Baseboard Heating

How does baseboard heating work?

Baseboard heaters run off of electricity, and do not request duct work. They come in varying lengths in order to generate enough heat for different sized rooms. They are often installed along the lower part of a wall. It is important to not obstruct a baseboard heating unit for fire safety. There are metal conductors within the baseboard heater that become hot as electricity passes through it. These heating elements warm the air around it, but a baseboard heater does not generate any air flow.

Why is baseboard heating important?

Baseboard heat is a great, inexpensive means of heating an area of your home that is without a heat source or has a poor heat source. Baseboard heating units utilize electricity to be powered and do not require duct work. It is often a great heat resource for basements, garages, attics, and additions.

When are baseboard heaters a good idea?

Baseboard heaters are a great heat source solution in spaces that don't have another heat source or the current heat source is not powerful enough to properly warm the area. It is also a great solution when running duct work for central air or piping for when radiant heat is difficult or too expensive.  

How much does baseboard heating cost?

The cost to install baseboard heating is relatively inexpensive compared to other heating systems, but it can vary in price.
