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.

What is GFCI protection and how is it maintained?

Monday, May 6, 2019

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) devices are required in specific areas of our homes by law.  We must all have GFCI protection in certain parts of our house such as our kitchens, bathrooms, unfinished basements, outside our homes as well as our garages. GFCI devices monitor the electricity between the ungrounded (hot) and grounded (neutral) conductors. If there is an improper imbalance between the two conductors the GFCI will stop the power from exiting the receptacle, so no one gets an electrical shock.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Very professional. Great service. I will keep this number for all my electrical needs.

Nice to find someone who is trustworthy and a great licensed electrician.

First, they were there within the hour of calling them. Secondly, I thought I had 2 bad florescent lights, but it turned out to be tripped GFI outlets. Instead of just going ahead and replacing the lights, the electrician found the tripped outlets and let me know that was all the problem was. He showed me where they were so, if I had a problem in the future I could look there first. I appreciate his honesty. It saved me a lot of money.
