Baseboard Heating

Baseboard heaters are common place in many homes as an efficient and cost effective installation. However not all baseboard heaters are made equally and certainly are not all installed properly.

This baseboard heater in impeding the use of the bottom drawer of these bathroom cabinets, not the most convenient. More importantly is the damage it is doing to the wall above indicating that the baseboard heater while being improperly installed is also defective, putting the house at risk for fire.

Finally we at Inspections Rodrigues Inc. are of the opinion that baseboard heaters that are open vertically like the model above are a  much greater risk for fire. To many times we have found combustible objects such as children's toys, pencils or other foreign objects just waiting to burn in the exposed fins of the baseboard heater.
