Adding heat to a new or existing structure doesn't need to be complicated. The Modine Hot Dawg® Package has everything to give greenhouses, workshops, outdoor living rooms, garages and other spaces reliable gas-fired heat. We offer six sizes of Hot Dawg unit heaters designed to use natural gas or liquid propane. The smallest will heat a one-car garage while the largest can keep a 1,250-square-foot greenhouse or a small warehouse toasty. See the chart below for more usage recommendations.

Each Modine heater kit also includes an electric thermostat, gas connectors and sidewall venting. All you need to add is gas pipes and potentially some more electrical wires. With quiet operation, 82% heating efficiency and versatile wall or ceiling mounting, Modine unit heaters are a convenient and money-saving solution. They're made in the U.S. and include a 10-year heat exchanger warranty. Call Greenhouse Megastore at (888) 281-9337 to talk to a knowledgeable sales associate about choosing the right gas unit heater.

Many of our customers happily report that purchasing a Hot Dawg heater from Greenhouse Megastore helped them save 50% or more off the unit price received from a local HVAC installer. However, for safety reasons and to minimize installation problems, Modine strongly recommends having a licensed HVAC technician install your Hot Dawg heater. Although we are happy to offer limited technical support for your Hot Dawg purchase, we cannot install the heater for you over the phone nor are we able to troubleshoot problems you may experience if you choose to install the heater yourself. By purchasing this heater from us, you accept sole responsibility for installation and agree to abide by Modine's limited warranty.

Delivery was fast. Heater works great. Was a challenge to mount it 12ft in the air but no one died. Heats my 1200 sqft garage to need to take jacket off. Install kit was more then I needed. Simple exhaust 3ft out the back of garage, a lot of leftover parts. Repurposed some pipe for a dryer vent. Would buy again....

45,000 propane unit heater

The product is first rate, fired up cleanly after a test purge of the lines. Not noisy. Warming up a 20 2+ car garage is challenging it, and I might have wished I chose a larger version. Greenhouse was super to work with, keeping me informed of the shipping delays and when it was shipping. Outstanding customer service. Thank you Greenhousemegastore.

So far, so good

Received my heater within days of ordering. Arrived well packed. Haven't installed yet, but looking forward to using replacing a 50 year old heater...

Hot Dawg Heater Package

I have not installed the Modine 45 yet. the only bad thing i have to say about that is there is no instructions on how to hook up the thermastat . The add-on accessory kit is not worth the purchase. The sheet metal ducts will come somewhat bent up and they are not full pipe. you to roll them up and crimp them at the seam. What a waste of natural resources, money and time. After trying to work with that "piping" for quite some time and never being able to get the sheet metal to become a pipe like the picture shows. I'm going to the hardware store and buy the true vent pipe ready to work with. Also regarding the gas vent hardware - you need a T for clean out and drip. As far as the gas pipe hardware they are really of no value. you need a long ( 6"? ) nipple coming out of the gas valve into a T with a 3"min trap and cap. All of this is in the Modine manual. you will need to go online and look for how-to videos and see what you need. So far the heater gets a 4 but the add-on package gets a 1 - for a combined rating of 3

I love this heater

I bought this unit 3 years ago and installed it in my 24 X 30 two car, two story garage. I have a stair case in the back leading up to the second floor. I live in Southwestern PA and this unit runs from Nov. to April. I have the thermostat set at 65 all the time and it heats both floors without any problem. I wanted to wait before I posted my review and this unit is the absolute best thing I ever bought on line. I highly recommend this to any one debating on if they should buy one. Excellent product Hot Dawg, I recommend this unit to everyone I know looking for a great heater.

So far so good

Unit has been installed for a month. Heats a 2.5 car garage with a loft no problem. Every thing works as it should. Nice strong fan and fairly quite as well.
