Product Overview

The 400-Watt Wexstar Infrared panel heaters are economical to use and an environmentally responsible alternative to 1500-Watt heaters. Using the same principle as the sun, Wexstar infrared heaters generate Infrared rays which are gently distributed uniformly across the room, and are absorbed by objects and walls that release the heat back evenly creating an overall feeling of warmth. This maintenance-free heater are built to last and can save up to 70% on heating costs. Great for bedrooms, offices, kitchens, basements, etc. The heater is ideal for rooms up to 120 sq. ft. Can be used for residential, commercial or industrial applications.
  • Conventional heaters heat the surrounding air, hot air stays at the ceiling and the heat is distributed unevenly; Wexstar infrared technology works more efficiently and evenly by heating objects rather than the air, and using a fraction of the electricity
  • No fan means 100% quiet and no stirred-up dust, ideal for people suffering from asthma or allergies
  • Can be mounted on the wall, or on the floor with Wexstar stand support separate accessory
  • Easily plug to a standard electrical 120-Volt outlet and does not require any professional installation
  • Wexstar heaters are free of maintenance and no further costs or parts to be replaced

Is the surface hot to the touch when operating?

Asked by Andy February 9, 2020
2
Answers

The Panel uses infrared technology, it is necessary for it to get hot in order to effectively emit heat. It is not recommended to touch the heater when on. If installed on the wall you can always install anywhere out of reach, or on the celling.

The rate of warmth is directly related to the room's configuration and what ever structures are in the room. The heat is very directional. I installed mine from the ceiling and it works well, but two large windows have a very major effect and take away a lot of the radiant heat.

Is there an adaptor for a thermostat/timer control? on-off, timer, temperature control, etc.?

Asked by Scott October 8, 2019

Answers

It just has a normal plug. You can purchase a thermostat / timer control separately. Home Depot offers a Wexstar branded one and others (less expensive, at least in some cases) which will work.

Either. It comes with an off/on switch, and a thermostat can be purchased separately.

Is there an off/on switch and if so where is it located?

Asked by Michael January 22, 2019

Answers

Where one plugs it in to the electrical outlet. Easy to use and view.

What does this look like when not in use? Is the fire image visible? Would prefer plain white but not available.

The plain white is now available (2-19-2019)

Will this heater cover a 250 sqaure foot room

Asked by Pete November 17, 2018

Answers

Yes it will, but you must decide what warmth you’re looking for. For me taking out the chill factor was the goal and not to bring temperature up higher. For higher temperatures you will need the 600 watt, or two 400 watt panels.

Cup warmer
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I’m not sure how this got any good reviews. I put it in an insulated van, and it only raised the temperature 2 degrees. I left it in for two days, and it didn’t improve. I brought it indoors to my basement guest room, and again, it only warmed it by two degrees. I’m using it correctly, and experimented with different orientations and locations. If I lay it facing up, it might be a nice cup warmer. I discarded the packaging, so I’m not sure I can return it.

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We have reached out to the manufacturer and their reply is, Thank you for your valuable feedback. With the Wexstar heater you will notice the heat is not aggressively blasting you, the panel rather heats in a gentle and non overwhelming manner. Besides, because Wexstar heaters do not have a fan they are completely quiet. By leaving the heater in a closed insulated room, you will sense a significant warmth and temperature increase.

This unit works very well. The reason I give a "good" rather than an excellent is that in making the calculation for the room I intended to heat I ended up still needing extra warmth due to two large windows in the area of the Wexstar unit (my bad!). I wish the pre-sale info was more comprehensive

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We have reached out to the manufacturer and their reply is,We are sorry if you were not satisfied with this heater. Wexstar strives to provide the highest heating quality & performance with the lowest possible energy consumption. Wexstar does not use the same technology than most high consumption heaters, most heaters consume about four times more in electricity compared to the 400w, generating higher electrical bills (Wexstar heaters pay themselves in the long run). The far-infrared heat the Wexstar provides is therapeutic, providing numerous health benefits. Because Wexstar heaters do not have a fan, not only will they make absolutely no noise, but you will notice the heat is not aggressively blasting you, the panel rather heats in a gentle and non overwhelming manner.Leaving the heater in a closed insulated room, you should definitely sense a significant warmth and temperature increase within a room that is up to 120 sqft. Like all heating devices this will always vary depending on various factors such as room insulation, outside temperature, central heating, additional windows and doors, ceiling height, etc. Note you can always move one model higher with the 600W or the 800W unit.

Easy to install, provides constant heat. I don't actually feel it from as far away as I thought I might, but overall it is doing the job. The cord might have been a bit longer, and a right-angle plug would be better. As to how long it will last, that is yet to be seen. It has only been installed for about a month. But at this point I am satisfied with the purchase.

I placed this in a small room (10'x10'). I read about infrared technology and what it was supposed to do, and how it supposed to heat up / warm nearby objects. Nope, didn't happen. You can feel the heat if you put your hand about 8" from the surface, that's pretty much it. The frame behind the panel, as well as the border frame does get quite hot though. But other than that, didn't work to my liking.

We are sorry that you were not satisfied with this heater. The 400W panel heater was been successfully tested to heat up areas of up to 120 sqft. Like all heating devices this will vary depending on various factors such as the room insulation, outside temperature, number of windows and doors, if the room is open or enclosed, ceiling height, etc. Note you can also move one model higher with the 600W unit. Also, Wexstar does not use the same technology than most high consumption money wasting heaters, Wexstar strives to provide the highest heating quality & performance with the lowest possible energy consumption. This means no noisy fan dispersing hot air or dust blowing across the room, instead like the sun Wexstar’s far infrared heating technology provides pleasant yet effective heat that offers many health benefits such as increasing blood circulation and raising the body's surface temperature in a natural, comfortable way without blowing dry air or humidity in to the room. This heat is meant to be gentle, not overwhelming.

I had purchased the Wexstar 600 and it worked great... the flat panel takes up little space, no fan, and heats the room perfectly. We then purchased the Wexstar 400 for one of the smaller rooms, and have not been disappointed !

Did not want other type of heaters for many safety reasons. Did the research on this product and even contacted manufacturing company suppling all the info I needed. Have been using panel heater for one week. My focused was not to heat room into the mid seventies degrees, but more so to take the chill out of the room (pets). To this end it worked out well. Outside temp has been in the low 30’s. Turned on unit at 11pm to 7am and brought the (enclosed) room up to 67degrees, which is what I wanted. NOTE: The room size exceeds what is recommended the panel heater is designed for. I knew this from the beginning after measuring the room. No surprises. The product is unobtrusive, easy to mount, will not burn a person, it is warm to the touch, has an LED light when turned on, works well with a timer, it’s thin. Couldn’t be happier.
