I have always loved the idea of a wall heater and I can’t get enough of it. The idea of the house heating up with no fan or heater and then being able to sit down at night and enjoy the coolness of the wall heater is a great idea.
I can’t get enough of the wall heater. That idea of sitting around and enjoying the heat as it warms your home is awesome. The only thing that makes it not awesome is being able to see the smoke billowing up into your room, but that’s not even the worst part. I’ve been using the wall heater at home depot for almost two months and I think I may have finally cracked a case of the fire itch.
You can get a wall heater for a lot less money than some of the other options, and for a lot less $$. For example, if your house has an insulated or a cedar clad exterior, you can get a wall heater for about $50, so you wouldn’t be paying $200+ for one of the other options.
The problem is that you can’t smoke without a cigarette. And if you smoke after youve put on the heater, you will probably burn some of your own nicotine. You can, however, use the heater as a fire extinguisher, so that you dont have to use your lighter every time you are in the room. If thats not enough, you can also attach a battery pack to it. That way you can light up the room as if youve just got a house fire.
This is a heater, not a cigarette, so it looks like a little bit of a problem to me. But like all new-home-projects, there are some features that I would never use it for. One of them being the fact that I wouldnt put the house on a timer, but if you want to, you can still do that with a few simple changes.
The heater works as advertised, but I wouldnt call it a “little problem”. If you just put it on and don’t turn it on, it will stay on and do its job. But if you make the switch to turn it on, it will only stay on as long as the room is lit.
But I wouldnt call a timer a problem either. A timer does not have any way to let the heater know of a room’s need to let in warm air, so you can just set it to be on for a set amount of time and it will let you know when it’s time to let in your heater. This feature is something that I have found useful in the past, but I wouldn’t use it in a new construction house.
I would definitely use a timer if it would let me know when to turn the heater on. It is a very useful feature in a large house but not necessarily for a new home.
The temperature in my house is a little over 80 degrees and the heater is on for way too long. This is my second set of new construction homes as I am still in the process of buying my first. The first one was a big box store set and I got the heater set on the wrong day. I was having the heater last year when I had to do a little remodeling.
I don’t think we’ll see an all-new heater in a new construction house for at least a few months, but I do know that we’ll see home-hanging heaters in new construction homes for a long time. That’s because the average home heater needs to be able to get that warm temperature (and more) for the least amount of time possible. This is why many new construction homes have a timer on the heater.
