Can I increase the efficiency of my hydronic baseboard heater? Can I increase the efficiency of my hydronic baseboard heater?
A hydronic baseboard heater is an energy efficient, clean way to heat part or all of your home. It uses water or steam to heat the area. To keep the unit efficient, you must occasionally release the buildup of pressure from the hot water or steam. This is a simple job, and most units will come with the instructions to do this. Keep furniture and draperies away from the unit, which can absorb or block the emission of heat. In very large rooms, you can use a circulating or ceiling fan on low to move the heat around the room and make it feel warmer.
