Let Your Baseboards Breathe

To get the most out of your electric baseboard heater, it is important to allow for sufficient airflow. Electric baseboard heaters convert cool air pulled in from the bottom into heated air released out of the top of the heater. Anything blocking the flow of air into the heater will impede the heating process and decrease energy efficiency. Therefore, furniture should not be positioned up against the heaters and thick carpet or rugs should be kept clear of the heater space. Also, heater coils should be dusted regularly, as accumulation will reduce both heat production and the lifespan of the heater.
