Dimplex Electric Baseboards Keep the Family's new Addition Warm and Cozy
When an HVAC modification and electric fireplace weren't providing adequate heat in a home addition, one of our customers found a great solution in a Linear Proportional Convector electric heater.
A few years back, this customer had a 300-square-foot addition built onto his home. The new room featured a lot of windows, had no basement under it, and faced north, meaning that heating would be critical in winter. Central heating wasn't enough to keep the new room warm in the coldest months, unless they cranked up the thermostat which made the rest of the home too warm. They added an electric fireplace, which provided enough heat but had to run constantly to keep the room at 21°C (69.8°F).
That's where the Dimplex electric baseboard heaters come in. They were already familiar with Dimplex fireplaces and decided to call Dimplex customer service after learning about the new baseboards online. They ended up picking up a 2,500-watt heater at the local hardware store and having it installed by a local electrician.
“The results were totally amazing," the customer said. “Immediately after installation, the effect was apparent. The room had never been so evenly warmed."
They also appreciate the built-in electronic thermostat and digital display, which they say is easy to use and see.
What do they like best of all?
“Our heat bills haven't changed at all,” he said. Adding that even though winter in his area “has been brutally cold."
