Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Didn’t understand it required 220volt. Not on website. Trying to return it but you are not taking returns. Very frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and great heat I've had this model for a few years now, and it's performed flawlessly. Realizing that 4800 watts isn't powerful enough, I used it to help heat my 100 year old, 2-1/2 car uninsulated garage. I'd first heat it up with my 35000 BTU propane unit, then turn on the DCH4831 and shut off the propane. It has performed perfectly and keeps the temp good enough to wear a t-shirt out there in 20 degree weather. If I had the power capability, I'd get another one and forgo the propane altogether. If you have a well insulated building, this might just do the trick for you. Highly recommend!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Bought this two years ago and have used it sparingly. Now it will run for 1 hour then the Thermal cut out light comes on and it blows cold air. I reset it by unplugging and waiting 5 minutes as it says in the manual but this does not slolve the problem. It was installed by a journeyman electrician,following the building code and the supplied instructions. I would not recommend this heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent heater Does the job I need....small workshop 12 x 16...Wanted to work in the cold weather...so I insulted with 2  inch blue styrofoam....and had this heated installed.. Only thing was...that the electrician put the heater near the ceiling...so the thermostat would stop the heater to quickly...so lowered the heat by putting it on a swivel arm...now it heats much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expections Bought 3 weeks ago to warm up garage on occasional basis. Our garage is approx 650 sf, 9 ft ceiling, insulated, but 2 somewhat leaky doors. Used 2 days, o/s temp around freezing, increased to around 10 degrees C with heating time of approx 1 hr each day. Cost only approx $1 each day. Very happy to have to take off the chill, when needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little shop heater. Great for heating a shop or work area. Adjustable thermostat which is perfect for making slight modification in temperature for the space that you are heating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater Review (Don’t Buy) The unit was only used 10-12 times but after 1 year and 1 week, the heater stopped working. You guessed it, the heater has a (1) year warranty and the Home Depot manager told me I was SOL and would not stand behind the product they sold me. Thanks, Home Depot. Its good to know just where you stand on customer service, off to the side and in the shadows

would this heater be good to heat my 12 x 14 shed fully insulated in temps up to -30 degrees celsius during winter

Asked by: matt
Yes, I use them to heat up to 1400sqft per heater in new home construction. Just make sure you have the 240v power required.

How do you plug this in? We need it for a drywall job in a house but there aren't dryer outlets in the bedrooms, of course, so how in the world can this be plugged in? I have scoured the internet looking for an appropriate adapter and found nothing!

Asked by: ColdDrywall20
This heater is 240 volt and will not work on a 120 volt circuit or a 15 amp breaker. It works very well but requires 4800 watts of power. Engage your electrician.

How noisy is this unit - i.e., can I have it running while carrying a not-loud conversation?

Asked by: nshani
Have no idea what PCM of 160 is - maybe 160 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute)? In any case, it's relatively quiet, especially when compared (and I did compare) to other box-style space heaters from another store (IIRC, rated @ 300 CFM). It all boils down to blade design & motor speed. One annoying thing is the initial metal rattling that I believe is the result of the heating element holder not holding it tight (if it can, due to expansion?).

What’s the maximum temperature we can get from this heater? 

Asked by: Sam Joseph
That depends on so many things but for instance I hook it into a generator and use it to heat my 16x24 hunting cabin to 65 degrees in the winter.

I have a 240V circuit with 30 amp breaker and wire (6 gauge), but a 240V 20 amp recepticle. Will that be ok for the 4800 watt Dimplex heater? Or do I need the 4000 watt model?
Asked by: NVdan
Good Day NVdan, You need a 240V with a 30amp breake for the construction heater. Thank You Glen Dimplex Americas Customer Service
