Electric Wall Heaters: Add Supplemental Heat to Your Room

Electric wall heaters are an excellent way to add supplemental heat to any room. Radiant heating panels work by using infrared heat to radiate warmth directly from the panel to the solid objects in the room.

Not only are these wall-mounted radiant panels functional, but they are also a much more elegant and safe way to add supplemental heat to an area than traditional space heaters. And it's a great way to experience the comfort and luxury of radiant heating without having to replace your floor in order to install a floor heating system.

LAVA® Frequently Asked Questions


No, a LAVA radiant panel can't be mounted on the ceiling. 

We recommend a 3/4" edge joint/space perimeter around the glass for air circulation and easier installation. Furthermore, no flammable materials may be used around the LAVA. It's required by UL that the “On/Off” switch must be operable and visible. Please check with your local electrical code prior to installing your Lava panel for restrictions on placement.

Radiant heat travels through air, and typically heats up objects closer to the panel first and then the rest of the room later. Heat from the panel can be easily detected from about 3-4 feet. Ideally, the radiant panel should be aimed onto the area with more use, since that will be the surface that will warm up first.

Verify that the mounting bolts are fully tightened on the rail. If not, tighten them until snug. If bolts are tight, look behind the LAVA and check to see if the rail is touching the rear of the enclosure.  If it is—that is the cause of the sound. Solution: Take some felt, and attach it in between the rail and enclosure.

Verify 120V power at the connection to the panel at the junction box at the rear of the panel. Verify the panel power switch is in the "ON" position (if equipped). LAVA internal temperature limiters may have actuated.  Turn off the unit using the "Power" switch on the panel and wait 30-60 minutes for the unit to reset. Turn the unit back on and operate normally.

If you experience additional issues, please give us a call at 1-800-875-5285.

A LAVA panel cannot be installed in "wet locations" such as showers or saunas. The top, bottom, and sides of the unit must not be closer than 12 inches from any other object or surface in order to effectively radiate heat. The LAVA panels may not be placed behind doors. Please check with your local electrical code prior to installing your LAVA panel for restrictions on placement.

Ember Frequently Asked Questions


No, an Ember radiant panel can't be mounted on the ceiling. 

Radiant heat travels through air, and typically heats up objects closer to the panel first and then the rest of the room later. Heat from the panel can be easily detected from about 3-4 feet. Ideally, the radiant panel should be aimed onto the area with more use, since that will be the surface that will warm up first.

The heater is very hot during use (depending on model, up to 125° C or 257ºF).

The startup heating time is approximately 5 to 10 minutes. However, your room will not feel warmer immediately because the cold objects in the room (furniture, walls, ceilings, floors, etc.) need to warm up first. Once these surfaces are heated, the warmth will spread throughout the room.

Verify 120V power at the connection of the panel to the circuit at the junction box in the wall, or at the outlet for plug-in models. Each Ember heater has a built-in safety switch that turns off the heating element automatically if it overheats. By unplugging the unit and waiting for about 10 to 15 minutes, the safety switch will reset automatically and the unit will be operational again.

How do Radiant Panels Work? Infrared Heating

If you've ever stood outside on a cold day but felt warm because you were in the sunlight, you've experienced infrared heat. These rays from the sun heat the people and objects they come into direct contact with instead of the air. Infrared radiant panels operate the same way – except from inside the home. Wall mounted electric heaters work by heating the walls, ceiling and objects in a room, which store the warmth and then release it back into the room slowly and evenly. Electric wall heaters offers additional benefits over both wall mounted gas heaters and wall mounted propane heaters because of the increased level of safety and consistency in heat output.

This heating technique can save energy costs and eliminate the circulation of allergens such as dust. Plus, WarmlyYours radiant panels deliver these benefits in the form of modern, stylish panels.
