What are baseboard heaters?

Electric baseboard heating systems, also known as baseboard heaters or baseboard wall heaters, are a common choice for electric resistance heating. However, many individuals have not fully understood how their home’s heating system works, particularly the operation of these baseboard heaters. So, before you can understand the pros and cons of baseboard heating, take a few minutes to ask: what is baseboard heating and how does it work?

What are electric baseboard heaters?

Electric baseboard wall heaters provide an effective and affordable solution for zoned and supplemental heating. Our selection features wide electrical heating elements with heated metal fins. They are installed near floor level, often over the baseboard trim, utilizing convection or hydronic processes for reliable warmth.

What are convection heaters?

A convection heater is a type of heater that utilizes convection to transfer heat via the movement of liquid or gas. A convection heater works much like a convection oven and differs from radiant or conduction heating, as it relies on the movement of air. In the context of central heating, it functions by warming a room from the top down. It relies on the properties of air to rise when it is warm and fall when it cools.

Discover our convection heaters that utilize air movement for top-down warming, providing efficient and personalized comfort in every room.

What are hydronic heaters?

Rather than heating and blowing hot air through your home, a hydronic heating system heats the liquid in its system, distributes it through tubes, and radiates the heat. Hydronic heating systems, or radiant heating, can be installed under floors or using baseboard hydronic heaters or radiators to distribute heat evenly. Opt for our hydronic heaters, distributing liquid warmth through floors or radiators for an evenly heated living space.

What is forced-air heating technology?

Forced air heating is an HVAC system used for space heating. These durable devices efficiently circulate air within your space, reducing dependence on fans, blowers, or ducts.

Tapping into natural gas, propane, or electricity, our current selection of forced air heating systems uses diverse power sources for efficient heat generation, seamlessly distributing warmth through ductwork with the assistance of fans or blowers, making these systems exceptional candidates for your forced air heating needs.

What are the advantages of having baseboard heaters?

Currently, our selection of baseboard heaters are popular for good reasons. Efficient, cost-effective, and discreet, baseboard heaters offer a versatile solution for heating individual spaces with the added benefits of quiet operation and simple installation.

  • Quiet Operation:These heaters operate silently, creating a comfortable environment without noise disruptions.
  • Simple Installation: Baseboard heaters are generally easy to install, making them a convenient heating option for various settings.
  • Space Efficiency: As they are typically mounted along the baseboards, these heaters don't take up valuable floor space.
  • No Ductwork Required: Baseboard heaters operate without the need for ductwork, reducing installation complexity and costs.
  • Energy Efficiency: Many baseboard heaters are equipped with thermostats, allowing for precise temperature control and efficient energy use.
  • Cost-Effective: The initial cost of baseboard heaters is often lower compared to other heating systems, making them an economical choice for heating specific areas.

What is Single Phase vs. Three Phase Power:

  • Single Phase Electrical Power: A simple two-wire alternating current (AC) power circuit commonly used in households and residential areas.
  • Three Phase Electrical Power: Boost your commercial building's electrical capacity with Three Phase—an advanced three-wire AC system. Enjoy increased power density and flexibility, delivering 1.7 times more power than a single-phase setup.

How do you install a baseboard heater?


For your safety and the optimal performance of your baseboard heater, we highly advise hiring a licensed electrician for installation. Electrical work poses potential risks, and improper installation may lead to safety hazards and damage. If you lack the expertise, seeking professional assistance is crucial to ensure a secure and effective setup.

To install a baseboard heater, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  • Choose a Suitable Heater: Begin by selecting a baseboard heater that suits your space and heating requirements.
  • Determine Placement: Identify the optimal location for the baseboard heater. Consider factors such as room size, insulation, and existing heating sources.
  • Install the Heater: Place the baseboard heater in the chosen location, ensuring it is level and securely positioned against the wall.
  • Mount the Heater: Use a drill and screws to mount the baseboard heater securely to the wall. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper installation.
  • Install the Thermostat: Choose a convenient spot for the thermostat to ensure efficient temperature control. Install the thermostat according to the manufacturer's guidelines.
  • Run Cables Through the Wall: Use a drill and other appropriate tools to run the necessary cables through the wall, connecting the thermostat to the baseboard heater.
  • Connect Wiring: Connect the wiring of the baseboard heater, following the provided guidelines and ensuring all connections are secure.
  • Test Functionality: Before finalizing the installation, test the baseboard heater to ensure it functions correctly. Check for proper heating performance and verify that the thermostat controls are effective.

Follow the steps for a general guide, but always prioritize professional assistance for a secure and compliant setup.
