Can an electrical panel heater with plug be hardwired?

I wonder if it is possible to buy an electrical panel heater that is supplied with a plug and to then remove the plug and hardwire it instead and to put the wire in the wall to hide it. Is that possible or should that not be done?

Yes, an electrical panel heater with a plug can be hardwired. However, this should be done by a qualified electrician to ensure it complies with electrical safety regulations. Removing the plug and hardwiring the heater involves connecting it directly to a fused spur, which provides a safer and more permanent installation. The wire can be concealed within the wall, but proper insulation and conduit use are essential to prevent any potential hazards. Always consult with a professional to ensure the installation is done correctly and safely.

Yes. However, if cutting the plug top off an appliance, it may invalid the warranty.
Also, the appliance would need to be connected to a FCU (fused connection unit).
