Terms of the Trade: What is a Strip Heater?

strip heater made from gray metal

Strip heaters are simple warming devices composed of a heating element with a sheath and mount. Some feature rows of fins to help them function as radiant space heaters.

Strip heaters channel electricity through their heating element to warm the air around them. They're usually mounted along the base of a wall, and often concealed with an outside shell of some kind to prevent the potential hazard of direct contact with skin.
