Baseboard heaters can be found in many homes and apartments today. While baseboards heaters took over from radiators years ago, and we now often find HVAC systems in homes, a great number of people still choose to use baseboards as their primary heating source.
Electric baseboard heat is a reliable heating option for new additions, renovated rooms and hard-to-heat spaces. If your existing space needs new heat and you don’t want to go through the trouble of installing ductwork in tight spaces, or risk damages the walls or ceilings, baseboard heaters are the answer. Installing a few baseboard heaters in select locations will significantly increase your comfort level without the need for major renovations.
Some other things to consider about baseboard heaters:
They can be installed as single units or used to expand an existing system.
Can be controlled individually or used to create heating zones.
Are attached to the lower wall or baseboard so there’s no need for major renovations.
Are self-contained so there’s no need for a new or replacement furnace.
Are powered by electricity, so additional fuel sources such as gas, propane or heating fuel aren’t necessary.
Making changes and choosing the right heating system isn’t an easy decision. For help evaluating the spaces that require heating, call the HVAC Fairfax VA team at Eastern Tech for assistance.
