TPI 178TMC Details

Keep warm wherever you're working with the TPI 178 TMC portable electric forced air ceramic heater. With two heat settings, one operating at 95 kW and the other operating at 150 kW, this unit is the perfect go-to device for heating cold job sites, warehouses, and other locations. It even includes a 6' long cord for ample slack between it and an electrical outlet.

The unit uses a fan to circulate heat around the space for consistent comfort. If needed, this fan can be used without heat, as well. When used for heat, the unit allows the user to adjust the heat intensity with its easy-to-use thermostat. To ensure mechanical safety, a high-limit thermal cut-out switch prevents the heat from rising to high, unsafe temperatures. If the heat does exceed the limit though, the automatic reset feature lowers the temperature back down for safe, continued use.

Compact and weighing just 8 lb., this heater is a great device to keep on hand. It includes a built-in stand and top handle that not only provide user convenience, but add visibility thanks to their brightly colored design. The fan and heat dials are likewise bright in color, making them easy to see and adjust. A 120V electrical connection is required for operation.
