Hylite have designed this tubular heater to be a cheap-to-run. Unlike other tubular heaters, this one comes with a thermostat. The tube comes with mountings that allows it to be put on the floor or attached to a wall.
Q. I am looking for a heater to use in my shed when i am grooming my pets to keep me warmer, do you think this would be suitable?
A. The tube heater is more of a frost protector than a physical heater. If your looking to heat an area then the Bio Green Montana 2kW heater will be perfect for the job. (Just enter FIND ME QUICK CODE: 00057.
Q. What is the length of this heater?
A. This heater is 2-foot long (610mm).
Q. I am looking for a heater to protect a pump house at the top of a water bore well to stop the pump and pipes frezzing in cold weather. this is a small area so space is limited. I assume this heater is fitted with a thermostat as it is a frost protector? Please could you tell me at what Temp the heater kicks in? Is this variable or fixed? Will it stop water pipes freezing? Will it protect down to minus 13 to 20 centigrade as we have recnetly seen this winter?
A. This heater is perfect for keeping a well insulated area of around 6'x6' frost free. Keeping external sourced pipes from freezing is a little more comlicated though. These can freeze from the outside in so I would suggest using a 2 or 3kw fan heater (Accessories>>Heaters>>Electric Heaters) set at between 8-12 degrees in an attempt to keep the pipes flowing.
Q. Is there a thermostate with this heater?
A. All tube heaters by Hylite have a safety cut off to prevent over-heating. But they can be used in conjunction with a BioGreen Thermo 2 thermostat if one is required.
Q. can this tube be used vertical ?
A. These heaters must be horizontal to prevent burn-out.
Q. I have a cold 6 x 8 greenhouse. I would like to grow some plants from seeds but the greenhouse needs to be 15 - 20C Would this light tube work?
A. You would require a 2kW fan heater to achieve the temperatures that you mention, 55W is the power of a domestic light bulb.
Q. I have your 8" x 10" greenhouse. What is your recomendation for the number of these required to heat it enough just to keep it frost free?
A. I would recommend a Botanic 2kW fan heater[Product ID:5148] for a 8" x 10" greenhouse.
Q. Hi I have a 6m x 6m wooden garage. Last year I was having due/condensation forming on my motorcycles. I have spent all year sorting a roof, gutters, cladding and drainage. Would one of these between the 2 bikes stop the due point hitting the bikes? Thanks.
A. A Slimline Green Eco Heater - 55W Tube heater would no doubt reduce the condensation problem, but is unlikely to be totally effective in very cold weather, after all 55watt is the power of just one light bulb.
Q. Have an 8 X 2 foot greenhouse which I purchased from you earlier in the year I require a heater to keep plants frost free over winter, would this one do the job, if not what would you recommend.
A. You would require a 2kW fan heater such as a Botanico [Product ID: 5148] to guarantee frost free conditions in a 2' x 8' lean-to greenhouse.

Does the job I wanted it for. Heating a small cold frame until warm enough to open lid to acclimatise small plants.
I bought this for my boat. It has only been on board for a couple of weeks but it seems to be quite satisfactory and I am please that it has a thermostat. One minor fault is that it is not possible to tighten the clips - which secure it to the legs - sufficiently so that it is a fairly loose fit. Delivery was next day as promised.
Good value for money ,easy to fix and very neat. Delivery time was excellent.
