I have a small home ~800 sq ft in a mountain climate that gets quite cold in the winters (10s-20s F in the day in the winter). I already have a pellet stove but the other existing heat comes from two baseboard electric heaters that I'm replacing with cadet compak forced air 2000W wall heaters.
This is the existing placement of the baseboard heaters (below the window in the dining room and below the window in the bedroom):
The easiest thing to do, given that the wires are already there, would be to put the wall heaters right where the old baseboard heaters were. That would look like (where the wall heaters are the red squares):
In the bedroom, this means the heater is pointing towards the door (the wall mounted thermostat is also opposite of the heater). Additionally, both heaters would be on outside walls, and thus have no insulation behind them. It appears that Cadet recommends this install when upgrading from baseboard heaters - however im concerned about the lack of insulation in our cold climate. In the bedroom space, I could probably move the heater fairly easily to this wall and place it so that the hallway door when open doesn't block it (note the door to the right of it is actually a slider so wouldn't block it either):
However, there is an outlet on that wall that I may need to remove, which further complicates things. I'm also not sure of a better option for the dining room space other than the current spot.
Is it worth trying to move the heaters to an interior wall, I'm not really sure what to do here. Any other suggestions on placement given what my area looks like would be great.. Thanks!
