This model only has a one speed blower. Looking at the wiring diagram, the fan is fed directly off the thermostat, while the heating elements are powered from the heat selection switch.

answer 2
I am a hobbyist, and part time electrician, I would NOT recommend putting two of these heaters on a single circuit. It draws a lot of amps, you risk the possibility of an overload, and a fire, plus you would have to use a thicker wire, and when attempting to hard wired that thicker wire into the heater, it would almost appear impossible to work, bend and mount that size wire within the heater box, my biggest fear would be overloading the circuit and risk a potential fire.

My garage is about 600 square feet, insulated walls and ceiling (just fiberglass, nothing exotic), plus R-18 insulated garage doors. 17,000 btu works fine, but add a small fan blowing downward to pull the stratified hot air down to the concrete slab. Getting the concrete warm takes 24 hours, but after that the shop is comfortable for all kinds of work. The stored heat in the concrete is valuable, since if you are doing painting, spraying, and handling anything flammable I turn off ALL heat sources and air out the garage for a few minutes, and the concrete holds the heat until I can put the heater on again.

Question

What about a remote switch as this is on the ceiling?

What should be used to control this heater remotely? I have a high ceiling and would need a switch that is easy to reach. I don't think that controlling it only with a circuit breaker would be a good idea.

If you have it hard-wired in using the breaker is about your only choice. I don't believe it will be harmful to the breaker and I have seen this setup before so it is fairly common. I have the same heater but I have it wired to plug into a dryer-type outlet so I simply unplug it when not in use.
