Thermostat should a thermostat be exposed to the entire area to be heated? there is a pocket door separating the bedroom area from the living area, and, the thermostat controls the heat to all. if I close the pocket door, will it effect the living area to be heated? thank you !

Its possible. you can check into getting a sensor installed. Its the same as a thermostat except there is no way to adjust it. Grocery stores, for example, use this set up. The thermostats are mounted in the office where the employees can control them, and there are sensors in the store itself.

Our f2546 baseboard heater doesnt want to start, why?

Did it used to work before? If so, then test to see if you have power in the heater. Do the following:
1. Turn off the circuit breaker that feeds the heater.
2. Open the panel of the heater to expose the incoming wires that feed the heater.
3, Turn on the circuit breaker, and check to see if you have power using a voltage tester.
If you have power at the heater, and the thermostat is set on high, but you still don't have heat, replace the entire heater. The problem could be something little (like a defective thermostat), but why take a chance. Electrical malfunctions could cause fires.

Hi i havent used my radiator for 2 years is it ok to use now in my 8 month olds bedroom? also bit of a smell coming from it cant remember if i had that before or not is this normal for these radiator?

I would think it would be fine in your childs bedroom. First i would give it a good cleaning, brush it off,vacumn of blow out with compressed air. Also I would use your heater for a day or two in open area such as living room before I would trust it. I would guess that the smell you are getting is dust and hair,lint etc. burning off. But of course we don't want to take chances with our children. My son and daughter in-law used a holmes unit in my grandsons bedroom for the last four years and have had no problems. Hope this helps. Thanks

Not enough heat

Take an Amp draw on all heaters and compare. If within 5%, they are working fine but you may have more open area downstairs than up.

The air blows through the heating ducts

The ducts should be inspected for leakage and repaired/sealed as necessary. Also, with any gas burning products in your house, you should be sure to install a Carbon Monoxide Detector in your main living area as well as in your bedroom.

Good Luck & Hope this helps!

The Heater warms the bedroom areas of the house more efficiently than the living area

Bedrooms are almost always smaller than living rooms and they usually have the same amount of warm air registers. Try adjusting the louvers down in the smaller rooms and opening the living room registers wide open to balance your airflow. Good luck.

How do you shut down

the pilot light always stays on, its designed to allow your heater to turn on by itself without you needing to light a match every time. if the pilot light is burning you have nothing to worry about. its when the pilot light goes out that a small amount of gas leaks into the room. and by small i mean smaller than a hand held lighter... if you still want to shut the entire thing down you could turn off the gas line feeding the heater or possibly the whole house, otherwise the pilot light will stay on. as far as the actual heater turning off, thats probably controlled by some sort of thermostat somewhere. if you set the temp to very cold it should stay off. if that doesn't work then you may need a new thermostat.

Electrical burning smell in house

Mhenn, It is my guess that the 'electrical burning' smell is from your heating system. Since there is no smoke and the walls are not warm.... then there is no real problem. The smell maybe just dust has collected in the duct work that is burning off the central heating systems electrical heat strips. If you have electrical heat strips then that may be the problem. If you have a central gas heat system, it may be the same type problem. Hope this helps you. Henry

Not enought heat

I have the same heater and it works great in my bedroom (with a door). the room is about 12 x 14. For my living room and dining area I use 2 or 3 oscillating, ceramic, fan forced heaters spaced out.

As you say, logically...since heat rises, the heat comes off the top. Only 3 things that I can think of would make that heater not work: First, a factory defect (it doesn't heat period). Second, if you have it a room that is too large for that size heater. Third, if the room has no doors (such as a living room).

If you have a draft it can work to your advantage. By placing the heater in line with the draft it will actually accelerate the heat exchange process and distribute the heat faster for you.
