500W Garrison Baseboard Heater
Not bad heaters *DO work with wall thermostat*
I have had two of the 1500watt heaters installed in my basement using the onboard thermostat without issue for over a year. They are much more aesthetically pleasing then my older ones. They do hum and tick a bit, but my old ones cracked and popped just the same, louder iirc. The previous poster stating these cannot be used with a wall mounted thermostat is wrong. I called and verified with Canadian tire, to use a wall mounted thermostat you just install as per instructions however set the built in thermostat to max, thereby when the wall mounted thermostat kicks on, the heater comes on as normal.
I also have 2 500 watt heaters and have had no issue with them either.
I also got these on sale 60% off, and a further 15% cash back on a promotion while using my Canadian tire Mastercard. How can you go wrong for that price??

I bought this to be hooked up to a wall thermostat. Which was stated by Canadian tire. which I found out was false after searching on the internet.
In the Canadian tire Q&A states to call Garrison. I did and found out that they don't support it. So now I have to return the heater.
All rating is based on Canadian tires info on the product.

Do not Buy - Horrible Product
Purchased 10 of these heaters in various sizes while renovating our house because they are the best looking baseboard heaters available.
But... every single one of them hums very loudly during operation and ticks, cracks, and pops while heating up and cooling down = very very annoying!!! Keeps waking my wife in the middle of the night!

The dimplex brand is much more DIY freindly, compared to the Noma brand. Noma was difficult to install.

Good for small space heating.
We installed this model in our front entrance when we had the floor redone. It is effective to take the chill off the room in the winter, and often has wet boots and shoes sitting in front being dried out.
