Signs You Should Replace Your Baseboard Heater Cover

Signs You Should Replace Your Baseboard Heater Cover

If you have old hot water baseboard heaters in your home, chances are they’ve seen better days. During several decades, a hundred harsh winter seasons, and more than a few style changes, this appliance has dealt with it all. Still, this doesn’t mean your hydronic heating system is ready to throw in the towel. In fact, all it may need is a little sprucing up with a new cover. These are the signs you should replace your baseboard heater cover and what they mean for this unit’s overall performance.

Made with Less Resistant Materials

The first thing you might notice about your outdated baseboard heater cover is the material it’s made of. Older baseboard heaters are commonly covered with a thin coat of tan- or brown-colored paints. They’re not very resistant to rust over long periods of time. Wood coverings have their own issues, as they wear just like all woodwork in your house. 

Has Visible Cracks or Other Structural Damage

You should also consider making the switch if you find that your cover is broken. Baseboard heater covers are designed to radiate and distribute heat through ventilation holes along the front and top. This makes it easier for the climate to change in the entire room and reduce the occurrence of cold areas. If your cover is visibly rusted, dented, missing parts, or falling apart entirely, it’s not doing its job.

You’re Tired of the Way It Looks

Another reason you should replace your baseboard heater cover is that it no longer fits with your style or design. As an integral part of your home’s environment, your baseboard heater should blend in with the rest of the surrounding artifacts. Otherwise, it’s an eyesore that you can’t ignore, no matter how hard you might try. Galvanized Steel baseboard heater covers are sleek and stylish, allowing you to quickly cover rusted and ugly components and get back to enjoying your home.
