Safety of new baseboard heaters?
I’m really torn on what we should do for baseboard heaters. Dimplex and Likewise makes compact (inexpensive) baseboard heaters… 40″ long for 1500W. Everything else is about 65″(ish) for the same wattage. But I’m concerned about the Likewise and Dimplex because the tops are open with a grate thing. Someone told me that they’re fire hazards because the tops are open. So then I thought about getting the “old style” with the panel at the top (where it’s open more in the middle).
Does anyone know of the safety of these new style heaters? Wouldn’t they get all filled with dust and stuff too? Any experience with them?
