Built in thermostat vs wall mounted thermostat


Hi All,

I recently purchased a house and plan to convert the heating from oil to electric. I'm currently looking at getting convection heaters to replace the water heaters and wanted to know of any experiences with built in thermostats on these units (home depot carries the dimplex models) vs putting it on the wall.

Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated with build in thermostats

Thanks

Wow. What is your electric rate. In most areas, oil is still cheaper to heat with then electric baseboard heaters.

Stats on walls tend to make for a warmer more comfortable room.

Electric rate is about 7.5 cents a kw hour. Looking for less maintenance and the insurance companies seem to no longer cover oil damages in the house...

so if the oil tank breaks... don't know what will happen
