The baseboard options are still linked to the boiler to put out heat and would be installed around the perimeter of the room.
The house we purchased has a boiler installed in the basement that handles heating. In our local area, the cold weather lingers for more than half the year. For the majority of the winter, the temperature is well below zero. It’s not unusual for it to drop down to twenty below zero, and the wind chill makes it feel even colder. A powerful heater is a necessity. We’ve been extremely pleased with the performance of the boiler. It requires only annual maintenance, operates silently and provides a very consistent, gentle and efficient heating. However, the boiler is currently linked to radiators located in each of the rooms. While the radiators provide a tremendous amount of heat, keep our energy bills reasonable and allow for zoned control, I’m not happy with them. They take up quite a bit of space and restrict the arrangement of furniture. Because they are super old, they are rather ugly and not overly safe. The ancient radiators heat up to the point where they are dangerous to the touch. I’m always worried about the kids or the dog getting burned. I’ve been doing some research into baseboard heating. The baseboard options are still linked to the boiler to put out heat and would be installed around the perimeter of the room. Instead of heat coming from a single point, it would be supplied from all sides of the room. They are very streamlined and unobtrusive and don’t become hot to the touch. Since they have no moving parts, there’s nothing to go wrong and require repair.
