Review Title: Lovinit
Comments: Everything so far is as promised. Of course it is not winter yet so I don't really know how it is going to perform in the cold. I have to tell you I was a little worried when I ordered it. I read all of the feedback on this unit and had some concerns about installation and hook up. No fear. It was simple. It went right up where I wanted it and and looks great. I love the color. The thermostat could be a problem for someone needing to install it high; since it is on the back of the unit. I put mine at the minimum level indicated; after all heat does rise. I am sure I will enjoy it for a long time.

Review Title: Garage heater
Comments: I am very happy with our new Dimplex garage heater. It was very easy to install, and does a great job of keeping our un-insulated 14x20 garage warm. I have it set to maintain a temp of around 40 normally, then I can turn it up, and within 15 min the garage is warm enough to work in. Excellent product and excellent company to do business with.

Review Title: Little big man
Comments: My garage is 900sq feet. I insulate my garage this winter. It has turned out to be one of the coldest winters we've had in a long time. All I really wanted was something to keep that garage above freezing at night and 50 degrees while I'm working. I really didn't expect much more for how small the heater and the price, I thought I would give it a shot. Here's what happened. At my lowest setting my garage stays at 38 degrees and at my second high setting which I believe is 5 on the dial, gets to 68 in the front half of the garage and 64 at the back of the garage. It's an unbelievable little heater.

Review Title: Little package with big results
Comments: I have a 28X30 garage that is well insulated. I was a little concerned with the size of the heater but I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on a heat pump or something that needs to be vented. The temp this winter has been in the low teens with daytime highs in the low 20. It takes about 2 hrs in the morning to heat the garage to 60 degrees, with the settings a little over half way. I turn the heater off every night, which most likely is why it takes 2 hrs to heat up. I believe if I turned the thermostat up all the way the garage could reach 75 degrees.

Review Title: Electric Garage Heater
Comments: Well packed for shipping. Arrived rapidly. Easy to install. So far it works well. The fan is a little noisy I assume because it is a small diameter fan and needs higher RPMs to push the air. Would be nice to have terminals for an external thermostat. Directions are not included nor are they really needed for someone with basic electrical experience. No sign of any kind of warranty.

Review Title: This is a good garage heater
Comments: although i had to go back and insulate my garage, which i needed to do anyway, i feel this heater works great. i have a two car garage in the midwest where the winters are very cold. i installed two of these, and my garage gets to about 60 in the working area and in the upper 70's in the rafters even when it is near zero outside. i guess now i should put some kind of a fan in the rafters and it would be even warmer.

Review Title: Great alternative for gas or propane
Comments: Pretty small but effective heater. I was looking for an electric heater cuz I didn't wanna add an exhaust duct or another fuel source. Installation was easy even thought the directions weren't all that great. The fan is quiet and heats up my 25X26 garage, or at least takes the edge off when it's below zero windchill.

Review Title: A nice little heater!
Comments: I purchased this heater for my garage which is about 400 square feet. It is compact and easy to install if you have some electrical knowledge. It works nicely so far. I have run the unit at setting 4 (of 5) and it is comfortable. I purchased it to keep the garage around 50 degrees thru the winter occasionally a little higher if I am working in there. A nice unit for small spaces like mine.

Review Title: Dimplex CUH05B31T Electric Garage Heater
Comments: The unit does as advertised and works amazingly well for such a small one. It heats our small shop in a very few minutes although we have not had any really cold weather yet. It was simple to install and lighter weight then the competitor's model. I tried another company's heater and had to send one back because the fan did not work up to speed and the other because it did not work at all.

Review Title: Elec. Garage Heater
Comments: Shipping was great - well packed. Seems to be a nice set-up & well made. Was easy to install, fairly quiet. Don't how well it heats yet, the weather is 90 degrees plus right now. The only thing I would change is the owner's manual is not very informative on the actual operation and functional features. There needs to be a note for the electrical on the wire size and amp. draw etc..

Review Title: Great heater for a small basement
Comments: A very compact and quiet heater for my basement work area, which has always been about 55 degrees. I now heat it up to about 70 degrees and use the area far more than before. The thermostat could be a little more sensitive and not stay on for long periods and then off for long periods. Otherwise I love it.

Comments: Does a good job heating our single car garage. Monthly utility has gone up more than expected but, it's still far less than we would have paid for heated storage unit. Thinking about hooking it up to an actual thermostat so we can keep it at 45 degrees all the time, the built in dial varies a bit.

I have it mounted on a wall & the dial for the temperature control is a little awkward to get to & I'm fumbling blind for it, but it's not too bad. I have no regrets in buying this heater.

Review Title: The Best Purchase I Have Made In Years!!!
Comments: I have had a studio workspace in my garage for 12 years. Every winter it was bitter cold in there and I was wasting electricity with small space heaters which had to be run constantly and were very ineffective. This reasonably priced heater is a powerhouse that doesn't need to run constantly but gets the job done. Thanks to the Dimplex, I'll never be cold again. Many thanks to Air-n-Water.com.
