Last spring, when we opened up the kitchen nook to the mudroom, we pulled out our baseboard heater that was mounted along that wall - and the three others that were in the living room, kids bedroom and our bedroom. Our choice to pull them out weighed on the fact that they take up so much wall space. With the living room baseboard removed we could move our couch to be placed along that wall and we had already run into issues of Luke sticking toys into them - something sure to repeat with Cal. So the decision was pretty easy - potential house fire and increased usable space meant they had to go.
Rather than live 1900s style and just rely on our wood stove (that isn't even functioning at the moment) we had to find replacements. Size, safety and high-efficiency were all things we hoped to find in our new heaters. I had seen the Envi Wall Mounted Convection Heaters advertised in the back of my home magazines and was intrigued. After reading a few reviews, like this one, we decided to pull the trigger and ordered 4. The price wasn't too bad about $120 each (check those home magazines - sometimes there are 15% off coupons in the advertisements section.)
