WHAT ARE THEY?
Baseboard heaters are the next best thing when it is not practical to extend the existing heating system. They are zonal heaters located in each room controlled by a thermostat. The size of the baseboard heater depends on the size of the room you are wanting to heat.
When you contact Wieser Electric one of our licensed electrical experts will review your home and the rooms you want to heat to best determine what size heaters and circuits you will need for a smooth installation and easy fix to your heating system.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
Baseboard heaters contain electric heating elements encased in metal pipes that go from one end of the enclosure to the other. As air within the heater is warmed, it rises into the room, and cooler air is drawn into the bottom of the heater. Since heat rises the lower the baseboard heaters can be installed the better. Baseboard heaters should only be installed on perimeter walls because that is where the greatest heat loss occurs.
When it comes time to installing your baseboard heater it is vital that you contact a licensed electrical contractor, like those at Wieser Electric. There are many protocols that need to be followed when installing baseboard to prevent damage in the future.
