  • This high capacity wall heater is powerful and rugged enough for commercial lobbies, entryways, vestibules, yet sufficiently attractive to fit in with residential decors. Factory wired at 3,000W, at 240V AC, it can be easily converted to 1,500W at 240V AC for added versatility.

    • Heavy-duty, 18-gauge steel grille has downflow louvers to direct heat gently toward the floor and a one-piece design with baked enamel finish for durability
    • Adjustable, front-mounted, heavy-duty thermostat offers a simple way to control the level of heat and thermostat security cover prevents tampering
    • Optional line-voltage wall thermostat (Model 86W sold separately) is available for a convenient way to control the heater
    • Built-in fan-delay allows the heating element to warm up before the fan starts to prevent cold air delivery and then keeps the fan running as the heating element cools down to maximize heat delivery and energy savings
    • Permanently lubricated motor, heavy-duty sheathed element with steel plate fins, and a manual reset thermal overload protector combine to ensure reliable operation and years of trouble free heating. UL Listed for safety.
    • Heater may be recessed or surface-mounted, depending on your application (surface mounting requires Model 85 surface mount kit)
    • Wall heaters are intended to provide supplemental heat from a wall location and not to take the place of a primary 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

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick shipping, easy to install This replaced a Nutone heater that was installed nearly 25 years ago by the previous owner. I was worried about fitting the same cutout, the installation process, etc. But it was really a breeze with the straight-forward instructions. It fit the space with just some moderate shimming. And the wall heater works like a charm--plus the noise level is so much lower. I wish I had done this five years ago! December 18, 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Factory backup is par excellence The 194 is perfectly sized for 1500 cubic feet to give a ten degree temperature change in a few minutes. It is quiet and efficient. Proper placement and 220V are essential. I had problems with fan runnout, motor vibration noise and the temperature sensor did not operate properly upon start-up. I called the factory technical expert. They sent new parts, I installed and perfect operation was beheld. April 24, 2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what my wife wanted I purchased the heater because my wife was complaining that the ceiling heater was not enough for our size bathroom. The purchase and installation went without a hitch. Now the bathroom gets too warm for me, but just what my wife wanted! February 2, 2009

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the 198 wall heater. You will take the total watts divided by 10 to equal the square footage for a warmer climate. This would be 4000 watts divided by 10= 400 square feet based on an 8' ceiling. For a colder climate you will take the wattage divided by 15 to equal the square footage. This would be 4000 watts divided by 15 =266 square feet, also based on an 8' ceiling height. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support team at 800-637-1453.

    Wiring unit from the top

    Brent
    Arlington, WA, USA
     on 198
    Bought a 198 to replace 1 of 3 wall unit in my house, challenge is that all the units I plan to replace are wired in from the top. I do not want to run the wire to the bottom of the unit how would I wire the units from the top? I wanted this to be an easy install which it would have been if there was an option to come in from the top.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 198 wall heater. The 198 only wires from the bottom of the housing. You might check out model 9815WH which does wire in from the top right corner of the housing.

    Double pole ?

     on 198
    Does the 198 require a double pole breaker to run at 240 or will a single pole dedicated 30 Amp breaker still supply 240 volts?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 198 wall heater. The 198 does have a built-in thermostat to keep the temperature at a preset level, but it is made for more of an intermittent operation. Our wall heaters are intended to provide supplemental heat from a wall location and not to take the place of a primary heat source. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
