For many homeowners, keeping themselves and their family warm during the cold winter months is a priority. Relying on a central heating system will work when it comes to works at keeping your home warm, but it can also be expensive and very inefficient.
We’ve previously discussed the benefits of implementing a supplemental heating strategy, and there are many different types of heaters that can help you do this. Today, however, we’re going to discuss the benefits of baseboard heaters, how they work and why you should consider using one to keep you and your family warm.
What is a Baseboard Heater?
Baseboard heaters are highly efficient heaters that sit directly on the floor or a few inches above the floor. Typically, this type of heater is either convection or hydronic-powered. All floor and baseboard heaters must be used with a thermostat to control the overall temperature and usage. If you don’t feel comfortable installing it yourself, then it would be wise to call a professional electrician to ensure that you get the maximum benefits for your home.
Baseboard heaters are designed to envelop the room in warmth without using up a lot of electricity. This allows you to keep the central heating system turned down low during those colder evenings, and turn on your floor heater for more energy-efficient warmth.
