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.

Underfloor Radiant Heating for Your New Sunroom

You want to add a brand new sunroom onto your existing house. The problem is that you are not sure how to heat it. Electric heating with baseboard heaters will spoil the look that you want from your new room. Hot water baseboard is going to present all types of problems getting hooked in to the existing system and piping it. And, if you have hot air heating system then you will have the problem of getting ductwork to the room. There is another way to heat this room easily and efficiently.

Radiant heating has been one of the most comfortable and efficient ways for heating for many years. The problem has been in the past to find a good heating source for small radiant floors that will be affordable, effective and efficient.

This problem has been solved now, with the availability of small new electric combination heater- circulator units. These units use small electric heating elements together with a small circulator pump to give you a all in one heating source and circulator pump.

Now you just have to lay your tubing in the floor of the room you are adding on to your house. Then you run that tubing into your existing basement or other room in your house. The tubing and the electric are attached to the heating unit. Then, wire a thermostat to the unit, and you are now ready to make heat. This really makes heating a new addition room very inexpensive and easy to do.

The greatest thing about using this type of heating system is that most average do-it-yourself types can do this. All that is needed is a basic knowledge of plumbing and electric.
If you are thinking of building that little add-on and are worried about how you will heat it, think about using radiant floor heat and a small electric heater-circulator to do your project.

If i have a room 16x24 how big of a electric baseboard heater do

It is not the size of the room that is important it is the heat loss of said room. If it is a inside room, with no outside walls, it will take less btu's to heat and maintain comfort levels, where as if it is a room with floor to ceiling windows, you will obviously need more btu input. Hope this helps.

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 baseboard heaters

measure the room, then multiply the length by the width to get the square feet you want to heat. multiply this by 10 and that is the watts you need to heat the room assuming you are using standard 220/240v baseboards.

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.
