Normally you will have four wires in the cord: a red, a black, awhite and a green. The red and black are the hot or power wires the white is the neutral and the green is ground. Purchase a plug that matches your outlet pattern (that will plug in). Shut off the circuit breaker that feeds the outlet and remove the cover. strip the insulation back on the cord, determine which wire goes to which lug or terminal and connect the wires to the plug. reassemble the outlet and the plug, turn on the circuit and test. If all of this is greek to you, call a local electrician and pay them the $50 to $80 to put the plug on for you, its safer that way.

Tip

Underfloor Radiant Heating for Your New Sunroom


You want to add a brand new sunroom onto your existing house. The problem is that you are not sure how to heat it. Electric heating with baseboard heaters will spoil the look that you want from your new room. Hot water baseboard is going to present all types of problems getting hooked in to the existing system and piping it. And, if you have hot air heating system then you will have the problem of getting ductwork to the room. There is another way to heat this room easily and efficiently.

Radiant heating has been one of the most comfortable and efficient ways for heating for many years. The problem has been in the past to find a good heating source for small radiant floors that will be affordable, effective and efficient.

This problem has been solved now, with the availability of small new electric combination heater- circulator units. These units use small electric heating elements together with a small circulator pump to give you a all in one heating source and circulator pump.

Now you just have to lay your tubing in the floor of the room you are adding on to your house. Then you run that tubing into your existing basement or other room in your house. The tubing and the electric are attached to the heating unit. Then, wire a thermostat to the unit, and you are now ready to make heat. This really makes heating a new addition room very inexpensive and easy to do.

The greatest thing about using this type of heating system is that most average do-it-yourself types can do this. All that is needed is a basic knowledge of plumbing and electric.
If you are thinking of building that little add-on and are worried about how you will heat it, think about using radiant floor heat and a small electric heater-circulator to do your project.

Not sure if a blower is in this model because feel no air comeing from unit


The blower is/was a $69.00 optional add on feature for that heater. To be quite honest, a blower does little on an Infrared Heater. Infrared, unlike Blue Flame Convection Heaters, doesn't waste energy heating the air. It heats objects (floor, walls, furniture, etc). From that the room air heats up. Simply put, it heats a room like the sun heats the earth. It's really more efficient than a gas convection heater. Rated 99.9% efficient at 15,000 Btu's, it will heat a good sized room easily.

I've selling these heaters for several years and I always try to talk the customer out f wasting their money on a blower. It's simply not needed on an infrared heater.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

A friend gave me the Pelonis heater. It looks brand new, but I do not have the manual or no how to use it, other than just plugging it in. Is there anything I need to do to?


There are two knobs on it and two selector switches.

The switches you can switch on only one for half power and two for full power.

One knob is the most important the thermostat which set the maximum temperature to reach in the room and when it reached it switch off the heating elements. Adjust to most comfortable one for you, it is not in degrees scale but in number 1-9 but you can test it and decide.

Final the knob that has all these small teeth

Pilot light wan't stay light


The most common problem would be the thermocouple is bad. The thermocouple sends a small current from the pillot light to the safety shut off valve. When it goes bad, the valve doesn't receive a signal, so it shuts the valve and keeps the heater from leaking gas into the room. The thermocouple is easy to change. It is the little copper wire you see that runs from the pilot light assembly to the valev housing. It just unscrews. I would take it with you to the parts store, because they come in different lenghts. Hope this helps...

Electric baseboard heaters


measure the room, then multiply the length by the width to get the square feet you want to heat. multiply this by 10 and that is the watts you need to heat the room assuming you are using standard 220/240v baseboards.

My Vornado TouchStone Vortex heat 500 Heater - temperature


After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.

If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.
Thank you.
