Buyer’s Guide

We have a 12' X 20' cabin with R12 in walls and R20 in ceiling. Two regular 1500 watt thermostatic heaters with fans would not keep up in -20 degree C temperatures so two months ago we bought this BIO-1500PB heater and it does the job just fine on its own. Last week we had a couple days of -43 degree C and room temp never dropped below the desired setting. The two regular heaters sit on the shelf in the garage now and that's where they'll stay. Thanks a lot!!!
