I’ve been using a Envi Heater to supplement or replace the heat in my spare bedroom office for the last month or so. I usually am up before everyone else in the “big house” and don’t turn up the heat in the morning. I turn this slim, quiet, little wall heater on and it soon has my 10×10 office quite comfortable. Even when we have been down in the single digits it seems to do its job in keeping me warm.
One of the neat things about this little heater is that it is so easy to install. It comes with a template to set up where you need to put the clips to hold it to the wall. I put this up in less than 10 minutes and it feels solid and I don’t have to worry about it falling off the wall and burning anything. It is quiet unlike many electric heaters. I never hear it but only feel its heat.
I recently was visiting a tiny house in Portland, Oregon and the owner said that they use it as the main heating source for the tiny house. Portland is more mild than here in Bend so in most cases it fulfills its duty. She said when it is extremely cold that they pull out an additional radiant heater and between the two of them it is always toasty.
So if you are living on the grid and have electricity and are looking at heater options I would suggest you check out the Envi heater. It is affordable and attractive and easy to install.
