Kick space heaters
« on: July 27, 2018, 02:14:17 PM »

Anybody have a good brand of kick space heater?

I believe Supplyhouse has changed brands, reviews for the most part with very little complaints of noise unlike the previous brand.

This will be installed under a book case in a single stall garage converted to a family room.

All Iíve seen so far are 1/2Ē connections so figured to grab the return line from the furnace HX and use a mono flo T to divert part of the return to it.

Upon further reflection have decided between the flat plate and furnace HX would be the best place for a mono flo.

We put in quite a few of the Slant Fin kickers, seem to be real quiet and put out plenty of heat for what they are with the 1/2" connections. Most of our commercial systems run 140-160 degree water so 180 would be real surprising I'd bet. Never strayed from that brand as that's what our wholesale house carries but I'd put one in my house if I needed one

Strange, found em but they didnít turn up on my original search for kick space heater.

Biggest issue is this will be going under a book cabinet.

I need to head back anyways, they have an odd heat pump setup in the crawl space. Need to take a drill and a temp probe to see how long a piece of adapter plenum I need to make to get the HX far enough away to avoid freezing.

Have a Trane outside with a GE unit in the crawl space.
