Electric baseboard space heaters
are similar to hot water baseboard heating, but are individually controlled using integral or wall-mounted thermostats. Convection heating moves warmed air into the room. Self-contained they are ideal for providing heat when rooms are added, or to provide supplemental heat. This saves money compared to extending household heating systems. Guest rooms and spare bathrooms are ideal candidates for these compact, efficient electric heaters.
Clean, quiet, economical, attractively designed electric baseboard heaters are unobtrusive, taking up virtually no floor space. Like ceramic
and infrared electrical heaters
, baseboard space heaters are quick to respond to warm bathrooms, guest rooms, dressing rooms, nurseries, bedrooms and other areas such as Florida rooms and sun rooms to extend the outdoor season.
Because they are economical to buy and install, electric baseboard heaters
are frequently used as a permanent source of heat for room additions or new construction.
Advanced models of electric baseboard heaters operate on the hydronic principle. Heating elements are completely submerged in a heat transfer fluid and totally sealed in tubes that span the length of the heater. Like conventional hot water baseboard heating systems, the heat transfer fluid retains heat after the thermostat clicks off, and residual warmth continues until the liquid cools. Portable units transfer heat to fins that radiate warmed air.
Permanently installed baseboard space heaters must be professional wired into the household grid and are controlled from wall-mounted thermostats. Portable units connect to standard 110-120-volt receptacles that must be GFI rated if in a bathroom near a water source. These models are controlled by a built in thermostat and automatically turn off if they are tipped.
