Question Hydronic electric baseboard vs standard electric baseboard

Can someone please let me know if hydronic electric baseboard heaters are really more efficient than regular electric baseboard heaters.

Example of hydronic electric baseboard

These types of baseboards with fluid in them tend to be a lot more expensive.

Thanks in advance

I dont know why or how it is. But any and all people that have had them that I know. The ones with just the elements in them have had a lower electric bill. We have pull many out and put in a heatpump. That does make for a much lower electric bill.

They are both going to use the same amount of power...

The hydronic one are just going to feel a bit more even heat or another word, softer heat..

The only way you can save money is if you shut down your main heating system, and only heat one room.....

If you want to save money, look into heat pump.
