When the VHA and Share needed to upgrade aging electric baseboard heaters at Orchards Inn, a 13-room temporary housing shelter for families in Southwest Washington, they partnered with Cadet to install the Apex72 electric wall heater.



Share and VHA needed heaters that:
  • wouldn’t limit furniture placement in the rooms, which often have multiple beds
  • would effectively and quickly heat living spaces
  • were easy to control
  • improved upon building firewall requirements


  • The Apex72 heater is installed six feet above the floor, adding new floor space for furniture and now completely out of the way of children
  • New heaters circulate warm air throughout the room, quietly and efficiently
  • New electronic thermostats are easy-to-control, bring greater comfort to the residents, and offer energy savings not available with old fashioned thermostats
