Re: hydronic baseboard heaters
The difference between the hydronic heaters and the standard, old school style, is the hydronics are an element inside an oil filled tube. The element heats up the oil and radiates heat longer, after the element has turned off. The old style are far cheaper but just heat the air, and cool immediately as soon as the stat goes off. An 8 footer would cover 600 sq ft. - 2 , 4 footers spread out woul be better. Get 240 volt units, use 12 wire.
