Is this heater safe for birds
I will be getting some finches in a few weeks and will be quarantining them in a room that has an in-wall heater. That is the only room I can use. Other option is the hallway which MIGHT work, but we are currently remodeling and repainting so I do not want any paint fumes to harm the birds.

So this heater is in the room in the wall and I know we need to be careful with heaters, so I am wondering if someone can help me figure out if this is safe.

Some space heaters contain components coated with polymers containing polytetrafluroethylene (PTFE),

PTFE is the same element in nonstick cookware that (when overheated) emits fumes deadly to birds.

I highly recommend you contact the manufacturer directly about possible PTFE coatings before purchasing the heater.

The heater is already installed. It is not a space heater, it is a wall heater, that is why I am wondering on if it is safe, since it is different.

This isnt a room I ever planned on having birds in, but it turns out it is the best room for quarantine, so I would like to find out if it is safe.

Do wall heaters have the same risks as space heaters?

The best answer is still to check with the manufacturer.

Only the manufacturer of the product can tell you what was used in the product assembly.
