Looking to Install a Heating and Cooling Unit? 4 Reasons to Consider Baseboard Heating

Posted on

As a homeowner, you want to have a living space that offers you the utmost comfort. Naturally, therefore, you'll have to find ways to keep yourself warm during winter. An effective way to maintain warm indoor temperatures is by investing in a baseboard heater. These heaters can either sit on the floor or a few inches above it. In addition to being affordable, baseboard heaters offer other benefits, as highlighted below.

1. Offers the Ideal Solution for a Freezing Room 

Sometimes, a house can have rooms that never seem to get warm, such as the garage or basement. That's because it is easy for the cold air to get into these rooms but not escape. In such areas, baseboard heaters are ideal because they create conventional heat that spreads evenly and efficiently across the room. That way, you don't need to install a highly priced heating unit to maintain comfortable temperatures in every room.

2. Runs Without Producing Noise

Have you ever lived in a house with an electric heat pump? If yes, you understand how annoying the noise can be when your machine is on. The noise is even louder when the blower is not working efficiently. Sometimes these sounds may make it hard to hold a conversation or even sleep. However, baseboard heating works quietly, and you may not know whether it is on or off unless you check it.

3. Provides an Easy-Plug Solution

Baseboard heaters also offer a portable option that perfectly works when you need heat in a specific area. They have a plug that connects easily to electrical outlets where needed. As such, they are suitable for travelling or rental apartments, as you can unplug them easily and carry them when moving to a different location. 

4. Creates a Simple Zone-Heating Solution

Zone heating is beneficial as it allows you to set different temperatures in various rooms in the house. Today, most homes use the digital feature found in modern HVAC systems to designate and pre-set varying temperatures for each section, depending on your needs. 

You can quickly and conveniently do that by investing in an electric baseboard heater, where every single baseboard unit has an independent thermostat. So, for instance, if your child will be in school during winter, the baseboard heater in their room can remain off until they are back. 

You can enjoy the benefits above by investing in a quality baseboard heating unit. However, it is best to get guidance from professional heating and cooling contractors to ensure you get and install the ideal baseboard heater for your house. The experts will analyse your house conditions and your heating needs before recommending the ideal baseboard heating unit.
