Panel heaters are a great way to heat up your home during the colder months. They’re a form of electric heater that can be easily mounted onto a wall and they come in many different shapes and sizes. Panel heaters are slim, easy to install and quick to heat, making them a popular choice for smaller spaces like a guest room or a bathroom.
Investing in a panel heater is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a stylish and simple way to heat their home. If you’re looking to install a panel heater, check out this easy step-by-step guide.
You’ll want to attach your panel heater to a stud (the wooden foundation behind the plaster in your wall) so that it is secure. To locate a stud, use a stud finder. During this process, you’ll need to check your wall for any existing wires so that you don’t screw or drill into them. A stud finder can help with this.
Alternatively, if there is no stud to drill into, you can install plaster plugs instead.
Once you’ve located your studs or installed your plaster plugs, hold your panel heater up to the area and mark the position on the wall using a pencil.
For a clean and even finish, use a spirit level to ensure the line you’ve drawn is level. If the bubble on your spirit level is centred between the lines on the tube, you’re good to go!
Using a screwdriver, carefully screw the panel heater bracket into the wall on the areas that you’ve marked. Once done, take your panel heater and attach it to the bracket, making sure that everything is in place.
Once you’ve attached your panel heater to the bracket, all that’s left to do is plug your heater into the power-point and switch it on.
You can easily adjust the temperature of your panel heater to suit your preference, which makes it a great choice for those who enjoy a bit more control or prefer separate rooms to have different temperatures. Many panel heaters also allow you to set timers for when you would like the heater automatically switched on and off, as well as child-lock functionalities.
