Signs You Need To Replace Your Baseboard Heater Covers

Just like everything else in life, your baseboard heater is subject to aging. During the course of years, maybe even decades, it can start showing signs of damage or rust. But this doesn’t mean you need to give up on your heater. All it needs is a quick sprucing up, and a brand-new cover should do the trick. Keep on reading to discover some telltale signs you need to replace your baseboard heater covers.

Your Heater Is Built with Less-Damage–Resistant Materials

Often covered with a thin layer of tan-colored paint, older and more outdated models might clash with your home’s modern interior—and on top of that, they’re less resistant to rust and other damage. If you have a cover made from wood, you might even notice the woodwork wearing down.

There’s Visible Damage or Rust

Another sign you need to replace your baseboard heater covers is if they’re falling apart. If you’re holding up your old cover with duct tape or cardboard, it’s time for a change. A cover that’s riddled with cracks and dents or that has loose, broken, or missing parts isn’t as efficient as it could be. Covers are designed to radiate heat through ventilation holes along the front and top. If these holes are disfigured, it can affect the way heated air is distributed throughout your home.

Rust isn’t any good, either. As we said, older models are known for rusting, but newer, more durable materials such as galvanized steel can last decades before showing visible signs of rust.

You’re Tired of Disguising It

If your previous cover doesn’t fit with your interior design, then upgrading it is a smart choice. A baseboard heater should add style to your home, not take it away. You shouldn’t have to cover up your baseboard heater with furniture, curtains, or other clever shielding techniques. By picking out a replacement baseboard heater cover made from sleek, modern steel or opting for a custom-made design, you can make your home look great again.

If your old, outdated baseboard covers need a bit of sprucing up, EZSnap™ Covers can help. Come check out our selection of sturdy galvanized steel covers or custom-made replacement baseboard heater covers.
