What is a hydronic baseboard?

A hydronic baseboard heater uses a fluid filled heating element instead of metal to radiate heat. The Cadet SoftHeat baseboard heater uses a mineral oil that runs along a copper tubing element while the regular baseboard element is made of steel sheathed calrod. This technique has proven to be the most efficient in generating steady uniform warmth across the room. Unlike standard baseboards, it retains heat better and emits it even after the thermostat turns off.

Do I need a thermostat?

All Cadet electric baseboards require a thermostat to work. You have the option to either pair it with a built-in or a line voltage thermostat. However, for best performance and accurate temperature reading, we recommend that you consider a smart thermostat. At the least, you should install a digital programmable thermostat.
