  • Powerful register heaters are designed to be wall mounted with a register-look, neutral white grille to make them as inconspicuous as they are efficient. Factory wired at 2,000W, at 240V AC, it can be easily converted to 1,00W at 240v AC for added versatility.

    • White grille has downflow louvers to direct heat gently toward the floor and a one-piece design with baked enamel finish for durability
    • Use a line-voltage wall thermostat (Model 87W sold separately) or timer (Models 59V or 59W 60-minute timer or Models 61V or 61W 15-minute timer) for a simple and convenient way to control the heater
    • Rapid warm up time due to an efficient heating element that provides comforting heat in seconds
    • Corrosion-resistant, Nickel-Chrome alloy heating element; manual reset, thermal overload protector; permanently lubricated motor and high efficiency blower wheel combine to deliver efficient operation and durable performance for years of trouble-free heating.
    • Mounts directly to wall studs; housing mask included to prevent construction damage to roughed-in heater. Optional 4-Pack of Rough-in, Housing Only (Model 171H) available for large projects.
    • Wall heaters are intended to provide supplemental heat from a wall location and not to take the place of a home’s main heat source
  • How To Size a Room – Quick Calculation

      Moderate Climate (with 8’ ceiling and adequate insulation)
    • Square Footage x 10 = Watts required
    • Example: 100 Sq. Ft. x 10 = 1,000 Watts

    • Colder Climate (with 8’ ceiling and adequate insulation)
    • Square Footage x 15 = Watts required
    • Example: 100 Sq. Ft. x 15 = 1,500 Watts

    How To Figure BTU’s

    • Wattage x 3.413 (constant) = BTU’s (British Thermal Unit)
    • Example: 1,000 Watts x 3.413 = 3,413 BTU’s
    • Example: 4,000 Watts x 3.413 = 13,652 BTU’s
    • One BTU is the quantity of heat needed to raise one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit

    How To Figure Amperage

    • Watts/Voltage = Amperage
    • Example: 1,000 Watts / 120 Volts = 8.33 Amps

    How To Figure Voltage

    • Watts/Amperage = Voltage
    • Example: 1,000 Watts / 8.33 Amps = 120 Volts

    How To Figure Wattage

    • Voltage x Amperage = Watts
    • Example: 120 Volts x 8.33 Amps = 1,000 Watts
    • Example: 240 Volts x 4.16 Amps = 1,000 Watts

  • 128 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Used to provide extra heat for master bath. Much more attractive option than most wall heaters. Has been going strong for many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wall Heater for Kitchen Product is well made and fairly easy to install. I requested expedited shipping and the product arrived on schedule. I chose the heater to heat a large renovated kitchen with very little wall space so I needed a fan driven model to accomodate that so going in I knew that there would be some noise asociated with that type of heater and am very satisfied with the noise level and its ability to heat the room.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not quite This heater puts out lots of heat but it is way to loud to be used in a living space. When it is on you have to turn up the TV or talk louder till it turns off and the write up on the heater said it had a whisper fan. I think you should try again on the quite fan thing.

  • Thermostat location

    If the heater has a built-in thermostat and is controlled by a line voltage (Broan Model 86) wall thermostat, at which location is the room temperature controlling, at the heater or at the wall thermostat? How far away from the heater should the wall thermostat be located so as not to trigger premature shut-off?
    Asked by: WD2
    Thank you for your question on the model 128 wall mounted register heater. The 128 does not have a built-in thermostat and would require a wall mounted thermostat (our model 86W) to control the unit. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Bathroom wall space is limited so thinking of mounting heater above door. Bathroom has 9' ceilings. Any problems with this idea?

    Asked by: WD2
    Thank you for your question on the model 128 wall heater. Mounting the model 128 in a wall above a door would not be advisable. Since heat rises, your heat will be staying up at the ceiling and would not do a good job in heating the room. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    What are the screws that hold the face plate?

    I roughed this in about a month ago and now I'm not even sure if I still have the original screws. Not that it matters much I imagine but if you could link me to the original screws it would help me see if I still have them.

    What is the noise rating of this unit?

    Asked by: Jtischer
    Thank you for your question on the model 128 register heater. The only products that have sound level ratings are exhaust fans. We do not have sound ratings on wall heaters.
