Learn how to install the Apex72 electric heater in an existing wall.
Do you have a Com-Pak Twin heater and want a built-in thermostat with an “off” setting? You’ll need to pick up a CTT2 thermostat and install it on the heater yourself.
Lucky for you, the video above will show you exactly how to do that. (And if you already have a built-in thermostat that you need to remove, we have a video for that too.
We’ve shown you how to remove the built-in thermostat from a Com-Pak wall heater, now we’re going to show you how to do the same thing with a Com-Pak Twin.
Why would you want to do that? Depending on where you live and what store you like to shop at, it can be easier to find a Twin heater with a built-in thermostat than one without one. You can just get rid the thermostat yourself by removing a few screws and cutting one connection on the back of the heater.
If you upgrade, change or move a heater, you might need to repair a hole in your drywall. Fear not, it’s not too complicated of a process if you just follow this guide from Javier from our maintenance department.
Your baseboard heaters should be cleaned once every two years at the very least.
Over time dust particles and other things on the air can build up on the fins inside the heater. When that happens the fins can scorch the particles. That can give off a slight odor and cause problems for people with allergies.
Thankfully, cleaning a baseboard shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes. Just follow this video to see how it’s done. And if you need to know how to clean a wall heater, we have a video for that too.
If you’re reading this blog post chances are you’re either one of our loyal followers (thank you very much) or you purchased a Com-Pak, Com-Pak Bath, Com-Pak Max or Energy Plus and are wondering “What the heck do I do with these little foam thingies I found inside the box?”
If you’re in the later group, this blog post should answer all your pressing questions.
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.
