Stelpro Spider Ceiling Fan Heater for Garage - 4000 W - 240 V - Red is rated
Rated 4 out of
Solid and attractive heater for residential garage
I looked for a longtime having planned to install a natural gas heater in our 2 car home garage (about 20x20). Finally insulated and drywalled etc and decided to initially purchase this Stelpro Spider garage heater. Excellent heater, works very well, heats the garage quickly and reasonably quietly. Some reviews on other sites claim this heater works well but that they experience a lot of noise from vibration; those reviewers likely don't read the fine print in manuals/documentation. The 2 screw installation bracket does leave a lot for vibration, BUT if you read the manual there are 3 screw holes that you can use your own no. 8 screws to help with vibration - I used 2 of those screw holes and all is quiet and performing well. One other thing, I purchased the Stelpro zigbee smart home thermostat to control this heater - you MUST go into advanced settings and select "fan heater" as "on" otherwise this unit will be turning on and off frequently. Bottom line, very attractive in the garage, out of the way centre ceiling mount downward firing/blowing design, if you follow the detailed instructions it will be a gem. very happy after a lot of research, may not change to gas later as we had originally planned; our temporary plan may be permanent.
