Why Landlords Should Install Baseboard Heater Covers

Why Landlords Should Install Baseboard Heater Covers

It’s becoming more common to see baseboard heaters installed in rental properties as hot water heat is the most efficient. In fact, their ease of installation and maintenance make them a great investment for landlords. In older properties, a landlord may consider investing in baseboard heater covers if there are missing parts and or they are rusted and ugly.  Just one of the many reasons why landlords should install baseboard heater covers. Learn here about the benefits of doing so.


As a landlord, it’s your legal responsibility to ensure the properties you lease are safe and comfortable for your tenants to live in. Failing to do so can lead to hefty fines and even mandated visits to court. So to ensure you’re taking the best care of your tenants, cut back on the number of risks present in each unit. Baseboard heater covers, in particular, reduce the overall risk of a person cutting or injuring themselves on fin tubes and sharp edges when parts go missing.

Reduced Injury

The additional layer between hot fin tubes and tiny fingers cuts back on the likelihood that someone will accidently cut or injure themselves. This is especially important to tenants with young children or pets, as it ensures that they’re safe living on your property. With effective safety precautions in place, you’ll have happier tenants, a better reputation, and less legal issues.

Upgraded Appearance

Baseboard heater covers also provide landlords with a cost-effective and easy way to upgrade the appearance of their units. Their sleek and modern style make them a perfect complement to any design. So if your properties are in need of renovation, this is a great way to update an outdated heater with the rest of a modernized property.
