Looking for heater with decent fan

Page 2 of 2  


We might add "on an average day." NREL says 560 Btu/ft^2 of sun (290 diffuse) falls on a south wall on an 29.1 F average day in Rochester with a 35.8 daily max, so a low-mass room with R2 double-pane south glazing with 80% solar transmission and good insulation and no holes in the ceiling might have 0.8x560 = 6h(T-32)1ft^2/R2, which makes T = 181 F. Warm enough? :-)
It should be a heat SOURCE for the attached house.

Should be, but many aren't. Depends on what the owner expected, paid for, and hopefully got in return.

An enclosed porch under what used to be outdoor soffit vents?

You might seal up the holes somehow and let the sun heat the room.
