Question HOT WATER vs. ELECTRIC BASEBOARD

Stupid question....

....how do I tell the difference between hot water & electric baseboard heat? I just moved into a house with baseboard heat and would like to know which one we have installed.

THANKS!

Like Matt said Is there a boiler in the basement?? When you look in the baseboards do you see a large copper pipe that has aluminum fins all long most of it. Should be hot water.

Baseboards along the wall .Do you have a tstat in each room and when you turn it up you get heat right away that can be electric.
