Default Electric garage heater

This would make a great heater for a 2 car garage. Made by Q-Mark, runs on 208v, single or 3 phase. I dont know a whole lot about it, but specs can be found here: Qmark Type MUH Unit Heater then scroll down to catalog# "MUH078". This is not a cheap heater. Its a few years old, but has very little use. Comes with mounting bracket and timer controller. Timer can be set in small increments up to 6 hours or put on hold, or you could just wire it direct to an on/off switch. Will not seperate from timer. $275.

If interested, please email D1802 (at) sbcglobal (dot) net I have a few things listed on various sites and my little single track mind has a hard time keeping track of who asked what and on what site.

Just so that everyone understands, (and no im not being a dick), this is a 208 volt heater and is not dual rated for 240v as some of the others are. You would need a buck boost transformer to make this work at home.

Im glad you brought this up. I dont know much about home electrical, so would this be compatible with the "220" commonly found in residential?

No, the 220 you speak of is actually 240 volts. 208 volt is a 3 phase WYE voltage, not found in homes.

Interesting. The spec tag on the heater says 1/3 phase and so does the spec list on the site I linked.

correct, it will work on either 3 phase or single phase 208 volt. Not single phase or 3 phase 240v
