Global Baseboard Heater Market: Overview

Baseboard heaters are the heaters controlled by thermostats located inside each room. These heaters cover electric heating elements covered in metal pipes. The pipes, surrounded by aluminum fins, help in transmission of heat. Air rises into the room when warmed within the heater, and cooler air is drawn into the bottom of the heater. Electric baseboard heaters are usually placed along the floor, beneath a window. Inside an aluminum housing, there is a cable containing a heating element. The heating through a baseboard is modest, easy, and economical to install, since it does not require a ductwork, making it low cost option for attention in room or in older homes, where adding new duct is not a viable option.

Based on type, the baseboard heater market can be segmented into electric base board heaters and hot water baseboard heaters. Electric baseboard heaters custom electric resistance to provide heating cables in the heating unit for heating the air, pushing it out of the unit. Simultaneously, the cooler air enters through the bottom of the unit to be warmed. In hot water baseboard heating, a boiler heats the flowing water and directs it to the pipes from heater to the other heater. Each unit takes a minor quantity of heat from the water and directs it on to the next heater. Less heat is transferred at end points in hot water baseboard heater. This is a disadvantage of the hot water baseboard type of heaters. Hot water creates a need of fire hazard measures before application, and requires unrestricted airflow to run the systems efficiently.

Baseboard heaters typically use a line-voltage thermostat, while other devices use low-voltage thermostats. Line-voltage thermostats can be built into the baseboard heater. They cannot sense the room temperature accurately. It is recommended to use a remote line-voltage or low-voltage thermostat installed on an interior wall. Line-voltage and low-voltage thermostats are available as programmable versions to automatically set back the temperature.

Baseboard heaters supply heat to each room separately. Therefore, they are ideally suited to zone heating, which involves heating rooms while allowing unoccupied area to remain cooler. Zone heating can produce energy savings of 20% compared to the heating occupied and unoccupied areas of the house.
