Why Cover your Heater using NeatHeat Baseboard?
What are the challenges in using a baseboard heater, and why cover your heater instead?
Homeowners will always have some kind of work they want to get done in their house; that’s just a fact of life. The downside is there are always other tasks that need to get done first; after all, you’re a homeowner with a full-time job and family and other personal responsibilities.
Many homeowners will squeeze reworks into their evenings and weekends, meaning they’ve only got so much time to offer their rework. That means that, when you’re a homeowner doing reworks, you’ve got to be as efficient as possible.
After all, you want the rework to last as long as possible, so you’ve got to be quick and do a good job. The problem is that homeowners don’t know how to do every single renovation, especially the more complicated ones like rewiring the home, fixing the plumbing, and putting shingles on the roof.
In the case of complicated renovations, it’s oftentimes better to hire a contractor to get the work done, but obviously you can’t hire a contractor every single time. Contractors are expensive, so you’ve got to budget between the renovations you do and the renovations someone else does for you.
How does Baseboard Renovation Work?
Some renovations are tougher to solve in such a straightforward way, however, as they can be time-consuming or expensive and not yield much in terms of satisfactory, long term results. Renovations are only useful if the time and effort you put in is worth it, meaning the rework has to be effective and last as long as possible.
So why is baseboard such a frustrating rework to deal with? Simply put, baseboard is guaranteed to take on damage as fast as possible and take quite a bit of time to clean or repaint.
Baseboard heaters are made of metal that covers the heating element, so the metal is constantly conducting energy and oxidizing. Since they’re constantly rusting, you constantly have to clean them, which may not be so bad if it was a normal renovation.
However, to actually clean the rust off of baseboard, you’ve got to take them apart, strip by strip, and scrub all the rust off; this gets more annoying when you have to get rid of dents and scratches too, as baseboards get very easily damaged.
Add in the fact that baseboard lines the walls along the floors in most rooms in a home, and you’ve got a full weekend worth of reworking baseboard for something that will barely last a season. So how do you renovate your baseboard effectively?
