Electric radiant cove heater for bathroom?


These are new to me. I'm looking for a little supplemental heat in a master bath. We currently use a wall-mounted electric heater but it's a hassle turning it on since it doesn't have a thermostat (and can't use one, in case you were going to suggest that. We're looking at the cove heater as a replacement. Has anyone used one?

For our application it only has to bump the temp up maybe 2F or 3F, not much heat really.

There are several brands out there, but this is just one of many:

Doesn't look like a unit that you turn the heat up and down, looks like a set it and leave it unit. Radiant heat is slow.

Just buy a small electric element heater from big box store and a line voltage thermostat and run the wire behind the wall from the heater to the thermostat.
