Staff Answer
The Fahrenheat Ceiling-Mount is recommended to rotate thermostat knob clockwise to high position. After room reaches desired comfort level, rotate thermostat knob counterclockwise until the thermostat clicks off. (Note that the fan delay will keep the fan running until the elements cool.) Heater will cycle on and off to maintain room temperature. It does not require a separate on and off switch for operation.

The FUH5-4 unit heater is a 5000 watt 240 volt unit. It will draw 20.8 amps and would need a #10-2 with ground. The unit is not UL listed to operate on a cord and plug and must be hard wired to your breaker box.

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.
