    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.

    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.

    It only Runs for about a minute, even in a slightly chilly room. Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity or setting of the thermostat?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. If you are turning the knob (thermostat) all the way in a clockwise direction, the heater should continue to run until the room gets to the desired temperature. At this point, you will turn the knob (thermostat) back until the heater stops. This will allow the heater to "cycle" on and off to maintain the desired temperature. If your heater is turning off immediately after turning full clockwise, I would suspect a defective thermostat, which is part number S99030191. This part is available through our Customer Service department at 800-558-1711 or by visiting the "Shop for Parts" section on our website. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support department at 800-637-1453.

    Is the lowest thermostat setting sufficient for summer months or is a separate off/on switch recommended

    Answers

    Answer: 
    It is not necessary to have a separate switch on model 174. In the summer months, simply turning the thermostat knob all of the way, in a counter-clockwise rotation, should prevent the heater from coming on.
