How Do Baseboard Heaters Work?

While not as popular as they used to be, baseboard heaters are powerful and versatile heating solutions for many homes. They can either be the main heat source or a supplemental addition for a single room. If you have them in your home, you’re likely dealing with hydronic or electric baseboard heaters:

  • Hydronic: These systems are commonly used to heat entire homes and utilize closed-circuit piping to move hot water to each room. They either hook up to your home’s boiler or utilize their own water supply and heat water using electricity.
  • Electric: These systems plug into a nearby outlet or connect to a home’s electrical system. They use convection to warm up cold air found near the floor. They are often easy to install and work quickly.

Common Problems With Baseboard Heaters

Baseboard heating systems typically operate efficiently for 15 to 20 years, but you can help extend the life span of your system and reduce the likelihood of problems with routine maintenance.

Some of the most common issues baseboard heaters can experience include:

  • Fluctuating temperatures: Inconsistent temperatures in your home is a telltale sign that something is wrong with your baseboard heat, often caused by a faulty or inaccurate thermostat.
  • Loud noises: While some humming or clicking noises are normal signs of a working baseboard heater, loud banging sounds could indicate a serious complication.
  • Bad smells: Over time, dust, debris and even lubricant can build up in your electric system’s vents, which can burn and create offputting, fuel-like odors.
  • Regular circuit breaker trips: A blown fuse or loose wiring can cause electric baseboard heaters to trip the nearby circuit.
  • No baseboard heat: Hydronic systems can experience leaks or clogs, causing them to not heat up despite the availability of hot water.

”The staff was courteous and professional at all times. They cleaned up after themselves. They even provided a fan for me while they were doing the install since my AC was out and it was a hot day.”
