What is a wall mounted electric heater: An electric wall
heater is great way to heat one room in your home or office. They are available
two major designs - fan forced and convention (No Fan) heaters. They come in several sizes, heat outputs and
can be controlled with a couple of different options - built in thermostats or
remote on the wall thermostat or other prefer a 60 min timer you put on the
wall and it only works when your turn the timer on.
Application: Can be a perfect heating solution for the
hallway and bathroom, it can also be installed in other parts of the house,
such as the office or in commercial building. Some people will use them for their
additions to their home because they can't or don't want to run extra duct work
or piping. The most common rooms are bathrooms, bedrooms, basements, hallways.
How it works: Electric wall heaters come in convection and fan forced. A convention wall heater has no moving parts and
makes little to no noise. It works just like a baseboard heater when the element gets hot it pulls the cool air up across the element.
Convection wall heaters are perfect for bedroom, living
rooms and room where noise is the issue. The down side to this heater is they are
bigger and take longer to heat a room.
Fan forced heaters; pull the cold into the heater element
with a fan, once it goes through the heating element it shots hot air
out. This model will make some noise depending on the quality of the fan and
motor the unit will be loud or quiet, but all will make some noise
Where to start: when shopping for an electric wall heater
the first thing you want to figure out is how big a room you are trying to heat.
Electric heaters come in voltage for 1000 watts up to 5000 watts of heat. Every 1000 watts of can heat 100 square feet a room so a 10 x10 room will need 1000
watts of heat.
