1) Our selection of thermostats allows you to heat only the rooms that are in use, which cuts your energy usage and saves you money.
2) Heaters mount on the wall, taking up no usable space so furniture can be placed against the walls, etc.
3) Great for rooms with high ceilings.
Compare to Competing Brand
Our 585-watt cove heater provides a 52 percent radiant heat output advantage compared to the competing brand 600-watt cove heater, which has a similar efficiency of a traditional baseboard heater. This results in greater comfort using less energy!

Are all cove heaters created equally? The style of many of the other cove heaters on the market all uses the same type of heating element and emitter. The heating element is often a long thin tube, that basically has the type of wire that heats up in your toaster, embedded in a metallic tube. There is an aluminum emitter (the front of the cove heater you see), and it has a notch in the back where that tube sits. Only the tube gets hot, and the heat disperses from there. This gives you a hot spot where the tube is and it gets cooler as you move further out from the tube. These heaters in similar wattages as our cove heaters often take up significantly more wall space (E.g. The Intertek 1000W cove heater from takes up 8 feet of wall space and the 1250W heater takes up 10 ft. Whereas, compared to our REH 1000W and 1500W cove heaters that each only take up 4 ft of wall space. Our cove heaters elements are a circuit that directly covers the surface area of the backside of the element, so the whole surface heats up, not just the strip in the middle. The radiant output is a function of surface temp over the surface area, meaning that the more surface area you have hot, the more radiant output compared to convective for the same amount of power input. In short, our cove heaters operate more efficiently and produce better heat output.
