We will make sure your heater is properly installed so that you can enjoy years of worry-free performance.
A baseboard heater operates quietly at the base of a wall, circulating air through means of convection to produce heat. They are excellent for room additions and areas of your home that are frequently used so you don’t have to waste energy heating portions of your home that you rarely visit. This type of heater operates silently because there is no fan. Installing this type of appliance typically requires some sort of wiring work, so you should leave this type of job to a professional.
Some of the benefits of having an electric baseboard heater in your home include:
They are easy to maintain – You basically only need to vacuum your baseboard heater on a regular basis to minimize the build up of dust. While these are sturdy appliances that rarely need repairs, you should still call a technician should a problem arise.
They keep a low profile – An electric baseboard heater takes up very little room. The design of this appliance makes it barely noticeable, and, as stated before, the lack of a fan means it operates silently.
They help you save energy – If you spend most of your time in one room during the day, a baseboard heater will keep you warm without you having to waste money heating other areas of your home. The typical baseboard heater can warm an area of about 150 square feet while only using 1,500 watts of energy. If you’re in a larger room most of the time, you can still heat that space economically and efficiently by using multiple units.
Baseboard heaters are generally safe, but you still want to make sure you’re careful when you, your children or your pets are around them. Baseboard heater covers will protect you and your loved ones from the hottest tubes, and those covers are standard in most models. This type of heater is typically mounted on a wall, but freestanding models have built-in safety features, such as a shut-off feature if the unit tips over.
As long as you make sure your baseboard heater is properly installed, has safety covers, is not located below any electrical outlets, is not near any drapes and doesn’t touch the floor, you can be assured of safe operation.
