Hello, I am curious about running an electric heater off a generator to heat my garage, one of those little squared ones with the big plug on the end. We always cal
Led them 220 heaters but idk if thats right.
instead of using propane or kerosene. Is it possible ? Does it just plug into what they call the 120/240 plugin ?
Sorry if I was confusing , I'm quite confused. I'm renting a 10x 24 storage unit as my garage it has light etc but no heat of course. And canadian winters are chilly this time of year

This will work with generator as long as the generator has 110v outlet.
