The King KBP2406 is a hardwired electric garage heater that uses the patented “Pic-A-Watt” technology. This allows you to customize the level of power used for your space, so you can save power. This technology allows you to heat anywhere from 240 to 600 square feet comfortably.

About the King KBP2406

The King KBP2406 is both powerful and easy to use. There are two control switches, one that controls the built-in thermostat, and the other that controls the fan. This lets you customize how warm you want to make the area you are heating. Patented Smart Life protection shuts the entire unit off in the event of any abnormal event, such as overheating, power supply issues, tip over, etc.

KING KBP2406 Review


  • Original Pic-A-Watt Element
  • Patented Smart Limit Protection
  • Selector Switch: Fan/Heat/Off
  • Long Life Cast Iron Motor

This heater has longevity on its side. It is made with a cast iron motor in the USA, where it has been manufactured since 1958. It is easy to use and comes with a special wall and ceiling mounting bracket that lets you decide how you want to position your heater.

With a five-year warranty and the fact that it is CSA certified to USA and Canada standards, you can be sure that this heater will last a long time.

How to Use

The first thing you need to do is decide where to install the unit. The King KBP2406 comes with a universal ceiling wall bracket, but it is also equipped with an anti-tip switch in case you would rather keep it lower to the ground.

Once you have decided where to put the heater, the next step is to adjust the patented Pic-A-Watt elements to your desired output and install them back into the unit. At this point, you can wire the system, although, for safety, you may want to consider hiring a professional to handle the electrical part of this.

Now all that is left is to turn it on. To do this, all you need to do is adjust the thermostat and fan settings to the desired temperature and enjoy. This unit can be used in the garage, smaller barns, or any other place that you can easily install it out of the elements.


Safety is the number one concern for heating companies. In this case, the safety elements are outstanding. There is a tip-over safety switch if you are using it on the floor that turns the unit off if it happens to fall over. This heater also comes equipped with Smart Life Protection, a patented system that shuts the appliance down in case of any abnormal event. Abnormal events can include power failure, system malfunction, and overheating.

There is a fan delay to assist in dissipating heat when the unit is turned off to help it cool down faster. The Pic-A-Watt feature is not only for saving money on your electricity bill, but it also allows you to customize the wattage down to the safest level for your space.

As with any system, you should keep it clean and well-maintained. That will allow this heater to last a long time without incident.

Here are some of the pros and cons.
