We expertly install high-efficiency electric heating systems in Madison and Northern and Central NJ
Homeowners often view electricity as a clean, reliable, hassle-free heat source, but the reality is we consume a great deal of fossil fuel to produce electricity at power plants throughout the country.
Only about 7% of our electricity comes from renewable energy sources.
Most electrical power plants burn coal or natural gas, and both of these fuels contribute to air pollution and climate change. Electric heat is one of the least efficient methods of heating your home. If you have electric heat in your home- you are paying far too much for heating. You’re also likely to have hot and cold spots in your house and even within the same room!
Electric heating systems
While electric heating systems are not a good option for whole-home heating, they can be beneficial for smaller spaces or as a supplementary option. There are two main types of electric heating systems for this purpose:
Quite a few different types of these heaters are available. Portable models are available, as well as models designed to be hardwired and mounted on the wall. Many electric space heaters are equipped with fans to better distribute heated air, and some have adjustable thermostat-based controls.
This type of heating system works just like the heating coils on top of an electric range. The electric current runs through a resistant material, causing it to heat up. Aluminum fins on an electric baseboard heater increase the surface area of the heating unit to improve convective and radiant heat transfer.
