A hot water baseboard heater can save you money on your energy bill, because compared to electric baseboard heaters, it uses hot water in order to heat the room. The hot water is in turn produced by a boiler, which consumes much less energy. These boilers can also be powered and fueled by biomass fuel, such as pellets or wood, which will significantly save you on power costs. Also, if you compare these baseboard heaters to the standard radiator, their energy consumption is much less. Heating radiators gobble up electricity, and are not exactly energy efficient. Hot water baseboard heaters also have thermostats that you can set in order to maintain the temperature. This move saves on electricity as well.
