Skirting board heaters from Energy-com provide energy-efficient heating and at the same time a healthy and pleasant room climate thanks to their special mode of operation. The principle of a baseboard heater differs from the way conventional radiators work, which are also called radiators or convectors and, as convection heaters, make use of the principle of convection heat. Baseboard heating, as used in the form of our baseboard heaters, works on the principle of radiant heat and is therefore also referred to as radiant heating. At first glance, our baseboard heaters look like skirting boards, are installed as a connection between the floor and the wall in the entire room and, depending on the chosen design, function either electrically or with a water circuit. The connection to the water circuit is unproblematic in most buildings, otherwise the electric baseboard heating is a good alternative.

Radiant heat powered by electricity or hot water

Once connected, the baseboard heaters emit their heat evenly to the walls and into the room, allowing it to be optimally distributed throughout the room. Unlike conventional heating systems, this mode of operation does not create cold zones. The radiant heat enables optimum energy utilisation, which in turn enables you to save energy and thus energy costs, while at the same time protecting the environment. Heating with electricity or water? An ideal alternative to fossil fuels as often used in conventional heating systems! Our electric baseboard heaters are fitted with heating rods that can be quickly heated electrically by the current flowing through them. Our water-bearing baseboard heaters conduct hot water through the water pipes installed inside them. Rapid regulation or control via thermostats contributes significantly to energy efficiency. Thanks to the radiant heat, you can rely on sustainable, cost-saving heating with savings of up to 28% compared to conventional systems and benefit from a healthy and pleasant indoor climate in an environmentally friendly way thanks to the energy-efficient operation of the baseboard heaters.

How skirting board heaters help improve health

However, baseboard heaters not only offer energy-efficient and energy-cost-reducing functionality, but also benefit your well-being. Unlike convection heaters, they ensure low air circulation in the room. Since they hardly stir up any dust or other particles thanks to the radiant heat, they are the ideal heating systems for allergy sufferers and sensitive noses. Air that is too humid or too dry? Not with the baseboard heaters from, also known as baseboard heating! The evenly distributed heat in the room is perceived as pleasant and also effectively counteracts the cooling of the walls. Damp spots and mould, which can damage your health and also the fabric of the building, do not become a problem thanks to the use of skirting board heating!
