Heat Your Room Economically and Safely with the Power of Heat Convection

Cozy-Heater 120400 Electric Wall Mounted Panel Heater, 400 Watts

  • Heats by convection currents, there is no noise and no stirred up dust
  • Attractive slim design with minimal wall protrusion
  • Can be painted to match the decor of your room
  • No exposed electrical elements, low surface temperature will not cause burning

The Cozy-Heater wall mounted panel heater is a safe and economical room heater that works on the principle of convective heat transfer. The Panels are mounted to a wall, in the desired room and location using the hardware provided and simple do-it-yourself installation instructions. Principle of Heat Convection – Hot air rises and gets displaced by cooler air. The panel heater uses this principle to create convective air currents within the room. These currents, gradually move warmer air around the room and create a uniform ambient temperature. Panel heaters do not have a built-in fan or any other moving part, therefore, there is no noise and no stirred-up dust. This eliminates airborne dust problem and is ideal for people suffering from asthma or allergy issues. Cozy panels have top and bottom protruding wings to eliminate fire hazards in case of accidental covering of the heating surface.

The 400 Watt Cozy Heater Panel is also available in 250 Watt and 600 Watt sizes, each sold separately. Read more

A Sophisticated Weather Station Perfect for Any Home or Office

January 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Aspiring meteorologists will be thrilled with this La Crosse Technology wireless weather station. Ideal for darkrooms, greenhouses, or other environments that require a consistent temperature reading, the WS-7014CH records indoor temperature, humidity, and remote temperature as measured by the included TX29U-IT remote sensor. For those who need multiple temperature readings, the unit is compatible with up to three remote sensors, and displays the information in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. If gauging current temperature isn’t enough to satisfy, the station also forecasts upcoming weather conditions based on changing air pressure, employing several user-friendly icons, such as clouds, raindrops, or the sun, in the display. The forecast is approximately 75 percent accurate for 12 to 20 hours.

Like all La Crosse Technology products, the included clock and date indicator receive their readings from the U.S. atomic clock in Fort Collins, Colorado, ensuring that the time is always 100 percent accurate. In addition, the weather station stores both daily maximum and minimum temperatures in its memory. The remote sensor is accurate up to 330 feet away with no obstructions, and approximately 50 to 65 feet away if exterior or interior walls block the weather station. Other features include a 12- or 24-hour time mode and an air-pressure tendency arrow. The unit is comfortable either hanging on a wall or free standing and measures 3-1/2 by 5-1/2 by 1-1/4 inches (W x H x D). Both the display unit and remote require two AA batteries.
