Gas wall heaters are a great alternative when it comes to heating your home. They generally cost a lot less than electric wall heaters and they’re easier to install. They are convenient and safe as well. When it comes to shopping for a wall gas heater, there are some very important things you should know.
First, before you start shopping, determine your budget. This will help prevent issues at the store. If you haven’t given any thought to your budget before you go shopping for a gas well heater, it will be easier for a salesman to talk you in to a more expensive, larger model than you actually need.
Secondly, make sure you have measured the room or rooms you plan on using the gas wall furnace to heat. Different models have different BTU, which means some models are better for heating small space and some are better for heating large spaces. If you end up with a high BTU model for a small space, you have bought more than you needed. Conversely, if you have a low BTU model for a large space, the gas wall heater will be overworked and will likely cost you more money in the long run than if you had purchased a model with an appropriate BTU to begin with.
The best way to ensure that you find the most cost effective and efficient way of heating your space is to discuss the size of the room or rooms you intend on heating with the salesperson when you go shopping for gas wall heaters. Pay attention and don’t allow them to talk you in to more heater than you actually need.
Installation of gas wall heaters is typically pretty easy. Some shops will offer you free installation, but some do not. If you are unsure about your abilities to install a gas heater yourself, make sure that you either get free installation or you inquire about the costs of installation before you buy. Each unit will also come with a gas thermostat to allow you to easily change the temperature in your home or other space at just the touch of a button. Some units even offer a remote control, which allows you to adjust the temperature from anywhere in the room with ease and convenience.
When shopping for a gas wall heater, consider your budget, the space of the area you’d like to heat, and whether or not you will need help with installation and you should have a great shopping experience.
