Not your Dads Baseboard Heat

Sure, you dont think of Baseboard heat when the Humidex is 36 C but there is a new generation of Baseboard that is efficient and attractive and a great retrofit consideration Especially here in Manitoba. I have seen them employed in a number of small homes as well and the heat they throw is impressive and the convection is noticable

The following info is from the Dimplex heater site 

The LPC heaters raise the temperature at the center of a typical room by 5 ˚C in half the time of a conventional baseboard. The result is faster heating, less heat loss through the outside walls, and greater comfort.

  • Heats rooms up to 40% faster* than conventional baseboards
  • Top discharge design creates rapid heat flow to the center of the room
  • A boundary layer of slow-moving air exists against the wall. Turbulent airflow from conventional baseboards disrupts this boundary layer, depositing visible airborne contaminants on the wall.
  • Rapid heat flow reduces heat loss into walls by 10%

    Performance Comparisons

  • Dimplex North America Limited stands behind it’s claims on the LPC products.

    42% Smaller LPC series heaters are up to 42% shorter than conventional baseboard heaters of the same wattage and heating capability.

    40% Faster The LPC heater and a conventional baseboard were analyzed in a room heat recovery lab from a 2 ˚C setback. The results of this test showed that the LPC heater reached the set point up to 40% faster than the conventional baseboard.

    Up to 33% Energy Savings On-board LCD thermostat saves up to 33% energy through proportional control. A comparison was made of a baseboard heater with a bi-metal thermostat, set to ensure the room never dropped below the desired temperature.

  • I am definetly impressed with the product so price some out i found this one for 67$ at Home Hardware in Selkirk MB
