Broan Big Heat

I had one of the old and discontinued Big Heat with the metal woodgrain housings with heating coils and it worked fantastic. They have been upgraded to a Ceramic type and was wondering about the performance of these. I found them for $38 and probably purchase one. Any responses appreciated and thanks.

Have never used the Big Heat Brand, but have been using the Pelonic ceramic brand that I find at Ace Hardware for years. I use two of them in the RV and three in the stick house, expecially in the bathrooms.

This is true! My 85 year young father just bought a 2009 class C and this is a very small (6"cube)heater for a small MH. I thought I'd buy this and hope that it is less to trip over. He get's chilled no matter what temp it is sometimes. Trying to make this as simple and as safe as I can for him. Glad he's getting back into RVing even though it's scaring me to drink! LOL

Pelonis Ceramic Heaters There reasonably small, two speed or fan only and ocillate if you want. Been using this style since about '89. He's got me by 20 years, but I got the same problem since a quad several years ago. I'm chill and DW is burning up. When I have to sit them on the floor I put them on a 6x6 inch piece of ceramic tile.

Thanks for the tip on the 6x6 ceramic tile for safety!
