The NewAir G73 is one of the more popular electric heaters on the market. It has a very durable build and packs a powerful punch considering it’s size. The G73 is all about quality – this is the last heater you’re going to need to heat a garage workshop. The handle makes this a very versatile machine. It’s easy to carry around (weighing in at only 15 pounds) and is also able to be easily ceiling mounted if you’re looking for a fixed and out of the way heater.
Coming in at 5000 watts (17060 BTUs), this electric heater easily heats a 500 square foot space, which is generally the size of most garages. If you have a very large garage (1000 feet plus+) you may want to opt for two or get something a bit more heavy duty.
For it’s size it actually performs very well. When I say it’s able to heat 500 square feet I mean it can actually get it HOT, not just take off the chill. Don’t worry about it being too hot though, its’ built-in thermostat will let you have complete control of your spaces temperature.
Judging by user reviews, this heater can easily heat a 500 square foot room up to a comfortable temperature in 20 to 40 minutes. This number will vary depending on a few external factors (drafty garage, high ceilings), but that’s a pretty good time when compared to other electric heating options.
The NewAir G73 is a very reasonable price for what it delivers. The price fluctuates a bit with with this model, so it’s best you click here to check the current price.
SAFTEY & POWER USAGE
Electric heaters are generally the safest power source you can get. Thankfully, this electric garage heater takes it one step further with some bonus safety features.
Automatic shutoff is available so you don’t have to worry about anything burning if you forget to turn it off and also it won’t consume endless energy throughout the night (which can usually be a costly mistake!). Another bonus with this feature is it actually extends the life of your heater since the parts aren’t constantly under use.
Not everything’s perfect. There have been complaints due to this unit needing hard-wiring rather than previous models and smaller heaters which are simply a plug-and-go heater. Really this is the only reason the NewAir G73 couldn’t grab the top spot on our site. Still, it is actually very easy to set up a heater even if it’s hard wired so this still deserves a second look at a top contender. Heating-wise it’s fantastic, and a small inconvenience shouldn’t be enough to settle for a lower quality or lesser powerful model of heater.
Overall reviews have been calling this little heater a “powerful heater for the price”. It’s heavy duty, safe, energy efficient, and most importantly, hot! You’re getting a small heater with a durable steel construction for a reasonable price. Add in the portability and automatic safety shut off and this should be a serious choice for any medium sized work space.
