We have electric baseboard heaters throughout our home. Each room has its own thermostat and when we are using the room we turn the heat on and when we are not the heat is off. In our living room I installed a new programmable thermostat for electric baseboard heaters hoping it would help keep the heat adjusted and our bill low. Unfortunately it has not done either. The heaters do not seem to warm up to the programmed temperature, making the room always cold. We are constantly turning up the thermostat, but still nothing. We are continually vacuuming them and make sure they are not blocked and still nothing. Also when they turn on there is always a lot of cracking and banging noise.
I would like to know if anyone makes an energy efficient electric baseboard heater. I have done some research and found a company, Hydo-Sil that makes heaters with Silicone in them. They claim that they heat longer and will save you money on your electric bill. Have you ever heard of them? We are looking for any suggestion that can help us stay warm and keep our electric bill low.
Thanks, Mike and Jessica
