This baseboard heater's revolutionary design provides a sleek, compact heater profile, while improving heater performance, reducing energy consumption, and increasing comfort. It comes equipped with a built-in electronic thermostat which controls and maintains a consistent room temperature providing up to 33 percent energy savings. The rapid vertical laminar air flow, directing heat to the ceiling, means warm air is dispersed quickly to the center of the room. A nickel chromium element is totally enclosed within a steel sheath, providing superior life expectancy and resistance to rust. The heater is designed to be used in residential applications as well as commercial applications such as offices, lobbies, and bathrooms. It also has a full length automatic overheat reset for safety. 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.
