Modine offers cost-effective and economical heating options in commercial and residential settings. Whether it’s in a home workspace or light-industrial environment, our Hot Dawg® gas-fired unit heater is ideal for unheated spaces like garages, workshops, and outbuildings. In fact, it’s the most popular residentially-certified gas-fired unit heater available.

Hot Dawg Unit Heater

Although the Hot Dawg® is perfect for serving DIY workspaces, to function optimally, they need to be installed by a licensed contractor. For homeowners interested in purchasing a ®Hot Dawg, the Modine HVAC website offers a convenient locator to find nearby authorized contractors who can help. 

Why is this important? In addition to being able to safely install the units, a licensed contractor will help homeowners find the right size of Hot Dawg to meet the needs of the space. This is vital for effective operation. A unit that is too small won’t be able to heat the space properly. If it’s too big, the unit heater will end up cycling on and off too frequently. This means uncomfortable swings in room temperature and extra wear-and-tear on the heater.

Hot Dawgs Offer Options

To meet the needs of any space, the Hot Dawg® comes in six sizes, ranging from 30,000 to 125,000 BTUs. Homeowners can choose from four models, and a licensed contractor can help determine which option is best:

  • HD – Standard unit (Propeller fan)
  • HDS – Separated combustion unit (Propeller fan)
  • HDB – Standard unit (Blower motor)
  • HDC – Separated combustion unit (Blower motor)

Modine is proud to offer quality heating options for any kind of space and is committed to helping homeowners get the most out of their investment in a Hot Dawg® gas-fired unit heater by helping connect them with qualified contractors. Learn more on about home heating options on our website.
