What Are Pros And Cons Of Wall Heaters ?

These are compact units that are mounted on walls. They can run on various fuels such as natural gas, propane or electricity. These units are perfect, if you live in a rented apartment. They are plug and play devices that you can carry with you when you move from your present residence.

Electric Wall Heater: An electric wall heater consists of a resistor. The electric current passes through the resistor, which converts electricity into heat.

Fuel-based wall heaters: In this cold air is blown over a heat exchanger, which is warmed by combustion of fuel oil or gas. The warmed air is then pushed through a vent into the room. These heaters will have a flue to vent exhaust air. Some high efficiency units are available that are vent-less. The manufacturers of such units claim that they do not need vents as they have almost cent percent efficiency.

Wall heaters heat rooms in two ways - through a fan and through convection. Heaters that are integrated with fans use them to take in room air, blow it across the hot coils, and then push it back into the room. In convection models, the warm air that is produced by the heater increases in volume and rises up to make the room warm.
