How Do I Take Care of a Wall Heater?

• Make sure you install your heater in a place where it is meant to operate. For example, don't install a bathroom heater in an outdoor area.

• Keep your heater clean and clear of dust and debris. Something like a leaf or pet hair being heated can create a fire hazard.

• Don't run your heater nonstop for long periods of time. The safety information that comes with your unit should tell you how long it is safe to continuously operate the appliance.

• Even though your heater is made to be installed on a wall, don't forget to keep it away from flammable, hanging items. This includes things like curtains, artwork, quilts, memorabilia, coats, and hats.

• If you don't have the appropriate experience, have your heater installed by a professional. Incorrect installation can cause the heater to malfunction or even create a fire hazard.

How Big of a Wall Heater Do I Need?

To answer that, you will have to know how big your room is. You can purchase heaters that cover over a 1,000 square foot room, such as an open warehouse or multi-car garage.

Get a tape measure and measure the square footage of the space you want to heat.

► For square or rectangular rooms, this is a simple act of multiplying the length and width by each other.
Example: 10 feet wide x 10 feet long = 10 x 10 = 100 square feet.
Example: 27 feet wide x 20 feet long = 27 x 20 = 540 square feet.

►For circular rooms, you'll need to measure the circle itself and then multiply that length by 3.1416. This can be accomplished by having someone stand and hold one end of the tape measure while you walk around the edge of the circle, being sure to keep the tape measure pressed flat against the wall as much as possible to give you an accurate number.
Example: 30-foot circle x 3.1416 = 30 x 3.1416 = 94.248 square feet.
Example: 100-foot circle x 3.1416 = 100 x 3.1416 = 314.16 square feet.

What's the Difference Between a Wall Heater and a Space Heater?

The installation (or lack thereof) and power.

Space heaters are meant to be relatively small and portable. Their size allows you to take them from room to room as you move around a structure. This is great for when the heat (but not the power) goes out in your home, if you live alone and want to cut down on your electricity or gas bill during the winter, or if you live in an apartment building while the HVAC is being repaired. However, what is gained in mobility is generally lost in power. The smaller, portable construction means you can't get anywhere near the amount of heat possible with a wall heater.

A wall heater becomes a permanent fixture in your home. Wall heaters are awesome for large, open spaces that don't warm well using just your HVAC system or that the system isn't able to reach. Because the wall heater is integrated into the structure of your home, it can be as powerful as you need it to be. And because it's built in, you can arrange the room in a manner that promotes safety and comfort that you don't have to change around every day just to avoid a fire hazard.
