Baseboard Heating Systems
Baseboard heating is a system that uses hot water heated by a boiler to heat a space through a combination of convection and radiation. It is an effective solution to heating your whole house or a single room at a time. Western Mechanical in Albuquerque, New Mexico offers this great heating option for your residence or business with installation, regular maintenance and more.
How does a Baseboard Heating System Work?
Each dwelling unit has an individual thermostat that regulates that particular room. When the air temperature in the unit drops below the setting, the zone valve begins to allow heated water from the boiler to circulate through the water lines to heat emitters. This valve closes once the temperature of the room has reached the setting placed on the thermostat. The colder return water then returns to the boiler to reheat. This cycle continues as the temperature fluctuates in a room.

Advantages of Baseboard Heating in Albuquerque
Baseboard heaters have many advantages to them when compared to conventional forced air heating systems. In addition to conserving energy by cycling air, baseboard heating systems also have the following advantages:
- Close temperature control
- Fuel options for the boiler
Baseboard heating can also be visually appealing when compared to other heaters. By adding baseboard heating covers, you can dramatically improve the look of any room. These covers provide an elegant look to your baseboard heating units and make them not as obvious to guests.
