Electric Wall Heater

Williams Furnace Company 3144030 Forsaire Electric Counterflow Furnace

Williams Furnace Company 3144030 Forsaire Electric Counterflow Furnace

Electric heaters make sense in places that need heat, but don’t have a gas line. For such spaces, the Williams 3144030 makes a good choice.

This electric furnace uses a “counterflow” heat circulation model, where air is pulled in from the top and dispersed from the bottom. Since heat rises, this system allows it to heat the room more quickly and efficiently. It can be installed as a freestanding unit or recessed into the wall, requiring just 3 inches of recessed space.
