Customer Reviews

Electric Utility Heater, 240VAC, kW 5.0/4.0, BtuH 17,060/11,378 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from We purchased 4 of these units in October 2016. After 4 months, 1 unit started tripping the breaker. 2 other units soon followed with tripping their breaker. Each unit had its individual breaker. BEWARE of units manufactured before 20150826. The fan delay relay will burn up. Newer units are manufactured without this relay. They also have a different fan ON/AUTO switch. The Cadet website has 2 versions of an owners manual. A parts diagram on the Cadet website shows the difference between the old & new units. Cadet should not have sold any of the old units when they knew they had a defect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fan Blades Not Aligned Hitting Shroud Received The Hot One heater, got it unpacked plugged in and fan doesn't work. The fan motor is not aligned in the opening of the shroud the blades hit the bottom and can't turn. Now I have a heater that doesn't work and have to wait for Northern Tool to contact your company for resolution. Not what I expected for something that costs over $300.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packs a lot of heat in a small form factor. When I first plugged it in I was disappointed. I expected that at a 240v the heater would throw out a very high temperature.What it does instead is much better; it move a lot of air fast so it DOES put out a lot of heat, but distributed through a lot of air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review-the hot one bought this last fall to help keep our old house's living room 'warm.' worked beautifully all winter. had it set to low heat and not very high on the setting. there are several other cadet in wall heaters to help keep our old house here on the farm around 50 degrees inside; unless we do some craft/hobbies and then we build a fire in the quadrafire wood stove.this heater worked beaufifully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from maintains a constant tempature supplies a reliable worry free heat source in my garage, should have bought this item years ago

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value and performance! I've had this heater in my large shop for over a year and couldn't be happier. It does a terrific job in keeping my shop warm when the outside temperatures drop to freezing and below. Even when the outside temperatures drop below zero, the heater keeps the shop warm enough to work in comfortably. I've found it easy to install, operate and it has been very reliable. Excellent value for the dollar! You won't go wrong with this heater....
