Baseboard Heating

images

Hot water (or hydronic) baseboard heaters are a more cost efficient alternative to electric baseboard heaters. This type of baseboard heat employs hot water instead of electricity. The water is pumped from a boiler that keeps the water at a constant temperature. It then flows through pipes to individual baseboard heating units to heat rooms.

Advantages to Hot Water Baseboard Heating

  • Saves Money – Although the cost of a hydronic baseboard heater may be less than installing radiant heating, it may originally cost more than an electric heater. In the long run, the investment is well worth it, due to the savings on electricity bills.
  • Energy Efficiency – Hot water baseboard heaters are more popular today because they are more energy efficient than electric heaters. Of course, the type of boiler used to heat the water will affect the energy efficiency as well. Combi boilers, and other high efficiency boilers, are much more economical than the electric boilers which consume more energy.
  • Constant Flow of Warmth – The hydronic baseboard heater maintains a constant flow of warm air due to the fact that the boiler maintains the water at a constant temperature at all times.
  • Easy Installation – The hot water heater does not require any sophisticated installation, unlike the radiant heating system.
  • Safe – The hot water heater does expel any toxic substances, as it works with hot water.

If all of the components of the baseboard heater are of good quality (pipes, boiler, water pump) you should not have to worry about repair and maintenance issues. With quality components, hot water baseboard heaters are an efficient heat source.  They also tend to be more efficient than other central heating systems.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

We are sooo happy with our experiences with Zeek! We had them out twice - they did a bunch of repairs for us and then when it turned out the problem was deeper than we thought they came back and stuck with it until they figured it out. They were professional, neat, safe and thorough. Huge thanks to Rich for coming out to diagnose the problem and the whole team for hanging in until it was fixed!

We woke up to see a leak coming through our kitchen ceiling, and we feared the worst. Tim and RJ were great. They diagnosed and solved the issue quickly and gave me a very fair price. Very considerate and professional. Highly recommended these guys.

My family and I cannot thank Zeek Plumbing enough! We had a horrible experience with Best Buy trying to get our new washer/dryer installed when we moved into our new house. The team Best Buy hired was a no call/no show twice! Then they said they didn't have the parts they needed, so we ended up canceling their service. We finally came across Zeek and Bill was able to come out the next morning. He was very nice and professional and clearly an expert in his field. The job was done perfectly within a few hours and now our new home is up and running like a well oiled machine. We will definitely be calling Zeek back for anything needed in the future. Thank you!

ZEEK plumbing came through when our Water Heater failed. Called other plumbers but ZEEK was the only one to offer and on the spot estimate and immediate response to replace our water heater.I have used ZEEK before and once again a most professional crew arrived and completed the installation in a timely proficient manner. I would highly recommend ZEEK to anyone's plumbing needs. They truly focus on customer care which is evident in the services performed, THANK YOU ZEEK!

I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!
