Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HGTVFAN Good Extra Heat
There is a small room that does not get enough heat from the central hvac system. This Cadet Com-Pac in wall electric heater fit the bill. I did not install this myself as a 240 line needed to be run by the electrician. Other than that, it was not a difficult unit to install. I watched as only a few steps with a few parts, wire connecting and screws were needed. This unit has a built in thermostat, so no wall thermostat is needed. As I did not notice that beforehand, I was glad not to have to go out to get one. This heater puts out a decent amount of heat and the fan is pretty quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KitchenKing Good, Solid, Reliable Little Heater.
Got this unit to add heat to a 12 x 16 foot storage shed. I keep various liquids and things that should not be frozen in the shed and I decided that I needed a heater for those few nights in South Texas when the temperature dips below freezing. It's worked so well that I actually use the shed as a workshop quite comfortably in the winter. Installation is very simple, but I needed a friend of mine who is an electrician to wire it up. It was relatively simple, but I hadn't messed with 220 before. Better safe than sorry. I like the thermostat, just set it and forget it. I'm very happy with this little guy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThisOldGarageNJ Great Additional heat you can add anywhere
When I remodeled my bathroom, I decided to vault the ceiling. Which added an additional 168
cubic feet of space. I tried to compensate by adding a 6 foot hot water baseboard, 4 feet longer than the
original 2 footer that was there. which was enough, but on those really cold mornings if the heat didn't kick in yet the floor would be cold and the air a little chilly for taking a shower. I decided to give the Com-Pak 1000 watt heater a try.
I had a 220 volt line running thru the attic I could tap into, since it was a dedicated line for an air conditioner it would be fine because I would never be using both at the same time. I did however change the circuit breaker to a GFCI since the heater was less than 2 feet away from the shower. Total installation time was less then 2 1/2 hours. Now in the morning when I go in to first use the bathroom, I turn the heater thermostat to high, and a few minutes later the bathroom is really hot, which is just the way I like it to take a shower in the winter. An average DIYer could easily tackle this project with the exception of the electrical. If you are not experienced it definitely pays to hire an electrician to run your 220 line. This is a solid well made heater and should provide years of warmth

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edgy Very efficient wall heater!
The Com-Pak 1,000 watt 240-volt heater is an efficient and easy way to add heat to a room. It will cover a room at least 150 sf, which is quite nice. It is great not to have to install any ducting to get heat. It has many installation options, which is a big plus. The fan is very quiet. The heater has a safety feature that turns the heater off automatically if the temperature gets too high. The finish is of a high-quality and long lasting powder coating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sweetlitehoney Cadet Com-Pak 1,000-Watt 240-Volt Fan-Forced In-Wall Electric Heater in White
I love it. It heats up very quickly. It is not as loud as I thought it was going to be. I only had to turn the dial a little bit to heat the room. Im so happy my husband told me about it. It works great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JLFixit not durable
Only bought this unit because it was a direct replacement for the existing unit and would not have to modify the wall. the old heater lasted about 10 years but was recalled so I bought this from Cadet to replace the defective ones that still worked. This replacement unit only lasted 3 years. Not acceptable at all for me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rdel1 Bad switch
I purchased an extra wall unit. When I got around to install it over 13 months later, it would not shut off. I did not send it back because I figured that it was outside the warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by granitefalls4x4 Great for specific heating needs
Electric baseboard and these type blower fan heaters are not efficiant compared to many other home-heating systems, but if this is what your home came with (as mine did), there are few better choices. I have 8 of these Cadets in different sizes (4 1000 watt, 2 2000 watt, and 2 1500 watt and they all last for a long time and are quiet. Long time meaning more than 10 years for over half of them, one died after 15 years running with a crayon stuck in the heater element for over 7 years (daughter) so fair warning, YOU MUST CLEAN THEM oF DUST regularly however. I even installed one in my 34 ft RV (under the master bed, blowing forwards through the whole RV) and wired a dedicated 240v circuit to feed it for along side my home for winter use. The wall covers come in several colors and are coated metal (meaning very easy to repaint, I have two painted in heat resistant black). A bargain for the price.
