Staff Answer
This Fahrenheat Ceiling-Mount heater would need 10 gauge minimum insulated copper conductor (with ground) wire to run power from the breaker/fuse to the heater. Only use copper wire rated at least 75 degrees Celsius. Do not use aluminum wire with this unit.

Question

On/Off switch is too high above floor. How about a remote switch?

I know about the thermostat and I don't want a remote one. What I want is a remote switch. Please advise on what to use for a remote on/off switch as the controls will be difficult to reach when 8 feet above the floor. the electrical code must allow something like this for safety if nothing else.

Thanks

This heater does have a built in thermostat with a temperature range of 45-90 degrees F. The control knob is not marked in degrees. 50 degrees would be slightly less then halfway on the knob.

answer 2
Yes, this heater does have a built in thermostat with a temperature range of 45-90 degrees F. True, the knob is not marked in degrees, simply turn the unit on high and let the room temperature get comfortable then turn the knob down slowly until you hear a click. Stop turning the knob and it will cycle the heater on and off as needed to keep the room at that temperature.

answer 2
If you have the electrical skill-set, anything can be done. The built-in thermostat is also the on/off switch. You would have to provide for that to take advantage of the heater's fan function. The fan comes on after the heating element is hot, and stops after the heating element cools down. Nice feature, like a forced air furnace.
