Eco-Heater. With no fans or exposed heating elements, the wall-mounted Eco-Heater electric panel heater (at right) can warm a 10 foot by 12 foot room and use only as much electricity as four incandescent light bulbs. The design creates a natural convection effect by drawing cold air in at the bottom of the panel, heating the air in the small gap between the heater and the wall, and then directing warm air out the top of the panel. The paintable unit measures 231/4 by 231/4 inches and mounts 3/4 inches from a wall and 6 to 8 inches from the floor. 973.214.5467. www.eco-heater.com.
