Question about Fahrenheat Built-In Baseboard Thermostat Heater

1 Answer

Do the Fahrenheat Hydronic Baseboard heaters work well?

I am thinking of having installed a 90'' inch hydronic BB heater - does the tube that heats the water inside really work well and does this model throw off a lot of heat?  Are there other brands you would reccomend?

    Is this a plug in (electric) hydronic bb heater? if so the wattage will tell you how much heat it puts off.
    A standard 72" electric BB puts out about 1500 watts.

    Another type of better heater might be Comfort Cove radiant heater (a BB heater that mounts on high on wall and "shines" heat down).
    These are hard wired like electric BB heaters and very efficient.

While it could be nothing, it is a good idea to have a heating professional check them once in a while. Sounds a little odd, though, as most electric baseboard heaters have no vents. You will be comforted by the reassurance of having them looked at. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

I installed a 1000 watt four foot long Farenheat F2544 baseboard heater in my outdoor workshop. But it's too small for the space. I calculated that I probably need 2000 watts to heat my space. But I do not...


I could find no electrical code or mechanical code that says you can do that, so I wouldn't do that.
But have you thought of or do you have the overhead space to install a hanging unit heater? They don't require much space(just make sure you install it per manufacturers specifications) and they come in much higher BTU ratings.

CAN I WIRE A 2 WIRE NOMA NON PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT TO A 240 V BASEBOARD HEATER AND HOW. 2 BLACK WIRES ON THE THERMOSTAT. 3600W@240 VOLT


To the best of my knowledge, Noma does not make a high voltage stat (M# would be more helpful). You most likely have a heating only stat that operates on 24VAC. Also, at that wattage, the wires on your thermostat would need to be a minimum of 12ga.
