compact unit heater

The KBP is the industry standard for multi-wattage garage / shop heaters. It even provides an idea solution for Greenhouse heating. Designed for rugged performance, the flow-through design efficiently moves air by pulling air from the back of the heater and discharges it out the front, easily heating a large space. With high quality components suitable for both residential and commercial applications, it comes standard with a 3 position (Heat/Fan/OFF-DISCONNECT) switch and an accurate built-in thermostat. The integral fan delay continues to dissipate heat from the elements during the cool down period, maximizing the heat exchange in the room. King’s exclusive dual Pic-A-Watt steel fin elements allow customers to select from a range of wattage options, tailoring the heater to an area’s specific heating requirements.
