Did you know some of our Register wall heaters can be wired to output different amounts of heat (or wattage)? Learn how to change the wattage on these multi-watt heaters — models RM162, RM168 and RM151 — in the video above.
We worked architects and contractors on the design of our newest heater, the Apex72. We wanted to design a heater that would go high up on the wall, so it can maximize the available living space. Architects wanted a heater that had no visible screws and an updated design.
As we were getting ready to launch the heater, we sent it to our friends at Orient Electric for testing. They suggested we create a part that can help streamline the install process and help keep the grill flush with the wall. We took their feedback and created a part, which we affectionately call “the Orient Ring,” to do just that.
In a new construction installation, the ring is installed on the framing before drywall goes up. Once the wall is painted and textured, you use a spiral saw to cut along the inside of the Orient Ring. You’ll end up with a hole that is perfectly sized for the heater’s wall can.
But enough with the talking, just check out the video above to see how it works.

We’ve already showed you how to switch the TH114 non-programmable thermostat from Celsius to Fahrenheit now it’s time to learn how to do the same thing for the TH115 thermostat, which is a programmable model.
Our Com-Pak Bath heater comes wired for 240-volt connections, but can be changed to work with 120-volt power.
Watch this quick video to find out how to make the change.
Not sure what voltage you need? Don’t guess. Be sure to doublecheck your circuit, especially when you’re replacing an old heater. If you hook a heater up to the wrong voltage it will fail.

Remember the difference between a double-pole and single-pole thermostat? (Hint: Double-pole thermostats have an off setting. Single-pole thermostats just have a “low” setting.)
Well, if you want to have a built-in thermostat with an off setting installed on your Com-Pak wall heater, you’ll need to order a CTT2 thermostat from your favorite home improvement store or our factory store online.
If your heater came with a built-in thermostat, you’ll need to remove it first.
From there, you’ll need to install the thermostat on the heater yourself. Don’t worry, this video will show you exactly how to do it.
Oh, and if your heater already has a built-in single-pole thermostat, you can see how to remove it in our video post.
If you walk into a big box store to buy a Com-Pak wall heater, chances are the only models you’ll find on the shelf have built-in thermostats. Those are handy if you’re looking for a simple new install, but not necessary if you plan on using your heater with a wall thermostat.
If you want to use your heater with a wall thermostat, you have a few options. You can special order a unit without a built-in. You can override the built-in thermostat by turning it to the highest (hottest) position and just using the wall thermostat to control the heater’s output. But the most simple solution of all is to just remove the built-in thermostat.
Don’t worry folks, it isn’t as complicated as it may sound. You just need to remove a few screws and cut one wire. This video will show you exactly how to do it.
All electric heat is 100 percent efficient, but how effective is a Cadet electric heater at heating your home? Find the answer in this week’s blog post.
It’s OK to install a wall heater on an outside wall when you’re upgrading from a baseboard heater, there’s just a few things to watch out for.
Thomas with Cadet’s Tech Support team shows you which connection to cut when wiring a Cadet baseboard heater on the left-hand side. (With video.)
