The best wall heaters to keep your room warm and cozy

To heat up air quickly and economically without taking up space, consider a wall heater for an entryway, home office, bathroom, or other key area. These heaters can get the job done no matter where you plan on installing them.

A wall heater sometimes works via convection — warming air above the heater to displace cooler air above it — to evenly distribute hot air throughout a room. Keep these appealing models in mind when you’re exploring the wall-heater market.
