Why Hydronic Baseboard Heaters are Better than Electric

Not All Baseboards are Created Equal

Though homeowners think that all baseboard heaters are the same, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, the heater that you have in your home can affect your heating costs and even how well your home heats up. These are the differences between specific types of baseboard heaters and why hydronic baseboard heaters is the most efficient way to heat your home.

More Cost-Efficient

Hydronic baseboard heaters radiate heat heated water and are the most efficient form of heating and costs significantly less than electric. Electric heaters, generate and maintain their temperature through electricity. This causes them to be extremely energy unfriendly and can raise your monthly heating bill by quite large amounts.

Longer Lasting Heat

Water may take a little longer to heat up, but remains heated once the unit turns off, radiating heat until the unit cools down. Hydronic heaters can also maintain the temperature of your home without needing a constant flow of energy to do so.

Non-Complex Installation

Hydronic heaters don’t require a sophisticated installation process, making them an affordable form of heating. It’s for this reason that they’re a good choice for homes that don’t already have a heating system installed yet. Rather than going through the effort of running ductwork through the home, hydronic heaters only need a hot water boiler and piping to work.

At EZ Snap Covers, we know that while your hydronic baseboard heater is the most efficient way to heat your home, it can rust and become ugly. It’s for this reason that we set out to provide you with a high-quality hot water baseboard heater cover to beautify your home.

A Brief History of Home Baseboard Heaters
