A maintenance manager at a garden-style community in Portland upgraded from baseboard heaters to the Apex72 to reduce maintenance calls and free up living space for residents.
This contractor saw a big reduction in the cost of parts and labor after swapping out cove heaters for Cadet’s Apex72.
Would it make sense to heat a 3,000-square-foot home just to keep one room comfortable?
Learn how to install the Apex72 electric heater in an existing wall.
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.
