Electric Baseboard Heater Advantages
A baseboard heater operates quietly at the base of a wall, circulating air through means of convection to produce heat. They are excellent for room additions and areas of your home that are frequently used so you don’t have to waste energy heating portions of your home that you rarely visit. This type of heater operates silently because there is no fan. Installing this type of appliance typically requires some sort of wiring work, so you should leave this type of job to a professional.
So what exactly does a baseboard heater bring to the table in terms of benefits? What makes them a good call for home or home addition heating? These systems can do quite a lot, including:
- Plenty of warmth. With a flexible BTU range available, baseboard heaters can be fitted and installed to warm rooms of various sizes. This makes them perfect for heating single rooms and outbuildings.
- Efficient heating. Many homeowners loathe using a whole-home heating system because they don’t really use their whole home all that much. If that’s you, then a baseboard heater is ideal! With these systems installed in key rooms throughout the home, you can keep the heat and the energy spent where you want it.
- Quiet operation. Many space heaters and wall units make use of fans and other loud systems, but baseboard units heat via convection, meaning they don’t need any noisy components.
- Easy maintenance. Just a quick wipe down or vacuum out is all a baseboard needs. No filter changes, no annual tune-ups.
Electric Baseboard Heater Safety
Baseboard heaters are generally safe, but you still want to make sure you’re careful when you, your children, or your pets are around them. Baseboard heater covers will protect you and your loved ones from the hottest tubes, and those covers are standard in most models. This type of heater is typically mounted on a wall, but freestanding models have built-in safety features, such as a shut-off feature if the unit tips over.
As long as you make sure your baseboard heater is properly installed, has safety covers, is not located below any electrical outlets, is not near any drapes and doesn’t touch the floor, you can be assured of safe operation.

Electric Baseboard Heaters
“I have only had great experiences with Randy’s electric. They are honest and professional. They sit down with you before work is done and discuss options and price it out and there have never been any surprises after the fact. Chris has come to the house for two different jobs and he is very professional and does a great job. Good people and great service.”
“Randy's Electric is the best at communication! I scheduled some work and they were able to come out sooner than expected. Nick is the electrician who promptly arrived. He was very helpful advising us regarding the safe and more secure installation of our outdoor lighting. He not only did a great job, he was friendly and professional. Josh also came out later and he, too, was very helpful and professional. We really appreciate everything they did for us. We are so glad we called them!”
“We have asked Randy's Electric to do work before and we very happy with the results, so when we needed new bathroom fans installed and had some other electrical mysteries going on in the house, we called Randy's again. We were happy to see the same electrician arrive, Richard, as before. Richard again did a great job, answered all questions, took his time with us, and even installed a new GFI for us because the current one was tripping all the time. We feel we've found the electrician we will always call. Professional, called ahead, received text reminders of the appointment and most importantly, does great work and provides sound advice. When I needed to call the office before the appointment with a question, the nicest lady answered and my question resolved. All around a superior company.”
