Baseboard Heater Installation

Baseboard and portable heaters are two common electric heaters used for heating indoor spaces. While both types of heaters have their advantages and disadvantages, there are several reasons why baseboard heater installation is considered safer and more reliable than portable heaters. You may be wondering who installs baseboard heaters? It is very important to have a licensed electrician install the unit but more importantly install the correct voltage segment to the heater.

  1. Permanent installation: Baseboard heaters are permanently installed in a fixed location, while portable heaters can be moved around from room to room. This means that baseboard heaters are less likely to be knocked over or accidentally moved, which reduces the risk of fire hazards and burns.
  2. Built-in safety features: Baseboard heaters typically have built-in safety features such as automatic shut-off switches that turn off the heater if it overheats or if there is a malfunction. Portable heaters may also have these safety features, but they are not always as reliable as those found in baseboard heaters.
  3. Consistent heating: Baseboard heaters are designed to provide consistent heating throughout a room, while portable heaters may have hot and cold spots or may struggle to heat larger areas. This means that baseboard heaters can provide more efficient and effective heating, which reduces the need for multiple heaters in a single room.
  4. No cords: Baseboard heaters are hardwired into the electrical system of a building and do not require cords or extension cords to operate. With portable heaters you run the risk of tripping over cords or accidentally damaging them, which can cause electrical shock or fire hazards.
  5. Low maintenance: Baseboard heaters require little to no maintenance, while portable heaters may need regular cleaning and filter replacements to operate safely and effectively.
