OIL FILLED BASEBOARD HEATER

Hi, I have a cold apartment.  Steam radiator heat.  Live in Chicago, it gets cold and I want a "room" heater.  I have a Longhi Oil filled heater, but it only heats space.  I want something to heat a room and was told an oil filled baseboard heater would do it.
What should I look for?  What brands?  prices?  This would be for the livingroom.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: oil baseboard heat v electric baseboard heat.

Two 8 ft baseboards will heat this basement fine. You should eliminate any sources of flooding before you invest in refinished your basement.

SOURCE: WHAT SIZE BREAKER IS NEEDED FOR 240 VOLT ELECTRIC BASEBOARD HEATE

If there is a 15 amp breaker on this circuit now. Then I would assume the the wire to this breaker is only capable of handling that size and NOTHING larger. There are to many variables. You need to know the maximum amp draw rating of the device. The wire size going back to the service entrance (fuse box). You will also need to know the total power draw of the service entrance to determine if the box can handle the total load. Are there any other branches off of this circuit? I suggest that you get advice from an electrician. If you overload the circuit, you may think everything is ok. But you can cause a major problem. I do not think that you want to take the chance of overloading a circuit. This can cause a fire and or death. Have this inspected by a professional. If you insist on doing it yourself.... contact your local building inspector for guidance.

#1 you have to calculate the heatloss of your rooms,that will tell you ur wattage require. Oil filled or not,it's just as dry. As far as ur load to panel breakers, a rule of thumb is approx 3600 watts for 20 amps,using a number 12 wire. But ur wall heaterS should suffice

Oil Filled Radiator Heater Leaking


<p>A very common and increasing popular source of <b>supplemental heat</b> in the last few years has been the <b>oil filled electric radiator. </b> <br /> <p>These <b>radiator heaters</b> are filled with an oil that circulates through the fins of the heater and is heated by <b>electric heating elements</b>. The result is a steady even type of heat that has a lower surface temperature then many <b>space heaters</b>, making them a great way to get <b>supplement heating</b> into a room when you have pets, small children or combustibles near by.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>One of the big questions that comes up with these <b>oil filled heaters</b> is what to do if they start to leak. The answer is that if the<b> oil heater</b> starts to leak then it is no good anymore and needs to be disposed of. These<b> heaters are filled with oil</b> at the factory and then are sealed tightly. Because of this there is no need to ever <b>refill the heater with oil</b> again. The heaters are sealed with the proper oil inside for the <b>best heating efficiency. </b> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>So what this means is that if you have one of these <b>oil filled radiator heaters, </b>you will never have any <b>maintenance</b> or worries about <b>adding oil to the heater</b>. But if there ever is a leak then the heater is also no good and will need to be throw out and replaced. Very few of these <b>oil filled heat units</b> ever leak, but as is always the case there are always some that do.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>A word of caution about heating efficiency. Always remember that when <b>heating with electricity</b>, the <b>laws of physics</b> always apply. <b>For every 1 KW of electric you will only ever get 3415 BTU's of heat.</b><br /> <p>There is no way to get any more or any less than that, so if anyone tries to tell you that their electric heater is more efficient then the next one they are not telling the truth.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br />

Does this thing have a fan? i turned it on its getting warm but im a bit confused on how the heat is to move around!


Hello, I can understand your confusion. This type of heater is a radiator, there is no fan. How it works is by the oil heating inside the unit. You will feel it actually get so hot, that it is uncomfortable to the touch. The air right near the heater will get warm and then it starts to rise. As it rises, more air moves in to take it's place, and then this air rises and the cycle continues as long as the heater is running. This is the same principle as the steam and hot water radiators. I have used these heaters and they really do warm up a room.

Turned on new heater last night, according to instructions. It was on high all night and never got above 56 degrees.


We need a little more information:

When you say 'never got about 56 degrees'--
are you saying the heater never got about 56 degrees?-
or the room it was in, did not get above 56 degrees?

Can you hold your hand on the heater?-- is it hot, or is only lukewarm?

Are the indicator lights on the heater indicating that you have power, and the heater is working? (Or trying to heat the room, at least?)

What other sources of heat do you have for the room-- and how cold is it outside?

Tell us more--

After heater is on for awhile it seems to cause smoke in the room and the bottom of the heater has turned tan.


This is quite common, the oil has seeped out of a cracked seam, this then gets heated up by the heater and smokes, a bit. although probably not too dangerous, i advise you cease using it. There is no real cheap way to repair these leaks, apart from welding the seam again.

Most efficient use of Lakewood oil-filled heater? First month's energy bill was extreme! I was told it was more efficient to run it constantly.


Hi,
These electric heaters and efficiency do not go together at all!!
They are in no way efficient at all!!
Sure they are 100% efficient using the electric provided to them, but hwat is the cost of that electric compared to say gas or fuel oil?
The onlt way they can save you any money is if you live in one small room, heat that and not the rest of the house.
And no it is not more efficient to run it constantly...
If your not using the room you are heating with it turn it off.
Sorry if I seem to be ranting, but as a heating contractor I have seen these sold as "energy savers" many times and it is just a sales pitch and nothing more.
Absolutely NO truth to it whatsoever and they know it.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Electric baseboard heater


this is a tough call but with 2000 watts in each room there should be more than enough heat .the rooms should maintain a average temp of 73 to 78 degrees temp without weatherazation and that is of course there is no drafts coming from any windows or near a front or back door that opens and closes alot . Basiclly you have it covered but definatley get the house winterize/insulated real good.I would keep 1 or 2 space heaters on hand just incase the person in house feels there cold just to cover yourself ,usually it the female complaining its cold if its not warm enough but there have been some males that need that temp to be 80 degrees all the time.good luck but im sure it will be ok!!

Baseboard heaters


measure each room you want to heat. multiply the length x width, this will give you the square footage of the room to be heated, multiply that by 10 and that is the number of watts needed to heat the room using 220/240v baseboards.
