LightHouse 2kW Greenhouse Space Heater with Temperature Control Review


Rating: 4.1 out of 5 (from 281 reviews)

Introducing the LightHouse 2kW Greenhouse Heater, designed to keep your greenhouse, grow room, or grow tent at optimal temperatures.

Equipped with a built-in controllable thermostat, this heater ensures that your desired temperature is maintained consistently. In addition to providing warmth during cooler months, it serves as an air circulator, offering a 'no heat' option to use the fan alone. For added efficiency, a 'half power' mode heats the space at 1kW, reducing power consumption when intense heat is unnecessary.

With its robust construction and user-friendly design, the LightHouse 2kW Greenhouse Heater features two heating elements and a built-in fan to promote air circulation, helping to create an ideal growing environment for your plants.

What users think:

The LightHouse 2kW Greenhouse Heater has received mostly reviews from users.

It was praised for its sturdy build quality and it was noted for being a convenient alternative to paraffin. Many users appreciated its ease of use and noted that after a few trial and error adjustments, they were able to effectively control the temperature. One user states that running the heater off a timer during cheaper overnight electricity rates, making it a cost-effective option for them.

However, some users shared disappointment regarding the heater's continuous fan operation. They were concerned about the potential increase in electricity bills due to the fan not switching off, particularly during colder months.

In summary, while the LightHouse 2kW Greenhouse Heater offers convenience and effectiveness for some users, concerns about running costs and continuous fan operation may impact its overall appeal for others.

Direct quotes from owners:

When it arrived I was impressed with the actual heater itself. Very solid and perfect for a greenhouse. Sadly it is a little pricey to run. Heat setting 1 and having your thermostat pretty low is the only way to save on cost really. Bit apart from that it's a very decent heater.


I bought this type of heater for the greenhouse some years ago from the greenhouse people, the fan turned of with the element when the required temp was reached,this new one does not. I rang the supplier who told me the fan continues and does not turn off but only uses 25 watts. I understand the need for the movement of air but in a greenhouse but in cold weather it would mean the fan would be running for 24-7 and those 25 watts would soon mount up, disappointed to be honest so be careful it could run you electricity bill up if you are growing tender plants in January, February and March


Used in the greenhouse as an alternative to paraffin heating. So much easier than messing with liquid fuel/. Whilst the temperature control is not graduated a couple of nights trial and error got it about right. Ran off a timer on my cheaper overnight electricity rate . Could see the consumption on my smart meter and more than happy as a cost effective alternate to the paraffin.

Price: £41
