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 use then commercially and industrially. They've never let us down. Far better and more caring plumbers than most out there. They've done residential repairs for friends of mine on jobs that others haven't been able to correct. In one shot, they diagnosed and corrected the problems without a callback. Like tattoos, good work ain't cheap and cheap work ain't good. Spend the money on them and get it done right, the first time

Just wanted to give a shout out to Zeek Plumbing! Our hot water heater went Monday afternoon and they were at our house by 8am Tuesday to fix it. Ryan was super easy and nice to work with and made sure that all of my questions were answered and I understood the next steps.The technicians that came to install the water heater were great! They were neat, friendly, quick and efficient. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!

We had a leak in our baseboard heat. Called Zeek at 8 am with a non-emergency and the team was at our house by 1 pm. Rich and Oliver were great, knowledgeable, and worked quickly and clean. I knew enough to DIY the fix, but didn't want to risk it and I will say it isn't often that a professional puts in as much care as the homeowner, but they very much did - even taking the time to answer my questions around the specific tools they used. I will absolutely make Zeek my first call for the next plumbing fix.

Zeek Plumbing is the best! I called and they said someone would arrive within the hour and someone actually arrived within the hour. We had a dripping pipe in the basement and the issue was resolved quickly and efficiently. I very highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!!

Zeek recently replaced my water heater. I called them in the morning and they were there within a few hours and had completed the work by early afternoon. Everyone was professional, courteous, and helpful.

Everyone at Zeek Plumbing was so kind and helpful. My heated driveway had a broken pipe but Steve, Rich, and the whole team went above and beyond to repair this as quickly as possible. I highly recommend their business for any plumbing issues you may have.

I’m a new homeowner and didn’t know what to expect when I had Zeek over to help me with a problem I had with a new washing machine connection when I moved in. Not only did they help with the connection, they spent time to explain my heating system to me. Now, two months later they have been to my home for two other problems that came about. While I wasn’t excited about having to spend money, they kept my budget in mind and were more than fair. I have nothing to but good things to say about their work, the people in their office and the people that have visited my home. I recommend them highly.

Steve and his team are the best of the best. He was so responsive and so caring!!!! Within a very short amount of time he sent us 2 of his team members (Rich and Oliver) who were outstanding. Extremely competent, knowledgeable, smart, fast, polite, and caring. We recently moved into the area and are so blessed to have found them. Highly recommend them!!!

The gentlemen from Zeek Plumbing were very professional and thorough in trying to determine the source of our problem. They had all the necessary parts with them to fix the problem and left everything very tidy after they finished the repair.
