from Gunnison UT
" The heater showed up and looked as it should. The installatin was easy due to my construction back ground. When it came to lighting it i was a bit frustrated. I couldn't make it light. Come to find out the knob on the top that is for the pilot possition it was not on correctly i had to have it almost in the off possition to get the pilot to light so the knob (dial) is of by a few degrees. Other than that it works well for the room that i have it in. "

Doing the job

,

By RiK1
from New York
" This heater is doing the job it was intended for and as advertized by Northern Tool. Heating the studio space in our garage. This space is used by my wife as a studio and is quite comfortable . We keep the setting on low and it has no trouble heating a 216 square space. Price was right, came on time, installation went according to plan. We also purchased the larger unit for another area of the garage. Blower could be set up to blow either way. Thanks Northern, RiK in New York "

Good heater

,
January 22, 2010
By Motel
from NJ
" I own a motel and I recently purchased three of these heaters. They work great and heat the 200square foot rooms very easily. It is very quiet and puts out a nice constant heat. Only reason I put 4 stars instead of five stars was because of the plastic knobs are kind of low quality and I could see them breaking easily. One of them got stuck and I almost broke it trying to unstick it. Other then that they are solid and built very well. I will definitly be buying more of these for the other rooms. Installation was a breeze. I would suggest cutting the tubes long tho and sniping them smaller as needed. Great product. "

efficient small heater

,
December 26, 2009
By DRGW463
from Chama,NM
" This heater is very efficient for a small heater. The thru the wall chimney actually has an intake for combustion. The combustion chamber is sealed with a small glass window for viewing the pilot and heating flame. The enclosed manual says the efficiency is 81%. Simple unit to install other than cutting a hole in the wall for the chimney. I put this unit in a bedroom. It looks good and takes up hardly any space. With the sealed combustion, it has an oxygen sensor for additional safety. Also, when the power goes out in a storm , this will be keeping things cozy. "

Installed Last Year

,
October 23, 2009
By SueN
from Seattle, WA
" We installed this in a small bedroom last year to replace the existing unit gas heater. It works great, not the most energy efficient but does the job. It is installed in one of our rental units. Looks better than some of the others on the market. Would prefer the Rinnai (sp?) for looks and function but it is so much more expensive, this seemed like a good compromise.
We bought it through Northern Tool and it arrived quickly in the timeframe described. "
