    Average Temperature Ranges:

  • Low to Medium -- 32-50 degrees F

    Most people set their Hound Heater Furnace slightly above medium. Please remember that the size of your dog house, its level of insulation and door greatly affect the Furnace's ability to reach any of these temperatures.

    Installation Instructions:

    Tools Required: You will need a measuring device, drill, 1 1/8" wood bit, screwdriver and three wood screws (not included).

    Step 1 -- The Hound Heater can be mounted on any side wall of your dog house. We recommend placing the heater as high as possible with a minimum of at least 3 inches from the ceiling.

    Step 2 -- Using the 1 1/8" drill bit, drill a hole through the wall of your dog house (a minimum of 9" from the ceiling) where the center of the Hound Heater will be placed.

    Step 3 -- Carefully feed the cord all the way through the previously drilled hole making sure the cord is not kinked.

    Step 4 -- Mount the heater with the temperature control knob towards the ceiling and the slant towards the floor using three wood screws or nuts and bolts. Lightly tuck the filter (included in box) in the space between the heater and the wall -- behind the temperature control knob. This will help dog hair, dirt and dust from getting in the heater and improve functionality. Clean filter on a regular basis -- we recommend monthly.

    Step 5 -- Plug the unit into a GFI outlet. If you are using an extension cord, it must be a 3-wire, 18-gauge (outdoor rated) grounded plug cord. Be sure the connection is elevated off any surface and not near water.

    Step 6 -- Set the thermostat to the desired temperature for your pet. (Medium setting is approximately 45-50 degrees F)

    NOTE -- The Hound Heater Plus Dog House Furnace is designed for side wall mounting only. Floor or ceiling mounting can result in permanent damage to your Hound Heater. For maximum effectiveness, it is important that your dog house is insulated and preferably has a door or flap.

    Country of Origin: Made in China.
