They have to be hard wired and I would recommend wiring a light switch into the circuit, as the heater does not have an on/off switch.

Answer: 
Yes, as long as the switch or timer is rated to handle the watt's, or amps at the voltage you are using (watts = amps multiplied times volts). I put mine on a timer so my wife wouldn't forget to turn it off.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Yes, you can get a wall switch to turn the heater off. Please review model 69W (white), or 69V (ivory). You have to have a 120 V 20 AMP switch since this is a heater. I hope this is helpful. If you have further questions and would like to speak with a Technical Support person, please dial 888-336-6151. Thanks, again.

Answer: 
Yes, but it is similar to any 1500W heater that you would plug into the wall. So, it is not blowing out with the force of your HVAC vents, but it does nicely in a bathroom.

Yes, a little loud but it moves the air well. I installed mine 6" up from the floor, the louvers are tilted downwards so it makes a great foot and shoe warmer...and my cat is assured I installed it solely for her...it turns on and she appears to soak up the heat!

Answer: 
Unless you are 100% positive no obstructions will interfere with the air flow or fall against it, leaving a space heater like this on unattended is not a great idea. However, if installed properly (electrically especially-240V recommended) and kept clear of potential hazards, this unit appears to be robust enough for continuos use.

You can leave it on all the time... the 'thermostat' is only controlled by a knob but it does cycle on and off to maintain heating. The bill for leaving it on 24/7 could be formidable though.

There is no thermostat to set. There is a dial starting with low all the way to high. While I'm in the room I set it to high. When I'll be out of the room I turn the dial either to low or half way between the two 24/7. If the house is warm or the outside temperature is nice I turn it off.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seen ok so far. Had this unit Installed in a ventless bathroom that gets cold during the Winter. Install took about an hour, because the wood in the wall was thicker than expected and harder to cut through. Overall the unit is a good value for the cost and also looks good cosmetically. Pros: Cost, installation, small footprint, solid looks, heats room well. Cons: No on/off (you can turn it all the way down which basically is almost like an on/off switch. Gets hotter to touch than I expected based on reviews. Surface Gets to hot to hold your hand against. I plan to post a warning sign for surface heat. Seems to blow harder toward left side than centered, or all around vent. Overall I would by again. February 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Made for new installations Bought this heater for a basement bathroom that was already finnished. I made it work, but this heater is made to be installed before the drywall is installed to be able to connect the opposite end of the heater to either the left or right hand stud. If you are installing in a finnished wall you can only attach it to one stud. The cross bar that slides into the top to connect to the other stud can't be used. Other than that the heater works just fine. January 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good but a bit noisy I installed both the Broan Comfort-Flo (12 in. 1500-Watt Wall Heater, 750/1500W 120VAC,1125W 208VAC, 1500W 240 VAC) and the another heater and will compare. Broan is nice because it is multi-wattage/voltage while the other is single voltage/wattage. I'm using the 120v/750W mode and it heats the bedroom nicely. The Broan is at least 3x as noisy vs. the other. Broan is good for bath or bed (if you can sleep through it-we're getting use to it). For the price, the broan is good. I will put more Broan's into the bath. I liked the Broan because it's a horizontal heater and more modern looking and doesn't extend from the wall much. Very easy to install. We also use external thermostats for better control. December 17, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Needed to have to sell home. We have approx a 200 sq ft addition with no heat. We have been using a freestanding unit ($60), which heated the room great. In order to included the area for selling, we had to install this. It does not heat the area as well as the free standing unit. It is noisy and heats the back side of the wall it is installed in. March 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best price This unit has a build in thermostat and for the doit your self weekend warrior is easy to install. I'm running mine on 110 v as a secondary source of heat in a small bedroom. It only comes on as needed and does the job intended. The price is right for a unit that is self contained. October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good heater for the price Installed in my remodeled bathroom, took out my old radiator to save room. Haven't had to use it yet as it is warming up now, but it does work and put off a good amount of heat when I tested it. I don't anticipate any issues with performance, it is not overly noisy, but living in NY I have a higher tolerance for noise. Some reviews said it was too noisy, I don't think it is that bad. I installed it with a switch as the unit only is regulated by a thermostat, I prefer knowing I can turn it off if I want. All in all, it was easy to install, looks, and functions well. I recommend this heater. June 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent wall-mounted bathroom heater The heater was easy to install and great for the price. The only two issues that I have with the heater are: 1) The knob is cheap plastic and will probably break after a little bit of use and 2) it does not have an on/off switch. It has a knob to adjust the temperature but no on/off switch. I suspect that the heater probably will not cycle on in the lowest setting unless it is near freezing. However, I would still feel more comfortable leaving the house knowing that the heater is off. I would recommend installing a light switch to control the heater when you install the heater. The heater does have to be wired. January 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inexpensive, reliable, and efficient heater I had to install a wall heater for appraisal purposes, so I installed this heater and after I finished the installation I realized that it worked as well as the portable heaters I have for each room. Good purchase in general that serves well the purpose of a small electric heater. July 14, 2015
