  1. Will get one of these for my garden office I hope to get built once things get back to normal! Sounds ideal to turn on while having breakfast 🙂

    • Yes it does seem like a compelling product. I was thinking of doing the same Mike for my garden office (when I build it)

  2. Hi Jon, any idea when you might review it ? I am looking for this to be used in a small holiday home 3 hours drive from where I live, but still a little bit in doubt what you would be able to do with the heater in combination with Homekit or more important what you can not do ?
