  • Thank you for your question! The Broan 6201 can tolerate the humidity, but as with anything with metal, over time, there could be a development of surface rust. Hope this helps!

    Can it tolerate the humidity of a bathroom without corrosion?

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Broan heater 6201 recently had to move into a 5th wheel for the winter time. SInce the unit runs mostly on propane, I was having to have the 5-7gallon tanks refilled evey couple of weeks. I hated having to do that so I sought out a portable heater for inside. This little model may fool u by its small size but its wonderful. I havent used it over night as yet because I dont know if it is eqiupt for leaving running over night or unattended. If any one can tell i can that would be great to save on the propane.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not so good thermostat I use one in my RV and, yes, it's a good little heat producer....but the thermostat leaves one lacking. I'm putting a line-voltage thermostat in the power cord to fix it. One problem is that the thermostat sticks. Another problem might be that the thermostat is too close to the heating element. I also have an older version of this same heater and it suffers the same delemma.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Heat 6201 I bought a 6201 model Big Heat portable heater, and i was surprise how much this little portable, heat's and how powerful the little fan blow's. I have bought 3 other portable heater's for my inclosed race car trailer and this little thing out did them all. It even work's ahole lot better than the roof mount A/C heater unit i have on my trailer. I will definily be telling my friend's at the race track about this little heater and i will show them how well it work's so they can see for them self. I will be buying some more 6201, one for my laundry room, and another one for my trailer and one for a spare. MQ55 Texas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lil' Heater in the World!! Truly, no home or RV should be without one of these. Traveling in an RV one late night in a large busy city, my dash defroster fan motor stopped blowing! My windshield quickly fogged up causing a very dangerous condition..This little "Broan Big Heat" saved me from possible tragedy. I am a woman in my 50's traveling alone for the most part..Love this heater!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been very staisified with the model 6200. Have used in travel trailer, shop, water well house. My wife uses one at work under her desk. Cannot praise enough the performance and most of all the reliablity. I am presently checking to see if we can get another one, just for a spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I unpacked the heater, I was surprised at how small it was. Then I was even more surprised at the power of it. It easily heats my double car garage. This is a definite favorite of mine. I encourage everyone to try it. I'm finally warm this winter!!
