It Has Been Cold

" I bought one of these units to put in my fifth wheel while hunting this season. The unit ran without any difficulity and I ran it 24/7. I found that if ambient temp outside was in the mid-40's I could set the thermostat in the camper at 56 and the furnace would not turn on. Once temperatures got below 10 degrees, the furnace would have to supplement the ProFusion. The fan makes "moderate" noise, that is, it is not "silent". I am not sure if I am satisfied with the heat output but maybe it was just too darn cold this season. I would recommend as the price point is good and I had no trouble running the unit for 6 straight weeks. The unit was never hot to touch and I did not worry about operation. Has a responsive remote control unit. Northern delivered fast as usual. I rate as average only because it I was not blown away by heat output. The unit did about what I thought it would do. At home it does a good job in kitchen as this room has better insulation. I still run it 24/7 but one should be prepared for increase in electric bill. "
