Should I use a wall heater or a baseboard heater?

Each type of heater has its own advantages. Review this chart to see which choice is best for you.

TIME TO HEAT Wall heaters use fans to push heat into the room very quickly
Baseboard heaters generally require 30 to 60 minutes to heat a room
WALL SPACE REQUIRED Wall heaters use less wall space
Baseboard heaters tend to use more wall space
NOISE Wall heaters are generally quieter than a regular refrigerator
Baseboard heaters are virtually noise-free; good choice for bedrooms
TEMPERATURES Wall heaters operate at higher temperatures than baseboard heaters
Baseboard heaters operate at lower temperatures, which means their surfaces are cooler to the touch than the surface of wall heaters.
Lifespan Wall heaters will typically last 8 to 12 years
Baseboard heaters often have a life more than 20 years
