Default RO help/room

I have just ordered an RO. Looking for any input on an RO room. My RO is a MINI Extreme from Lapierre. Its only like 38 inches wide. 20 inches deep and I think 60 inches tall. I was thinking of a 4 ft by 8 ft addition to the back of my sugar shack. Just looking for ideas. I am going to insulate for sure. Any other ideas would be greatly helpful. Also it is 220 volt, with 22amps it says. What size of a breaker would be recommended.

I addeded a 6 by 8 addition this summer for.my RO. I use a space heater to keep it warm. Currently 50 in the room and -5 outside. I keep a light on to make sure power is on and I check it often. mine is 115v 20 amp system. Ran a 50 amp line to building and go through sub panel to feed lights heater and RO.

Default Extra light

I second the idea of a visual to make sure power to heater is on, or in my case with a small enclosure use multiple bulbs in case 1 burns out. Ice in RO bad

For amps, wait til you get the paperwork. My 250 only has a 15 A (2 pole 15A each pole), bu it was labeled 12A @240V. You might be able to get that info from Lapierre on line, or by calling, they might email you a copy of the instructions.
It's hard to guess, because of start up surge which Lapierre will know but I don't.
