How to set heat for baseboard heat


They use a 120v thermostat you should be able to buy one wherever you bought the baseboard heaters. Be aware those heaters costs a lot of money to run and dry out your house like a desert buy a few room humidifiers when you get the thermostat. Make sure you use the correct size wiring to the baseboard heaters and the Tstat if you undersize the wires for the breakers involved you'll more than likely cause a electrical fire.

My electric baseboard heaters make a pinging sound which drives me nuts when I am trying to sleep! Any suggestions other than changing the unit? Thanks


Electric baseboard heaters heat by radiant heat. This mean the heater is heating the metal of the heater first which causes expansion of the metal. This will cause popping metal sounds becouse it is heating up. When it kicks off, by the thermostat, it starts to cool which causes contraction of metal. This will also cause noise. Most all base board heaters I have installed and worked on does this. Sorry there is little to nothing you can do. :)

I have a electric baseboard heater and when I turn the thermostat up, it heats for awhile and then the heater stops throwing heat but never reaches themperature. Changed thermostat and still the same...


you either have an overheat switch opening up prematurely or a bad connection that faults when it gets hot. Check all connections with the power off and try jumping out the safety switch to see if the heater stays on.

Electric baseboard heat not getting hot


Is your fuse box and main power source large enough to handle the full load if all are turned on at the same time? Are you uses two pole breakers? you might only be feeding with 110 volt. This would prevent them from getting very hot.

Electric hydronic liquid-filled baseboard heaters


The same comparisons with other forms of electric heat (i.e., radiant, electric strip baseboard, etc.) are the same. The difference is cycle time - the liquid-filled electric heaters turn on and off less frequently than strip-type to maintain thermostat temperatures. This also means that the unit's temperature will swing more widely than the desired average thermostat setting (the liquid's temperature will signal the thermostat to turn off power, but the temperature will continue to climb; similarly the liquid will signal the thermostat that it is cool enough to engage power but the liquid will continue to cool after power is engaged - similar temp swings with hygronic heating systems). Some say that the liquid-filled units are safer, but the manufacturer's installation guidance is usually the same between strip and liquid-filled so both pose an equal safety hazard.
