    Thanks Deek for the great video. I installed these heaters in a tiny house garage conversion and they are super efficient using a patented “Stack Convection Technology” so no fan, zero noise and uses cool air from the floor that circulates thru the unit out the top resulting in a natural flow of warm air around the room. End result … quiet, clean, energy efficient heat. They can also be hard wired if you don’t want to plug them into a wall outlet and up to three units may be put on a thermostat. Since they don’t use much energy would be perfect for off grid. I am surprise that I don’t see them more in tiny house builds.

    I have had an Envi wall heater in my tiny Tumbleweed house since 2009. It is silent, efficient and does not take up much space! I love the heat. I also have a tiny ceiling fan (I strongly recommend them for both heating and cooling) and a tiny Optimus sealed-oil radiator in the bathroom because air does not circulate well into the back end of the house. I don’t like how the RV heaters or heat pumps blow air. In a tiny space you can’t really escape the air current. While the ceiling fan does create some current, it’s not very strong and mostly moves down the walls in winter. So far this winter we have been down into the 20’s and I have not set my Envi any higher than midway on the thermostat dial! I strongly recommend Envi heaters!

    I love, love LOVE my ENVI heater!!! Keeps my tiny House toasty, even down into the teens:) On full power, highest setting, it only draws 4 amps.
    Great solution for heating.

    Alex, I really like what you are doing lately. These How to’s are the best you could do with this page. I like the different Ideas on the different Thows you have been showing but this is a great addition to the page. Well done!!!!

    Can’t find a link to any installation instructions. Would like to know what the minimum clearances, especially the front.

    These sound great but 23% of customer reviews on Amazon were negative, many claiming melted wires, switches and fire.
