The Hound Heater Classic is also useful for water pump houses in barns so you can be assured that the valves and pump will not freeze. knowledge the valves and pump will never freeze!
Akoma also markets the Hound Heater Furnace Deluxe with a Cord Protector. The Hound Heater Deluxe has a built-in 100,000 cycle, very accurate, thermostat (replaceable). In contrast to the Hound Heater Classic which is a heater with no thermostat — just plug it in and keep it running.
How do I figure out the size of the house I want to heat with the Hound Heater?
To determine how many cubic feet you have, you must multiply the Length x Width x Height. As an example, a house measuring 4 feet long x 2 feet wide and 2 feet tall = 16 cubic feet.
Can my dog get shocked by the Hound Heater?
No worries! The cord comes out the center, back of the heater, so it is easy to install it outside the kennel. If the house is inside the kennel and you have concerns about your pet chewing the cord, you can purchase the Hound Heater Furnace Deluxe with Cord Protector that features an extremely heavy duty, stainless steel spring. This spring covers the entire length of the cord.
Does the Hound Heater Classic require assembly?
No. Simply follow the mounting instructions and plug it in.
