    How tight can you make the rough-in hole (in terms of fresh air being drawn into stud cavity) and can the rear of the box be flushed tight to the back of the rough-in hole?

    Is there a way to keep the air from blowing across the thermostat (so that thermostat turns on/off from room temp rather than heater temp?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 178 wall heater. We do not suggest or recommend using any sort of deflector on the 178. It will create an overheat situation. There is no way to direct the heat in another direction.

    Thermostat problem using our wall heater

    Our wall heater has a new problem which is that it turns itself on and off when we have it set on the low (off) setting. This happens regardless of how cold or warm the bathroom is. It's annoying since it can wake us up at night.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. The thermostat setting at 'low' is not off but somewhere near 40 degrees. If your heater is coming on and off, and your room is not that cold, you may need a new thermostat. The part number is S99030191 and is available by calling our Customer Service group at 800-558-1711 or by visiting the "Shop for Parts" section on our website. If you need further assistance, please contact Technical Service at 800-637-1453.

    Thank you for your question on the model 170 wall mounted fan forced heater. The 170 fan is designed to work with the heater only. You cannot run the fan separately from the heater.
