Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We wanted to purchase a heater for our cottage. The one were looking at was Farenheat # 30263 4000 watts at Lowes. When reading the pamphlet inside the box it stated for best results it was better to leave it running all the time. We are at the cottage only a few months a year and didn't want it running all the time, so we decided this was probably not the best thing for us. The other thing that we realized was that eventhough it stated it had a thermostat we couldn't set a certain degree of heat because it only had a knob with numbers. What model would be better to fit our needs. Any suggestions Thank you, Vicky

Hi Vicky,
Don't be mislead...
The electric heater that you saw at Lowe's is no different then any can turn any electric heater off and then turn it on as you wish will not hurt it... the only reason for that caution is that when turning off a heater that you are using regularly you can end up costing yourself more money....but in this case not because you would have it off for a very long period of time....
okay now that I have totally confused you on that one... the thermostat...
You can hook any line voltage thermostat to that heater... and for that matter you would soon find that the numbers are not that bad and you would soon find which number suits your comfort range...
So go get that heater and you will get a great price and a good product.. that will work well for you...

#1 you have to calculate the heatloss of your rooms,that will tell you ur wattage require. Oil filled or not,it's just as dry. As far as ur load to panel breakers, a rule of thumb is approx 3600 watts for 20 amps,using a number 12 wire. But ur wall heaterS should suffice

Go to lowes or home depot and buy a properly rated switch and install it. Make sure to check the device and get its watts, amps and or volts before you go as they will want at least 2 of those items. Watts and amps or volts and watts or amps and volts.

I have a farenheat fuh 54 b the fan turns slow until I tilt it towards the floor and then it spins fine. Checked for loose or broken wires and found none.

I would clean fan blades and motor housing. Blow out motor with compressed air if possible and check for oil ports on both ends of motor housing. If your motor has oil ports they may have plastic or aluminum plugs in them. If so remove themand put 3-4 drops of fine grade oil in. I hope this helps. Thanks

I installed a 1000 watt four foot long Farenheat F2544 baseboard heater in my outdoor workshop. But it's too small for the space. I calculated that I probably need 2000 watts to heat my space. But I do not...

I could find no electrical code or mechanical code that says you can do that, so I wouldn't do that.
But have you thought of or do you have the overhead space to install a hanging unit heater? They don't require much space(just make sure you install it per manufacturers specifications) and they come in much higher BTU ratings.

I have an old duo therm in a 1969 15'x8' travel trailer, How many watt gererator will i need to run it and maybe some lights? how and where do i check the watts or volts on it?

Lights take almost nothing to run, however, an A/C takes quite a bit to operate. It would help to know more details about the A/C unit you have, such as the amps it draws, how many Btu's, etc.

Another issue is how much noise are you willing deal with related to operating the generator, as some camping areas have limits on generator use and the noise levels.

That being said, if you're looking for a really good and quiet generator that will run your A/C and some lighting, I'd have to say you can't beat a Honda rated for at least 3500 watts minimum running watts. But those are pricey compared to other brands, which make slightly more noise when running.

If you can get away with more noise, then you can get a nice 5000 watt unit for around $500 +/- that should handle your needs.

Here's some info to help you in your decision making as to what you need to run your devices and you can decide what brand you want to purchase.

Hope this helps and best regards!

There are 2 , 150 watt halogen lamps in the drum heater assembly. One or both are burned out.
I can send you instructions on how to replace them. Xerox will want over $250 for an entire heater assembly. You can buy the lamps at Lowes or any place that sells Halogen lamps for around $15 for a set.

Yep. The drum heaters are burnt out.
There are 2,,, 150 watt Halogen lamps that heat the drum.
The way to see if they are working or not is to turn off the lights in the office or room the printer is in. Turn the machine on and look through the fan slots on the right side of the machine. GIve it a minute or two and you should see lamps glowing inside, ( I seriously doubt you will see them comming on).
That is a very common problem, You can purchase those lamps at Lowes, Home Depot or anywhere you can purchase halogen lamps. They cost about 12 dollars for a good pair.
Replace both .. If you want to try and do it yourself. Let me know I will send you directions.
