Baseboard heaters can theoritically sit right on the floor, but are usually installed 1-3" off the floor to allow cleaning under them.

Why is my honeywell 8320r1003 short cycling for hot water heat.I have heat set at 65 degress.cycling 2min,3min,the most is 8min.


Hi Bill, after closing your thermostat, is this correct the situation?
And how far is your thermostat from your baseboard heater, if the baseboard is underneath the stat, you should move the stat elsewhere. Hope this help you find the problem.

We have a NELCO baseboard electrical heater, circa 1970s. We wish to remove it temporarily from the wall to permit new flooring installation under the heater. How are they attached to the wall?


It is attached with 2-screws or 2-nails. Depending on who installed it. I970's, I'm betting on 2-nails.
If you remove the cover, you will see where the nails are located on the inside back wall of the heater compartment and are attached to the baseboard. Be sure to turn the circuit breaker for the heater to the OFF position, be for attempting to unwire and move the heater. The circuit breaker should remain OFF until the heater is reinstalled.

I am putting baseboard hot water heat in an older house that hase outlets in the way, is it alright to mount the baseboard above outlets . It would be about 12 inches.


Not sure that would pass code. But, you may want to check with the local building inspections dept in your area, before doing it. The other down side will be, the heat will start 12" of the floor rather than floor level. As you are aware, heat rises, so that would mean the lower 12" to the floor is going to remain cold. Want feel very good on bare feet that just jumped out of bed.

New rad installation


Baseboard such as Slant-fin is made with a bracket that will allow you to run a 3/4" dia copper pipe back over the top of the finned area as a return pipe giving you a supply and a return on the same side. Both the finned pipe and the housing can be cut to any length and come in a 3' section from the factory.

Disconnect baseboard heater


After confirming that the heater circuit is de-energized, simply go to whatever heater that you want to disconnect, open the junction box, remove the heater wires and cap them off. Twist the remaining circuit wires together, wire nut, replace the juction box cover and on to the next one. There are ways to install a thermostat at each heater too.

How far off the floor do i install hot water baseboard heaters


When you install the baseboard heater make sure the bottom part which is the all thing must sit over the floor and touch the tiles or carpet and use 2 or 3 wood screw against the wall. That is it and do not put any kind of paper or cotton or material things above the cover. Beside that you are ok and it is not like an electric wall heater.

Electric Hydronic Baseboard Heater Under Electrical Recepticle


Hello,
I believe you interpretation of the code is a bit skewed in that the fundamental concern is to not route power cords over a heat source which might cause the insulation on that wire to exceed its rated operating temp and fail. The heaters themselves have shrowds over them so there are no exposed surfaces hot enough to melt wire insulation and when you think about it ..2000 watts disipated over a long baseboard section is not that hot. If I were you, I would go ahead and install them and not worry about the warning.. The warning also removes any liability from the heater manufacturer in the event something happens.. Common sense would dictate that you wouldn't intentionally drape power cords all over the heaters... Just use common sense and not worry about it..
Regards,
Rick
