I got this up and running just in time to combat the freezing weather and snow this week, and I can report that this small package keeps my 500 sq ft barn/shop at a comfortable temperature when I am working. It is quiet yet moves alot of warm air around the shop. I would recommend it.
So I didn't rate the quality excellent, but for the money I don't think you're going to beat it. It runs more quietly than my electric heater that was twice as much and this one has more heating power. I have a 3 car garage and it is able to warm up the space quite well. It takes a while to heat but again, it's not a replacement for 40k BTU natural gas heater. Don't expect this to be as quiet as your home forced air furnace. As fan heaters go however, it is quite reasonable and easy to talk without having to raise your voice because of it. I wish I was aware of this heater five years ago when I paid twice as much for another heater I have.
This heater doesn't plug into your average 240v outlet. I'm sure most guys reading this are already aware of that but I wasn't (cuz I'm not a guy) when I purchased it for my husband. After having installed the correct outlet, my husband is very, very happy with the performance of this heater in his garage.
THIS HEATER IS FANTASTIC! IT REALLY HEATS UP THE THE BASEMENT AREA IN QUICK TIME AND CYCLES ON AND OFF. IT CONSUMES QUITE A BIT OF ELECTRICITY, SO USE IT SPARINGLY...
