Electric Baseboard Heater Installation and Repair


An electric baseboard heater is a great way to conveniently and inexpensively heat portions of your home. At Raynor Services, we can install your unit correctly so you can enjoy it for years of hassle-free operation. Electric heaters work when a current flows through the electric baseboard’s heating element. Within the baseboard, the air is warmed by a series of metal fins that have been heated through electricity. Because electric heaters don’t have fans, the warm air rises from the baseboard, and the heat naturally spreads throughout the room. Electric baseboard heater installation usually takes place on perimeter walls beneath windows, which promotes convection heat.

Electric Baseboard Heater Advantages in Southern New Jersey

Baseboard heaters are great for the areas of your home that you use the most. They use convection to produce heat, and then circulate that heat through the air. You don’t have to worry about wasting money and energy heating the parts of your home where you rarely stay. There is no fan involved, so an electric baseboard heater operates quietly. You’ll need a professional to install it because some wiring work will be needed.

Benefits of an electric baseboard heater include:

Ease of maintenance – The only thing you’ll probably need to do is to vacuum your unit regularly to keep dust from building up. You should call a professional if you have a problem, but repairs are rare.

Energy savings – Usually, a baseboard heater will use only about 1,500 watts of energy and warm an area of about 150 square feet. If you’re heating in a larger room, you can warm it efficiently by using two units.

A small profile – Electric baseboard heaters are barely noticeable and take up very little room.

Quiet operation – Electric baseboard heaters do not use forced air and have no moving parts like fans. That means they operate silently. 

Electric Baseboard Heater Safety in Southern New Jersey

Electric baseboard heaters are safe, but you’ll want to keep an eye on any pets or children when they get near them. These models come with covers that protect you from the hottest tubes, but you’ll still want to ensure yours are not near any drapes or below any electrical outlets. Most models mount on a wall, but some are freestanding. Call Raynor Services today if you would like more information or if you need us to install your new electric baseboard heater.
