“High utility costs have spurred an interest in zone heating here in the U.S. as consumers look for ways to warm their living spaces economically,” said Christyana Hopkinson, ECO-heater sales manager.

As one of the leading manufacturers of economical, supplemental heating solutions, ECO-heater offers several models of ceramic wall-mounted heaters, including some with prices starting under $100.

Using ECO-heater wall panel heaters is an efficient way to add supplemental heat only where desired. This practice of warming rooms as needed rather than the entire house is known as zone heating and can be a cost-effective heating method for homes of all sizes and ages.

“High utility costs have spurred an interest in zone heating here in the U.S. as consumers look for ways to warm their living spaces economically,” said Christyana Hopkinson, ECO-heater sales manager.

In southern states without harsh winters, supplemental heating units such as ECO-heater’s wall panel heaters are the perfect choice. They can reduce the chill in a typical-size bedroom or home office without the expense of operating a central HVAC system.

“Even in a new home or a well-insulated home with central heating, some rooms can be colder than others because of their placement and distance from the furnace,” Hopkinson explained. For example, a bedroom over a garage will tend to get colder faster than an interior space. Or, a guest bedroom may only need increased warmth when visitors stay. Plus, different people have different comfort levels—someone may always be hot while another always cold.

“With zone heating, supplemental warmth can be added only where and when it’s needed,” said Hopkinson. “The result in an overall reduction in energy consumption compared to having to run the furnace longer or higher.”

In addition to controlling temperature comfort at the room level, ECO-heater’s wall panel heaters offer quiet performance. Unlike typical space heaters, they do no use fans that cause unwelcomed background noise. Rather, the air between the panel and the wall is heated then rises, which causes cool air to be naturally drawn up from below the unit, which in turn is heated and rises, so as the cycle repeats warm air is circulated silently throughout the room. The effectiveness of the heater can be improved with a heat reflector that is included with ECO-heater. The heat reflector adheres to the wall behind the unit, so the reflector prevents warm air from being absorbed into the wall and keeps more warm air circulating in the room.

This Silent Flow™ convection heating technology allows ECO-heaters to use only 400 watts of electricity versus 1,500 for most floor-model space heaters. Furthermore, ECO-heater’s T-Series units have built-in thermostats for temperature control and even greater efficiency.

Zone heating using ECO-heaters also is scalable.

“A homeowner can install as many wall-mounted heaters as needed for the size of the space,” said Hopkinson. “Use one in the bedroom, a few for the family room, or several in the finished basement rec room.”

She pointed out that ECO-heaters are easy to install, and most consumers can do so in about 15 minutes. Only common household tools such as a level, drill and screwdriver are needed. Then once mounted securely to the wall, simply plug into a standard outlet to run.
“Best of all, they blend in,” said Hopkinson. “They protrude only an inch from the wall and can be painted to match the décor.”

Rigorously tested to meet the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) standard, each ECO-heater is designed to provide years of maintenance-free service and is backed with a three-year manufacturer’s warranty.
