Pros & Cons on Toe Kick Heaters?


I've narrowed it down to these two units for my kitchen remodel. This will replace my existing baseboard heat. I can't seem to see any real differences except maybe a little in the install dept. I wanted to hear from any of you that may have installed and used these to hear your comments, and hopefully push me in one direction or the other. Thanks for the feedback.

Pros & Cons on Toe Kick Heaters?


I had a Beacon-Morris kick space heater in a bathroom. It was a little too loud and the heat output was lacking. Wound up getting rid of it.

Pros & Cons on Toe Kick Heaters?


One toe kick is about the same as the other.

Some have higher quality fans. Usually, they are the more expensive ones.

Just remember, a toe kick must be installed as a mono flow if you want it to heat right.

Pros & Cons on Toe Kick Heaters?


They are normally noisy after a year or two and gather mucho dirt. The fans need cleaned usually every other years unless you have pets. Most will give good heat providing they are piped as Beenthere states.
