Wall Heaters To Help Not Turn Furnace On
January and Single Digits…Haven’t Used Furnace Yet – Find Out How
It’s now 2020 and I had success with Wall Heaters as Primary Heat Source. However I did run into a snag. My original goal was 68 degrees. But I now have a housemate with a medical condition (Thyroid Gland Issues). He needs 72 degrees. So can I still heat home with wall heaters? The answer is YES! I modified the setup a bit. For the large open living room I now have these below in place strategically placed. Some days it’s near zero degrees and this setup works:
The kitchen which is attached to the living room making it even more difficult to heatHowever, it has the 600 watt amaze-heater too. Both the 600 watt amaze heater and Heat Storm heater are now side by side next to the recliner in the living room. There’s also a 400 watt Amaze Heater in the room too. These Amaze Heaters are used primarily. Then I use the Heat Storm heater when I need more heat. Another type of Heat Storm heater is in the hallway. And heats the bathroom too and more areas. So all helps for the 72 degrees goal and Wall Heaters as Primary Source Heat.
How Wall Heaters Can Be Your Primary Source Heat
Selecting the Best Wall Heaters For The Job
There’s all types of wall heaters including wall panel heaters and they are all different in what they offer, their pros and cons and some are better than others. These are the ones I use alone below or as combo below as Wall Heaters As Primary Heat Source. I find I turn the furnace on less often. During the day I find the best combo for the current situation. Homes vary and people are comfortable at different temperatures. I’m OK with 68 degrees and that’s my goal. My new goal is 72 degrees. Modification to setup made this a reality too. Some people think 68 degrees is too cold. Some people want every room in the home to be the same temperature. I don’t. If I’m not using a room for a while I don’t always heat it. For me some rooms with doors I even get too hot at times. But no matter what Wall Heaters can make the furnace come on less often. I also use Wall Heaters for Cold Bathrooms. They help a Cold Bathroom a lot and are alternative heating for homes. Wall Heaters are low cost home heating alternatives.
Right now I’m using these low cost energy efficient heaters as Primary Heating Source. These are alternative energy efficient heating options. This does not mean I don’t turn my furnace on at all. I turn it on far less often so save money.
Other Wall Panel Heaters
These are my favorite heaters. I use either the Insta Heater or the Heat Storm with wall panel heaters on colder days and nights. I’d say I use wall panel heaters the most. They cost pennies a day to use!

Wall Heaters as Primary Source Heat – Mission Accomplished!
I’ve used space heaters and electric fireplaces but the electric wall panel heaters impress me the most. They are not exactly nice looking like a fireplace but in typical-sized rooms (10×10 or 12×12) with a closed door, they really provide the right amount of heat to keep one warm and cost pennies a day to use. Best of all you can turn that thermostat down and have the furnace start less often in the winter. The pros do outweigh the cons of the wall panel heaters…
- easy to install (The Amaze-Heater and Cozy-Heaters even offer the Easy No Drilling Installation Option!)
- easy to use
- safer than fireplaces
- do not cost a lot to buy
- small in size and flat on walls
- can be painted
- Can be fragile
- There’s usually a brief initial smell but if lasts for a long time just contact support
Regarding being fragile…certain models like the original econo-heaters can be like eggs. If hit or not installed right they can crack. But in fairness, the crack if not severe can be fixed with silicone caulking. But there’s other wall panel heaters that are a bit less fragile like the Amaze-Heater. I’ve cracked a few econo-heaters in the past and either the manufacturer replaced the unit if it cracked within the warranty time or told me how to fix it. But being fragile is really the only negative thing I can say about wall panel heaters. They are awesome!
