Brought new tv for bedroom freeview inc..set up


If you have got a good aerial, the high gain type- see image, it should run all the TV's you say. Make certain you have decent cable coming off the aerial (the stuff they use for satalite dishes). Then buy some high quality splitters, to feed the TV's. Don't split the cable outdoors!

The Heater warms the bedroom areas of the house more efficiently than the living area


Bedrooms are almost always smaller than living rooms and they usually have the same amount of warm air registers. Try adjusting the louvers down in the smaller rooms and opening the living room registers wide open to balance your airflow. Good luck.

Arc fault breaker trips sporadically


Are there any heaters anywhere in the circuit for this breaker? (ie: bathroom fan w/light and heater) If yes, I would suspect and inspect them first. Also,any type breaker will trip more easily if the electrical connection screws on the breaker are not tight enough...check to make sure that's not the case.

Problem wiring 240amp baseboard heaters


12 gauge wire sounds under sized for the application. And 20 amp 240 v breakers might be sufficient if you where wiring the heaters separately. But be sure that your wiring is not romex - because romex is an insulator and is not permitted in conduit. I would suggest that you up size your wire to 10 guage and your breaker to 30 amp as well. Then double check your heater wiring connections to insure that they're wired the same throughout.

the air takes the path of least resistance.What you need is a balance.there should be some dampers in the round pipe of each heat run.restrict the ones going to the livingroom about half way....this will force more air to your bedroom.

Connecting belkin router


Hi!

How far are you away from the router to the bedroom?

What do you mean by "bedroom system"? Is it a wireless computer?

Not enought heat


I have the same heater and it works great in my bedroom (with a door). the room is about 12 x 14. For my living room and dining area I use 2 or 3 oscillating, ceramic, fan forced heaters spaced out.

As you say, logically...since heat rises, the heat comes off the top. Only 3 things that I can think of would make that heater not work: First, a factory defect (it doesn't heat period). Second, if you have it a room that is too large for that size heater. Third, if the room has no doors (such as a living room).

If you have a draft it can work to your advantage. By placing the heater in line with the draft it will actually accelerate the heat exchange process and distribute the heat faster for you.
