Stiebel Eltron CK 15E Heater Review
For people looking for a wall-mounted heater, the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E may be what the doctor ordered. The unit attaches to the wall and provides 1,500 watts of heat to any room you desire – without taking up vital floor space.
Due to the design, many people enjoy using this heater in small offices, bathrooms, and guest bedrooms. The sleek design actually adds to the ambiance of a room – no matter the décor.
As the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E is a different style heater than some others we’ve tested, the unit has a variety of unique features. Some of the best aspects in the device include:
- Wall-Mounted: Not to harp, but the wall-mounted nature of this heater is certainly unique. While many space heaters are portable, this unit was designed to heat a small room lacking free floor space.
- Downdraft Design: This wall-mounted heater features a downdraft design that ensures the heat distributes evenly and on the floors. This ensures cold floors are a thing of the past in any room.
- Built-In Thermostat: Self-explanatory, but the unit features a unique built-in thermostat to show the exact temperature. This allows for maximum comfort.
Pros of the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E
One of the better wall-mounted heaters we’ve tested, there are a number of positives found in this unit. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Space Saving
For individuals in need of space saving warmth, it’s hard to beat the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E. Wall-mounted means you’re free to use your floor however you see fit. This means the unit is perfect for bathrooms and small offices.
- Quiet Operation
While many space heaters, especially ones attached to the wall, can be loud, this unit is exceptionally quiet. If you’re using this heater in a bedroom, you shouldn’t have much issue sleeping.
- Fan-Forced Design
As heat rises, a wall-mounted design can mean no heat hits the floor. Not with this unit! The Stiebel Eltron CK 15E combines a downdraft design with fan-forced heat. The device pushes the heat down to the floor to spread the warmth evenly.
Cons of the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E
No heater is perfect, and neither is the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E. Here are a few of our concerns with the device:
- Low Power
You won’t want to use this unit to heat larger rooms (For that, see our space heater reviews guide). This heater is only meant for small rooms like a bathroom, offices, and bedrooms. You’d need multiple units for a larger room.
- Installation Isn’t Easy
While installing the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E isn’t too hard, you’ll need an electrician to connect the wires – unless you know how already.
We test many space heaters. Certain units are made for overall heating abilities. Other devices only have a couple of abilities. The Stiebel Eltron CK 15E is in the latter camp.
If you’re looking for a heater to warm large rooms, go elsewhere. If you want a portable device, this isn’t for you. If you’re looking to save space and heat a small room with something that attaches to the wall, then the Stiebel Eltron CK 15E is a perfect option.
