    As I see you have two choices. Build a closet maybe even if it is a "corner" closet or get an
    cabinet. Places like Lowes have lots of different cabinets to choose from in the shelving dept.

    You have a bad connection somewhere. Remake all the connections in all the heaters. If that

    Use a single power source with two three way switches. Instead of two power sources with two
    single pole switches.

    It's a door bell chime and if it buzzing that means that there is a short in the button circuit
