This is a great little garage heater. I bought it a few years ago at 150 and it can easily heat my uninsulated 500sq ft garage. Bought the warranty with it but never had to use it.

Not just 'do not plug these into an outlet strip' ... you will need to run a dedicated 30amp circuit.

It's the hardwired version anyway. You could probably splice in a 220 plug and run it to a wall outlet, but I've never see anyone with enough balls to try a 220 outlet strip.

I wired mine to a plug and then installed a 220 outlet. Honestly, its super easy but if you aren't familiar at all with electrical wiring probably better to hire someone. I did the math for the cost to run it 8 hours per day and it game to about 50 bucks per month. I only run it while I am in there so i probably spend 5-10 bucks a month working in a nice warm garage.

220 outlet strips are the norm in many parts of the world like Europe. Not for 30A service though.

That makes too much sense. You'll need to tone that down now for these new folks on SD.

Purchased one on Sunday, received yesterday. Shipping was $17.67 but I signed up for advantage membership for $39.99 and got free shipping. I ordered other stuff so shipping was $33.49 so I am $6.51 out now. The advantage membership will pay off very soon when I order again. One of reason of no buying stuff at Northern Tool was lack of free shipping. This is not an issue anymore.

This units is rated 5000 Watts. It takes 240V and consumption is 20.7 Amps I believe. You will need 30 Amp double pole breaker and 10 gauge wire (orange color outer insulation). This unit is very likely to be hard wired. You connect black wire to L1 and white wire to L2 connectors inside the heater (you can wrap black or red insulation tape over white wire to denote that this is hot and not neutral). Connect ground wire to ground with green ground screw. Now opposite side of cable, make sure there is no power in you panel/subpanel. Being electrocuted is not fun and you can get killed. Connect ground wire to ground bar in your panel/subpanel. Connect white and black wire to double pole breaker. Use black/red tape on white wire if desired.

I installed one 5000W Comfort Zone heater from previous deal from Fleet Farm in my workshop and now I am going to install the second unit in my garage. It feels nice to have a warm workshop/garage in winter. Definitely worth the money and installation time. Repped.

Any reason not to wire in a two pole 30 amp wall switch? I'm just getting my feet wet with wiring as a new homeowner.
