Baseboard Heaters

Baseboard Heaters

Let’s get warm and cozy!

Are there rooms in your home that seem extra chilly? Do you want to take the nip out of the air without using a dangerous space heater? If you answered yes to any of the questions, then it’s time to give John's Electric a call.

John's Electric can make any room in your home warmer and cozy by adding baseboard heaters. Baseboard heaters are great alternatives when it’s not practical to extend the existing heating system to supply heat to a new addition, or the existing heat is not adequate.

Electric baseboard heaters are zonal heaters controlled by thermostats located within each room and depending on how large the room will depend on how large of a baseboard heater you will need. One of our electrical experts will review your home and the rooms that you want baseboard heaters installed and will determine what size you should get and determine what size circuits you will need for the installation of the baseboard heater.

How do they work?

Baseboard heaters contain electric heating elements encased in metal pipes that go from one end of the enclosure to the other. As air within the heater is warmed, it rises into the room, and cooler air is drawn into the bottom of the heater.

If possible, baseboard heaters should be installed under windows. As heat rises from the heater, it will neutralize the cold air that comes from the windows. Baseboard heaters should always be installed on the perimeter walls because this is where the greatest heat loss occurs.

There are many rules that should be followed when installing a baseboard heater, that’s why you should always have a licensed professional from John's Electric do the installation. Our aim is to keep you and your family safe, and there is nothing more dangerous than electricity. If a baseboard heater is installed in the wrong location, improperly installed or not the correct circuit is installed, then a tragedy is just waiting to happen.

John's Electric offers a variety of types of baseboard heaters to fit any budget. Call us today and we get rid of the chill, and that is a guarantee.

Is aluminum wire a fire hazard and what should I do about it?

Monday, March 11, 2019

From the mid-'60s to the early '70s, electricians in many new or remodeled homes installed aluminum wiring to feed branch circuits from the main panel to outlets and lighting fixtures.  What was later discovered is that while continuous runs of aluminum wire didn't present problems, when those wires were connected to light switches, outlets and other wires in junction boxes, the connections deteriorated and became fire hazards.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Thanks for Saving Me!

John's Electric was wonderful! I called and he was at my house within an hour!! I was at great risk of fire because of my breaker overheating, and he got me taken care of quickly, and affordably! I have a home warranty, that wouldn't cover my issue, and he jumped in and took care of me. If I ever had need again, I know who to call. Couldn't recommend John's any higher!!!

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.
