I was contacted by Christine from BaseboardRads.com about their product which is a baseboard radiator.
You can create extra space in your home by converting old, iron radiators into these compact baseboard rads. They work with hydronic heating systems and come ready to install with connectors already in place. No welding or cutting is necessary.
Dimensions: They are 7 1/8″ high, 1 1/16″ thick and are available in various lengths. An eight foot baseboard rad will heat an average-sized room.
They are paintable, and you can find matching MDF baseboards anywhere baseboards are sold.
The rads are safer than electric baseboard heaters because there are no exposed elements. They are also more energy efficient.
Cost is $32/foot plus the cost of installation. Christine noted that they should be installed by a certified HVAC technician or plumber because they are part of a hydronic heating system.
The rads are manufactured in Pickering, Ontario.
