Why use a Heat Cover from NeatHeat?
What are the challenges homeowners face with base board? Why use a heat cover instead of just renovating the base board?
When winter rolls around, homeowners scramble to make those last minute renovations to get their home in order again, using whatever free time they’ve got to accomplish it. It’s no secret that owning a home is challenging for that very reason: they’ve only got so much free time and extra money left over after paying bills to accomplish the renovations they want.
Most homeowners work full time throughout the week and have to procrastinate most of their house work towards the weekend, where they scramble to get as much done as efficiently as possible. Most of the time it’s smaller tasks like outdoor landscaping, cleaning, and minor repair and upkeep jobs around the house.
But every once in a bit, a bigger job comes along like a full repainting, installation of new carpeting, or electrical work, and homeowners have to make a choice at that point: do they do the work themselves or do they hire someone else to get the job done?
It generally depends on what the homeowner is capable of doing; it’s not smart to do renovation work if you can’t get it done right. However, many homeowners will roll up their sleeves and try to learn how to get the renovation done, because contractors tend to be expensive.
How Home Renovations Work
Whichever path you take, the endgame is the same: a good renovation, done right, that lasts a long time. Not all renovations will accomplish these tasks however, and some tend to be both time consuming and last a short period of time.
This is why homeowners tend to ignore base board renovation work: it’s obnoxious to spend hours on end taking apart all of the base board strip by strip, cleaning off all the rust and filth, getting rid of the scratches and dents, and putting it all back together again, just to deal with them looking subpar within a short period of time.
Even gasfitters don’t have a great solution for renovating the base board as them rusting is inevitability and they easily take damage as well.
Why Use a Heat Cover from NeatHeat?
However, using base board heating covers can be the better solution as a cover snaps right over the existing base board instead of reworking the base board. So why use a heat cover, and what kind of base board cover should you be using?
Using NeatHeat’s base board covers is beneficial because, unlike your heaters and other covers, they are made of a composite polymer, meaning they don’t rust, chip, or dent, and they don’t yellow or lose their color over time either.
In addition, they are thermally conditioned to not melt or offset heat well below the operating temperature of the home, and they provide heat flow via convection instead of absorbing and conducting the heat like your metal base board will.
The benefit to NeatHeat is that you can take off the front metal plate and the fins and still snap their covers right over the heating element, making life much easier. To learn more about why use a heat cover from NeatHeat, click here.
