Baseboard electric heat is generated from radiators that are placed along the floor level of an exposed wall, usually beneath a window. Using baseboard electric heat is a quiet, reliable and safe way to heat your individual rooms. While not your main source of heat, they are a great supplemental heat source. Because thermostats are placed in each room, it is easy to control the temperature. For example, if you aren't in a certain room, you can turn down the heat or shut it off completely. This way, you are saving money by not using electricity. Many people like to put these electric heaters in rooms throughout their homes, like a bathroom, a bedroom, or even a room that is cooler than other rooms. That way, they can adjust the temperature accordingly. This heating system is great in the bedroom because it is so quiet.
