Cozy Legs Flat Panel Heater, wall mount
on February 5, 2016
The knee space in my desk does not have a privacy panel and my desk is located adjacent to an exterior wall that is cool in the winter. I purchased the Cozy Legs Flat Panel Heater to keep my legs, ankles and feet warm. The panel is attached to the dry wall with adhesive back, Velcro strips that were supplied with the heater. The strips have stayed in place on the wall but came off the panel within the first week, even after carefully using the alcohol wipes provided to clean the attachment surface.
According to my optical pyrometer, the hot face of the panel cycles between 125 F and 145 F. I am not sure how accurate my Harbor Freight pyrometer is, but you will immediately withdraw your hand (without a burn) if you touch the hot panel. This seems consistent with the readings. The back face remains cool to the touch with the panel leaning against the wall, but not attached to the wall. The power cord is reasonably long with the off/on switch in the middle. The switch illuminates brightly when the panel is on. The panel is either off or on at full power.
With the panel on, you end up sitting next to a warm wall, but there is little heat projected into the knee space. My desk has a 1x4" decorative/structural board across the back in the knee area which ends up about 3" from the wall. That board and the electrical cords wrapped around it do not get hot to the touch.
If you are buying this heating panel to compensate for a cool environment, you will be disappointed. Buy a space heater instead. The panel basically keeps you from radiating heat from your body to a cool surface.
