112Kickspace Heater, White, 1500W 240VAC, 750/1500W 120VAC, with built-in thermostat.

  • Kickspace heaters have a low-profile design that provides floor-level heat from an out-of-the-way location. Great idea for light-commercial applications such as ticket/toll booths or checkout counters where ducting isn’t possible. Factory wired at 1500W at 240VAC can be easily converted to 750W or 1500W at 120V for added versatility.

    • White grille has a baked enamel finish and one-piece design for durability
    • Vertical louvers disperse heat evenly across the width of the grille and the built-in front-mounted thermostat offers a simple way to control the level of heat
    • No extended warm up time due to an efficient steel sheathed, plate-finned heating element that provides comfortable heat in seconds
    • Quiet, thermally protected motor shuts off in event of overheating and transverse blower circulates heated air for optimal room warming. UL Listed for safety.
    • Slim design tucks under cabinet kickspaces, vanities, stairways or any place where space is limited and a little extra heat is desired to make your environment cozier
    • Kickspace 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

  • 112 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy fan This costs twice what a small portable heater costs and is twice as loud. It's louder than the bathroom exhaust fan. It's just a tin can with a fan and heating element.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Broan Kick Plate Heater I had this heater installed in a newly remodeled bathroom by a electrical contractor. Appeared that the install was pretty straight forward and they hooked up to run on 220v. It can be installed either with 110 or 220 volts. The heater works fine and I have it set with the thermostat so it comes on automatically when the room cools to a preset temperature. The fan is a bit noisy and would be nice if it ran a bit quieter, but overall it has been just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from gives off good heat Really would recommend product. The fan went out, since having the product, which was not an issue. Company exchanged fan without a problem and it was a very simple fix. I would definitely purchase again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silent, even, immediate heating when needed. Purchased a summer home with this unit in the kitchen. It was very noisy at first and seemed awful. After a remodel job the heater was removed and installed by an electrician. Now is nearly silent and seems to be a really nice feature. It is linked to a baseboard heater near-by and a wall thermostat. On a cold morning you get nearly immediate heat which is nice in conjunction with the slower to appear baseboard heat. -JCM Kewaunee, WI.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced older kick space heater Older version was inoperative - glad I could still get a replacement.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with the performance. Contractor installed three of these when we remodeled our kitchen and added a small mud room six years ago. One of them, the one in the kitchen, operates silently as promised. The other two in the mudroom were quite noisy from the start. The heating element on one of the noisy ones recently burned out. Not a particularly long life, and weak performance.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heater is Great But Much Cheaper Elsewhere This heater does the job and works great for a 1000 sq. ft. kitchen however it is $20-$30 cheaper on other websites even with their "sale" price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product! I bought this kick plate heater for my laundry room to replace what I had. I have been using these for the past 7 years and would highly recommend this heater for small rooms that need more heat.

  • The 114 is a 240VAC system; my power source is a three wire system (red, black & white) with ground. The 114 is wired with only black and white.

    The instructions don't address three wire installations.
    Asked by: Steve
    Black and white heater wires go to the 240V supply wires, and ground the heater. The neutral wire is not required with this voltage

    I'm considering the 112 for a small bathroom remodel. I'm concerned about noise. How many decibels is this heater when installed in a cabinet?

    Asked by: Rita
    Thank you for your question on the Broan model 112 kickspace heater. Our heaters are not rated for decibels or sones. Only our exhaust fans are rated with a sone rating. Please contact our Technical Support Department directly at 800-637-1453 for more assistance and discussion.

    With the unit installed in the kick space under a cabniet, where does it get air?

    Does it source its air from under the cab. or does it come from the fornt of the unit and then recirculated throug the unit?

    When you turn the thermostat clockwise the heating element & fan will come on, recirculate and come out the front.

    Is there an option to plug in rather than hard wire the model 112 kickspace heater?

    Asked by: marty
    Thank you for your question on the model 112 kick space heater. The 112 is only designed to be hard wired to your house power. We do not have an option to plug this unit into an electrical outlet.

    Is the front grill plate 3 5/8" high? (Same as the box rear as shown in the specification drawing)?

    No where do the drawings explicitly show the dimensions of the front grill plate. These are the critical dimensions for determining whether or not this unit can be installed in my available kick space. Thanks you.
    Asked by: Tartaglia
    Yes, the front grille is 3 5/8” high. Please contact us again if you have further questions.
