Laser 30 model won't heat my 24'x24' Garage?

I have a Laser 30 in a brand new 24'x24' garage with 9' ceiling, 2"x6" walls(R20) and R40 ceiling. Building is well insulated and very tight. It's been -15 to -20 celsius here lately and it will only make 50 degrees F inside. It is on the high setting and runs steady to do this. Is there something wrong with the heater or is it too small for the application? Randy

Re: Laser 30 model won't heat my 24'x24' Garage?

I had the Laser 30 serviced a few days ago, and it works properly now. the burner pot was very sooted up, hard crust of carbon in the bottom inch or better which was drasticlly cutting down the heat output(at least 50 per cent) Also put a new fuel pump in and now it puts out a lot more heat. Would strongly advise that these are service at least every two years. Randy

Heating and cooling is rated in btu.or could be watts.for your space to be heated quickly to say 70 deg f. you may need a heater with a rating of 36000 will heat u up then shut off.if you use a smaller heater it will take longer to heat thus using more energy for the same results.

Why is our ETS heater streaking the walls and ceiling black?

Electric heaters should not give off anything to make the paint go black , paint will change colour from the heat over time . I would say make sure there is nothing behind the heaters causing this to go black .

Ask where you buy your paint they can advise on paint that will not change with the heat .

I am getting ready to buy baseboard heat for a 800-900 squarefoor open area, old GArage, And I am looking at 3 8' 2500W sections of base board. is this enough. And How much better is the units you have...

First, those of us on FixYa don't sell any products or appliances. Just information.

But to answer your question about electric baseboard heating ... It's the most inefficient and costly heating source you could use. With that said, a lot depends on the cubic footage of the area, as well as how well that area is insulated. This applies for electric, gas or oil heating. You rae not just heating square footage, you're wanting to heat cubic footage (i.e. Width x Length x Height = Cubic Footage). Assuming you have an 8 ft ceiling, the Cubic Footage would be (assuming a 9 ft ceiling) 7200 Cubic Feet. Based on that and if it was my home, I'd be installing a 20,000 - 25,000 Btu Vent-free (Flue-Less) Gas Heater, with built-in thermostat control. It could either be as a Free Standing, Vent-free Gas Fireplace System or simply a Wall Mounted Heater. One is decorative, as well as efficient and the other is simple and efficient. Plus, gas heat is a warm, moist heat that you feel very quickly and it's more comfortable than electric or oil heat. As a matter of fact, Vent-free Gas Heating Appliances are 99.9% efficient. And will work without electricity. Which is great during a Winter power outage. If you currently don't have Natural Gas at your home, then LPG (Liquid Propane Gas) is readily available.

So, by now, you figured out that my preference is gas. I have three Vent-free gas heating appliances in my 3000 square foot home (2-Vent-free Remote Controlled Gas Log Sets in existing wood burning fireplaces & a Vent-free heater in my 2-car garage). Our primary heat source is an electric heat pump. Which doesn't work well, when the temperature reach 32 degrees F or lower. We use the gas heaters only as a supplement heat source or as primary source, if the power goes out.

I hope you'll take a little time to research this, because in the long run, it can save you $$$. Below, is a link to Empire Comfort Systems. They have excellent supplemental and primary heating products in all looks, shapes and sizes. This will give you an idea of what's out there.

I hope all of this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Installed my second Fahrenheat FUH 724 7500W heater in another garage. Installed same as previous heater that works perfectly. used 10 Gage wire and 40A 240V breaker (2-20A). Wiring is correct. Heater...

Could be either. But, I suspect that wiring is getting hot enough to trip the breaker. Check all of your wiring to see if there is a hot spot or insulation melted.

Bought model (I think this is model #) 29456 at yard sale; using it to heat garage -- do I need to vent? door open ok? or can I use ventless?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Anything that burns produces Carbon monoxide. There is no way to physically vent the space heater but you can leave a side door open for air. The key is to notice the signs of nausea, the lack of ability to do things requiring manual dexterity / clumsiness, dizziness or a headache when your using the unit. Also... it is a good idea to have someone check on you about every 30 minutes if your working alone in a garage. Make sure they know how to turn off the heater and how to open your garage door. (just common sense stuff)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Mr. Heater Natural Gas Garage Heater - 45,000 BTU. Power 120 volt and 24 volt good. Thermostat calling for heat, but nothing happening??

Check for a fuse either in-line or on the circuit board. There should be 24 volts going to the thermostat. If not, you have either a bad transformer or a bad thermostat wire. Jump out the terminals that the thermostat wires are connected to. This should force the unit to fire. If not, bad circuit board.

My Dayton garage heater model 2E636B does not heat up.

These heaters are the same as the marley heater, the element never gets red hot. the unit is set up so the fan kicks on after the element has heated to a certain temp and turns off after the element has cooled. It is common for these heater fans to cycle on and off quite often untill the air temp reaches about 55 degrees and then will operate normaly. If the fan still cycles too often you may have to replace the fan control and high limit switch. These are not very expensive and easy to replace yourself. they arte usualy attached to the back of the element with clips. The luke warm air is what these units put out. I have an equivelent to the dayton G73 and it heats a 24' X 30' garrage all winter in central Minnesota.

Error Code 30

It may be the room temp sensor. Have you relocated it? It is on the back of the heater? It needs to be away from the heater where it will not sense the heat high heat coming out of the heater, and also the cold wall behind it. Usually a bit up, and then to the side will work. Play with it and the temp setting til you find one that is comfortable.
