How Redoing your Baseboard Heat can be Quick and Easy
What makes redoing your baseboard heat easy? What are the benefits to using a heater cover?
Any homeowner will tell you that one of the most time consuming parts of owning a house is just taking the time to maintain all of the different physicals aspects of it. After all, a house has multiple points of failure whether cosmetics like painting and cleaning or more functional like dealing with air conditioning or plumbing.
The vast majority of smaller, easier renovations the homeowner will sacrifice some of their time to pull off in order to save on money. However, other renovations are longer and more complicated and require hiring someone else, sacrificing quite a bit of money but also saving you a lot of time to do the job yourself.
Either way, you spend a lot of time or money to pull off a renovation in hopes that it will last as long as possible. A renovation needs to have longevity in order to be successful; while it might take you time to repaint or cost you money to get your roof shingled, odds are good you’re not going to have to worry about it for a few years.
The Challenges to Redoing your Baseboard Heat
The same cannot be said for baseboard renovations, which are incredibly time consuming, costly, and don’t provide you much in terms of longevity in renovation. Homes provide heat through hot water heating, which in turn provides the energy to rooms in the house through baseboard heaters and the hidden heating elements.
Because the metal absorbs so much of the heat from the element, they tend to oxidize and attract filth very quickly. In addition, the baseboard heaters line the walls along the floors in most rooms in a home so they become neglected and bumped into, taking damage like scratches and dents.
To effectively renovate the baseboard, you need to take apart each piece on each strip of baseboard in the house, renovate each and every piece, and put it all together.
Just disassembling and reassembling takes time, but dealing with oxidation, dents, and scratches all over your baseboard is a huge headache. Luckily, redoing your baseboard heat can be a very simple process if you use something like a baseboard cover.
Putting on a Baseboard Cover
With a heater cover, redoing your baseboard heat is simple because instead of renovating the heaters themselves, you simply install a cover over your existing baseboard. That way, if your covers need to be cleaned, replaced, or repainted, popping them off and getting the job done is very easy.
