Recently moved into home with hot water baseboard. We want to use floor length drapes from our previous home.
I have two concerns:
1. Are they a fire hazard over hot water baseboard? I know they would be over electric baseboard but we are only hot water baseboard.
2. Will they cause our heating to work less efficiently - I am sure leaving them open would lead to more efficient system rather than closed.
I have been hunting on the internet and can't find any definite answers.
If I need to, I plan can shorten the drapes if fire or heating inefficiency is a problem.
Thanks for anyone's help!
