Portable Baseboard Heaters

When winter rolls around we search for ways in which we are able to stay warm without wasting money in energy bills. One of the most efficient ways that we are able to do with this is through the help of portable baseboard heaters. These are more commonly used in homes that are built in the colder climates.

These heaters are built to be energy efficient and to offer heat to each area of the room that it is installed in. These are designed to be portable so the person can easily install or move them to a new area when needed. The heat is dispersed through large fins through the use of a strong convection flow.

The greatest feature of these portable heaters is how they are able to heat the room. They are lined up against the wall and use convection heat to circulate the air in the room. During the heating process the hot air will begin to rise while the cold air will start to fall and eventually dissipate.

The traditional types of baseboard heaters will use between 500 to 1500 watts of power and can cover between 50 to 150 square feet. This number will vary depending on the size of the room and the size of the heater. Remember that when you purchase these heaters they need to be smaller or just the right size for the room. Any bigger will make it too warm and be a fire hazard.

Another advantage to using portable baseboard heaters is how quiet and safe they are. There is no risk of embers or sparks falling on the floor and catching fire. To clean them all you have to do is remove any dust or lint that is laying on top of it. You will find that these can cost anywhere between $60 to $150.
