Ceramic Wall Panel Heaters

11 February 2017 - 11:40 AM

I have to share these heaters.
Antoinette Badenhorst had these in her studio. I really liked them. I have 5 in my studio which is 10% more than was recommended for my space of 560 sq ft, insulated.
They are convection heaters, no blowers. 400W each. Fantastic. 8-18 inches is the recommended height from the floor. Due to a concrete footing on my walls, I mounted them to plywood with an insulated backing for the outside walls. They take a while to heat up. Antionette's husband , Koos, recommended leaving them on constantly. I'll see what my next bill looks like.Koos even mentioned mounting on cabinets. They seem really great. No plumbing or wiring necessary. They plug into the wall socket. They come with all the mollie bolts, bolts, caps, and a drill bit for installation. wires running cool.They cost $54 -45 each.
Very satisfied. I have my wheel sitting between 2 on the outer wall. I wanted a view out the window. They are about 6 feet on either side of my wheel. They should not be mounted under window, next to a door or close to an open stairway in order to run efficiently.
