The Benefits Of Upgrading To KB Eco2S+
Better Control, Means Better Comfort
If you have an original KB ECO2S Garage Heater, you already know how powerful it is at not only keeping you comfortable throughout the winter, but with saving you from needlessly waiting energy to heat your space, compared to a standard electric heater. It all comes down to the energy-saving 2-stage heating logic of the ECO2S electronic controller that automatically uses the least amount of wattage to efficiently heat the space at any given time.
Well, with the introduction of KB ECO2S+ it all boils down to offering even more options to control of your comfort.
The biggest advantages of the newt ECO2S+, it that they come with 2 additional standard features offering more precise comfort.
One of the biggest challenges with any electric heater, is it is not always installed in the best location to evenly heat the space. Sometimes the installation location comes down to where it is easiest for the electrician to install, which is not always near the area you spend the most time. Your work bench!
ECO2S+ now includes a battery powered remote temperature sensor that can be easily moved around the room with you, so your heater knows exactly where the room’s cold spot is and works smarter to keep the entire room comfortable. Just place it on a wall or shelf and get the right temperature, right where you want it.
The second new feature is that all KB ECO2S+ heaters come standard with a provision for adding an optional 24V thermostat for remote temperature control, making it compatible Nest and other 24V WiFi thermostats, like the Ecobee. This opens endless potential for controlling your heater from a remote location, allowing you to set a heating schedule to match your lifestyle or even turn on the heat manually, minutes before you enter the space guaranteeing you will never walk into a cold garage again.
Pretty powerful stuff!
See below for a review by K6 Outdoors, who knows first hand that this simple upgrade has powerful advantages to get your through the long, cold winter!
“In my shop the remote sensor makes a big difference. I placed the remote sensor close to my workbench. It’s great that the desired temperature is maintained where I spend most of my time rather than at the heater.”

Is a smart thermostat too much for your garage, shop, greenhouse, or shed? In this video, @K6Outdoors installs the Ecobee 3 lite in his shop to control his KB Eco2s+ heater.
“I am looking forward to this for many reasons. I can pre-heat my shop from the comfort of my couch, monitor power usage/ runtime, monitor the ambient temp remotely and let technology save me money.” – @K6Outdoors
