Tools required to install a wall heater include a cordless drill, hole saw, 4-in-1 screwdriver, tape measure and stud finder. Also helpful are a pipe wrench, clamps, circular saw, drywall saw and lineman's pliers. Further tools required include an extension cord, non-contact voltage tester and utility knife.
Methods of installation vary by different types of heaters. Different sizes and varieties of drill bits, screwdrivers and wrenches may be required.
A wall heater installation project takes between one and three days and is moderately complex. A homeowner or contractor should review the steps involved in installing a wall heater before attempting the job, as many variables can complicate the project.
