Question

Can this heater be a primary heat source for a small cabin?

The size is 24 x 14 and it is well insulated and will be a rental. Can an infrared heater of this size heat it during the winter?

thanks

One also needs to concider - how many windows - doors because each allows heat lost plus how cold your baseing your question on? I use mine in a well insulated 15 x 20 sq. foot family room - 8' ceiling & I use a ceiling fan to help circulate the air - it has concrete floor with pad and carpeting - 1 insulated exterior door - 3 - 5'x8' insulated windows - insulated drapes & its close to your cabin size. Example if the out side temp. is roughly 30 degree's this heater will maintain my room at 70 - 72 degree's approx. But if out side temp. drops five degree's the inside temp. seems to drop almost the same @ 25 degree's. @ times when its 15 degree's I find myself with the heater facing me. Each senario is different - I have found this heater to work the best out of all that I have tried. But I also have a furnace to help the heater out if needed also. For the money this is really a nice heater but I can't say for sure that it will do what you are wanting it to - try it and see is all I can suggest. I hope this helps. Cheers

The filter is located at the rear of the heater. You remove a door and the filter tips out. It is designed to be washed in clean water and replaced after it dries.

Question

Will it stay on when power is out and comes back?

We bought a competing unit and when the power goes out, the unit does not come on and needed to be turned on manually. This is a real drawback when counting on a heater to keep running when we are out of town during colder weather when it is used to keep the house above freezing.

The Profusion Infrared Quartz Heater, like most heaters, will not turn back on after a power outage. The heater is not designed to be used unattended.

When power goes off, the Profusion goes off. When the power comes back on the unit "powers up" but there is no heat output. You must reset the on switch and reset your heat output.

Staff Answer
The approximate life of the quartz elements is around 5,000 hours. These quartz elements are not recommended to be replaced by consumers for safety reasons, because of this reason you would want to buy a whole new heater when the quartz element goes out.
