Replacement for Electric Baseboard Heating Units
In our 1980’s house we have three rooms upstairs which have the classic baseboard electric heat units. Is there a more efficient but similar unit we can replace them with? The rest of the house is heated by forced hot water from an oil burner. We have opted not to extend that system to these rooms because of the cost and because we will eventually be moving to a heat pump when the boiler reaches the end of its lifespan in a few years. And even when we do that, it is likely these rooms will still need a supplemental heat source. Ideally that would be a more efficient baseboard/wall system.
