One area of the home that often gets overlooked for permanent heating is the sunroom. If you’re lucky enough to have a room that lets you enjoy the surrounding landscape from the comfort of a couch or daybed, don’t limit your usage to the two or three warmer seasons!
Did you know that in many areas of the country, a room addition isn’t counted as “finished” unless it’s heated? Building that extra room was tiring, stressful and expensive, but it’s worth it to go that extra mile to install a permanent heating solution in your room.
Adding a heat source to your sunroom or enclosed porch will help it count as livable square footage in many areas, which helps add value to your home. If you’re in the process of selling your home, or thinking of doing so in the future, you can take your house from 1350 finished square feet to 1550 in less than a day!
A baseboard heater is a great way to get sufficient heating into your room. Baseboard heaters are relatively cheap and easy to install, and since they’re so low-profile, they won’t affect the look of the room at all.
It’s an awesome little upgrade that you can enjoy for years to come, and even use as a key selling point for any future moves.
Electric baseboard heaters use convection to quietly and safely heat the air. They take in the cold air near the floor, warm it up, and release it back into the room where it can rise. Many models have safety switches that prevent overheating, and are UL or ETL- listed.
Electric baseboard heaters don’t require any duct work, and maintenance is a breeze since there are no moving parts.
A baseboard heater gives you a crisp and streamlined heating solution that’s easy to use and safe. You’ll gain tons of finished square feet– all for only about a dollar per square foot.
