Vintage electric heaters are not only more attractive than today’s, but are typically more effective and well-made than modern units from the big box store. This page has a variety of permanently-installed and plug-in portable vintage electric heaters to keep you warm in style.

Ceil Heat Vintage Electric Heater
This Ceil Heat vintage electric heater is an in-wall flush-mount type heater with an attractive retro chrome grill panel cover and an orange glowing ceramic element. This Ceil Heat panel heater was made in Knoxville, Tennessee and is complete with steel mounting box. A simple black bakelite knob turns the heat on and up, and the heater runs on standard 110v household power. This Ceil Heat was used, but it has been tested and thoroughly cleaned. It is designed to be hard-wired when installed into the wall, but we connected a standard plug to the existing wiring and it worked perfectly. The chrome is in nice and shiny condition with no rust or dents. There are some tiny pitting specks in the chrome, as well as some minor scuffs from normal use and cleaning, but they do not detract from the overall appearance. The panel measures 19 inches x 11 inches, back panel cover measures 17.25 inches x 8.25 inches x 4 inches (which will be the size of the cutout hole needed in your wall to mount this heater).[phpbay]vintage wall heater, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , [/phpbay]
