TLC Baseboard Heating Systems in Albuquerque & Santa Fe
If you have baseboard heaters throughout your home, you likely have a hot water baseboard system. Which means that the water is heated from a boiler and circulated throughout the system in your home. If you only have a few baseboard heaters in certain rooms you could have an electric baseboard heating system.
How Baseboard Heaters Work
Whether you have hot water or electric baseboard heaters both types of systems are considered radiant heat systems and warm the room by convection. Meaning they are typically installed underneath windows and draw up the cold air near the floor, warming it up and releasing it back in the room. This cycle continues until the room reaches the desired temperature then the heater shuts off.
Why Install a Baseboard Heating System?
TLC can add electric baseboard heaters to provide a little extra warmth to a colder room. Usually they are installed on the coldest wall of a room in a home or business as a supplemental heating source for a room or bathroom. They are also a good option for a small room addition or expansion that needs additional heating because there is no ductwork needed or larger furnace to accommodate the added space.
