The Dimplex LC Series Linear Convector Baseboard Heater provides a sleek, compact heater profile, while improving heater performance, reducing energy consumption, and improving comfort. The heater is designed to be used in residential applications as well as commercial applications such as offices, lobbies, and bathrooms. The rapid vertical laminar air flow, directing heat to the ceiling, means warm air is dispersed quickly to the center of the room. It has a full length automatic overheat reset for safety and may be used with wall or top mounted built-in thermostat (not included). Note for sizing: The general rule of thumb for primary heat in most homes is 10 watts per square foot. For example, 10'x15'= 150 sq.ft. - 1500 watts.
