Question about Fahrenheat Electric Convector Baseboard Heater, 240 Volt
I have an older apartment building (built 1910) that I remodeled, and installed 8 ft baseboard heaters in each room (13'x13') 2000 watts each at 240v.
I am concerned about this winter. since it gets very cold here (9 degrees last winter) I am wondering if this will be enough to heat these rooms??
I have signed up for weatherization, but am still waiting on that. once weatherization happens I am confident that 2000 watts per room will be enough, but until then..... do I need to have some extra space heaters on hand to cover the coldest of days??
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!!

For space heaters 'THE MOST IMPORTANT' factor aside from wattage or power of heater is where you locate it. Putting in a corner or under a table is NOT the most efficient. A space heater, electric heater or any heater should be put under a window. It will make a world of difference as the heated air rises and heats the cold air near the window and is forced away from the cold window and into the room gradually.
