This newly developed fan heater is ideal for use in your greenhouse or other outbuilding. The strong metal casing is powdercoated in an attractive green colour, and will outperform the plastic cases of rival heaters. Inside is a stainless steel heating element and good quality fan which circulates c.186m3 per hour ensuring that the temperature in your greenhouse is kept relatively even all over the greenhouse by the good movement of air.
In order to be safe for greenhouse use, new regulations state that greenhouse heaters should be IPX4 rated or above, meaning that if they encounter some wet conditions or splashing they should be safe. This model is IPX4 rated.
You can use this heater as a fan only (in summer) or you can set the switch to 1kW heat or 2kW heat depending on how big your greenhouse is. There is also a thermostat included which can be adjusted and the heater will click off when the desired setting is reached. We recommend that you use the heater in conjunction with a max min thermometer in your greenhouse, to help you fine- tune your set-up.
We are often asked what size greenhouse this heater will heat and there is no definite answer for that, as it depends on how cold it is outside and how warm you want it in the greenhouse. As a general guide, a 2kW will heat up to an 8x12 greenhouse, possibly a little bigger if you only want it frost free. If you are pushing the borderline with this, then take extra measures during a very cold snap (e.g -10 at night) such as adding more heat or turning the thermostat up to allow a bigger buffer during the coldest part of the night.
Please also see our 3kW model which is available for larger greenhouses.
Fan only: 25W
Q. Is this heater safe to be left "plugged in" for the winter months without risk of fire?
A. This isn't usually a problem if the instructions are followed. However remember to read the safety warnings that come with the heater. The heater should have a 1 metre cube of clear area in front of it and should not be accessible to children or animals.
Q. Are you likely to get more 'green Montana heaters? I see that they are a 'clearance' item.
A. Great news! We still have stocks due to a recent delivery. The current price will continue whilst these are in stock.
Q. Does the heater show the thermostatic temps ie 5c 10c 16c
A. The thermostat in our low priced, non-professional (usually those under-£130) heaters are basic so are accurate to about +/- 8-10 Celsius between 5C & 40C. For a more accurate temperature control on this type of heater I would recommend using the heaters MAX setting whilst plugged into the BIO-GREEN THERMO2 professional thermostat which would control the heat (between -50C & +90C) to an accuracy of c.1 Celsius.
Q. Just posted a review for the Montana 2KW & sorry to have to complain a bit about the thermostat non-sensitivity. Is this explained by your answer to the Q above? I'd really appreciate your comment on problem. Thanks.
