Using Electric Cove & Baseboard heaters for discounted electric utility rates

We get the following question frequently:

“My local electric company told me to look into Baseboard or Cove heaters for additional off-peak electrical usage”

Some Electric Utilities and Co-ops have programs such as off-peak electrical rates, electric heating rate, dual fuel, deferred load, RDC system, etc.

In North Dakota, The Northern Plains Electric Cooperative will give you the “electric heating rate” and will even provide thousands of dollars of financing at a low interest rate for your installation of electric heat as detailed on their website: http://www.nplains.com/Save_Energy_and_Be_Safe/energy_equip/baseboard/index.html

The great thing about this approach is that off-peak rates are seen during the nighttime hours when the need for heat is the greatest because the sun is down and the temperatures are colder. You don’t necessarily have to have an Electric Thermal Storage Heater system to take advantage of off-peak.

We tend to focus most of our stock on the shelf in the Qmark brand of cove heaters and can order many other brands for you. The great thing about cove heaters is that they are mounted very close to the ceiling on the wall and they enable you to place your furniture anywhere, unlike baseboard heaters which would be “blocked” by something like a large couch. Radiant heat energy is directed downward, warming people and objects near the floor.

Dimplex has launched a new website dedicated to these new wireless baseboard heaters: http://heathatfits.com/

The new LPC Convector is an addition to the already successful Dimplex LC Series baseboard heater and is also an engineering masterpiece and game changer. 

It is up to 42 percent shorter than conventional baseboard heaters. It features a top discharge to transfer heated air to the room faster. A unique shark-fin blade shape of its heating element fins improves heat transfer and accelerates heated air into the room. This configuration also creates a laminar flow effect that reduces heat loss through the outside wall up to 10 percent, providing energy savings to the end user.  It comes in a range of sizes (500-2,500 W).

The heater is available in 7 sizes in 5 inch increments from 20 inches up to 5 feet long. Yes, you read correctly, the 2,500 watt heater is only 5 feet long. 
Features
• Faster heating of the room than a conventional baseboard due to rapid vertical laminar air flow, directing heat to the ceiling, speeding dispersal of warm air into the center of the room 
• Improved performance and reduced length through use of top heat discharge and new shark-fin blade design on a steel tubular element for improved heat transfer and longer life
• Discreet styling, reduced length and added versatility of placement provide more options when designing a room
• Full length automatic overheat reset for safety
Applications
• All residential applications, commercial offices, lobbies, washrooms

The invention (first patent) of the electric baseboard heater

86 years ago William Wesley Hicks from San Francisco invented the first electrical baseboard heater. The first patent for an electric baseboard heater was patent number 1,664,171, filed in 1925 and issued Mar 27, 1928:

 

You can see the whole patent here and here

Mr. Hicks was well ahead of his time and actually successfully made a design that replaced the actual wood baseboards and hid the heater behind it.  That is something that people are still trying to invent today.  Hence the birth of the name “Baseboard Heater” because the heater was also the baseboards!
