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.

Latest Tips

Does my main water line need replacing?

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

While commonly taken for granted, the fresh water coming into your home or business is crucial to your daily life. The main water line that carries the fresh water is typically very durable and built to last. However, several factors cause breakage in the line. Commonly, these factors include corrosion, tree roots, or just the type of plumbing pipe used when the home or commercial building was built.

Spring is the perfect time for an electrical safety inspection

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Electrical circuitry and panels tend to get ignored throughout the year and only get addressed when you experience a short circuit or electrical trips. As a homeowner, you may not know everything involved in the electrical circuitry of your home but there are still some questions you should ask your electrical inspector and Spring is the perfect time to do it!

No matter the size of the job, from changing out old electrical paneling to major renovations to your home or property, you should always ask your electrical inspector whether or not your home’s electrical fittings are up to date and in compliance with current regulations and building codes.

Secondly, be sure your electrical inspector pays attention to the safety of your electrical panel and makes sure that they are properly insulated to avoid electrical shock. Panels must also never be placed near damp or wet areas.

Understanding your electrical consumption is also important. Washing machines, televisions and air conditioners consume significant amounts of electricity, and it is your responsibility as the homeowner to be sure they are connected to the right circuitry to avoid electrical shorts or fluctuations in voltage.

Lastly, once the inspection is completed and any necessary repairs made, have your inspector run a double check to be sure all of your electrical circuitry is working properly. Ask your inspector to provide you with a complete report of all inspections and repairs done.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Aubrey upgraded our electrical fuse panel, put in an updated outside service panel, replaced the main service line from the outside panel to the inside fuse box, and installed several outlets. His original estimate was complete and accurate. He brought our electrical system up to code and made several recommendations for changes and upgrades that we had not thought of. He worked with our schedule, was on time and very professional, and left our home as clean as when he arrived. He was extremely conscientious and reliable. We very highly recommend John's Electric and will definitely use them again.

Aubrey and Jeremy were awesome! I have an old house with old wiring and needed to install a new Range and above Range Microwave. They worked very hard to run new wiring to the breaker box in the basement, installed new plugs, and installed the appliances with great care.
