat.
I wish this unit was hard-wired. Although it produces lots of heat, this limitation makes it look like a poorly designed heater.
However, if you have an exceptionally large garage or a three-car garage – then you may need to purchase two of this heater.
