Redoing your Heating in Seconds, Permanently

How can redoing your heating system be easy, cost effective, and last a really long time?

redoing your heatingKeeping your home clean is all about being cost efficient, as you can’t just drop all of your money on lofty renovation work that doesn’t provide you with a fiscal advantage in the long run.

This is why many homeowners become pros in the do-it-yourself field; that way, they can save money and spend some of their own time on weekends getting good looking, effective renovations accomplished.

Your time is valuable as well, so making sure you’re efficient in your renovation work isn’t a bad idea, because at the end of the day, you want the renovation you do to last a long time. No homeowner installs tile in a bathroom with the expectation of redoing it in a year because the caulking cracked and tiling is loose.

Any reworks you do in your house you want done well, so if you can’t do the work in a reasonable way, it’s wise to hire someone, even if it ends up costing you a lot of money. The struggle homeowners have is when a renovation has no longevity to it, takes a long time, and costs them too much in the long run.

Difficulties in Redoing your Heating

No homeowners wants to spend multiple weekends a year repainting their entire house, just like no homeowners want to redo their baseboard over and over in a yearly basis. Redoing your heating should be a simple task, but the problem is that metal baseboard heaters are outdated and end up rusting, denting, and scratching rather easily and constantly.

To make matters more frustrating, heater parts don’t just pop off in a cinch; you’ve got to unscrew and tear apart piece by piece, and there’s enough baseboard in most homes that this ends up taking a long time.

At the end of the day, you want renovations to last a long time without costing you so much in terms of time and money, so why not go about redoing your heating with a smart, easy solution? Popping a cover over your heaters is effective as it’s cosmetically more attractive and the covers are a lot easier to deal with versus your metal baseboard.

How is NeatHeat Convenient to Use?

In fact, covers from NeatHeat will actually replace the base board parts! NeatHeat’s covers snap on using the back plates and the clips located under the heating element, so all other metal parts can be removed and discarded. NeatHeat’s covers are made of polymer which is never going to rust or dent, and they don’t show scratches easily due to a continuous color.

The covers have been thermally conditioned so they won’t take damaged from the heating element over time, including yellowing or fading over time like most standard polymers. NeatHeat covers snap right on over the heaters and are incredibly easy to adjust for your specific length of baseboard and install.

The four and six foot pieces can either be lengthened using a simple splice plate or cut using a hack saw or chop saw, and the corner and end caps will hold all of the parts together tightly, preventing removal from kicking or bumping.

NeatHeat’s covers make redoing your heating easy, as they can also be removed quickly if you want to repaint (which only requires spray paint) or clean (using household cleaners). To learn more about how redoing your heating takes seconds with NeatHeat, click here.
