Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dilly Perfect solution for a small room
If you have a small to medium size room you need to heat and need a simple solution, this is it. Unit is attractive and unobtrusive. Once turned on, you will feel immediate heat and when turned off the warmth continues for a while. Two caveats: You'll need to purchase the thermostat separately and you need access to 240v.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel Annoying 60 Cycle Humm
I purchased this product because the reviews said it was quiet; it is not. I discovered that they have a 60 cycle hum similar to an old light fixture ballast. I am very sensitive to noise and find the sound annoying.
The wiring instruction belabor the obvious but do not describe in detail the features that would be unique to this product. For the most important details, they might as well not have been in the box.
Be prepared for a strong odor when first putting the heater into use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FREIII Good product; wiring detail not so much.......
This was a replacement for an existing hydronic baseboard heater. Simple removal of the old and replace with the new unit. I am an experienced do it yourselfer, and I was confused by the wiring directions. I had to go on the internet, where I discovered, others had the same confusion. I hope the manufacturer will make their directions more clear. When installed, the product worked as I expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian I love this hydronic heater. I have the other type at my cabin and it is very noisy
I love my hydronic baseboard heater. I have the other type at my cabin and it is very noisy. This one I can't tell it is on unless I go over and put my hand over it. Well worth the extra cost.

I own a 1970's built, 490sf condo that is limited to a single 8ft electric baseboard heater. The original heater was non-hydronic which I removed 7 years ago and did not replace until a few days ago with an 8ft hydronic (Where I live, the temp rarely drop below 40(f) during the winter. I'd use a portable oil filled radiator style heater when needed).
Because we used the existing wires, Installation wasn't difficult. We turned off the power and swaped the wires.
Since I have not had a hard-wired heater for a few years, I cannot comment on the efficiency, yet. Rated for 200sf, with my condo more than double that size I am expecting my electric bill to jump however, it's only for a few months of the year.
Even with this unit being undersized (based on the manufacturer's specs.) it heats the place quickly, and seems to maintain the temp very well and surprisingly even.
With my thermostat located on the back side of the opposite wall from the heater (clear across the room) I have been able to maintain 68(f). I haven't tried to go above that temp yet.
I know that the heater is cycling on and off (not running continuously) because we wired it through a transformer and relay and I can hear the relay click on and off. The heater seems to be on steady for about 15min but once it reaches 68, it turns off for about 30min. The beauty of a hydronic heater is that the liquid part of the heater remains hot which helps maintain room temp after the thermostat shuts it off.
Wired through a transformer/relay allowed me more choices for thermostats. I chose a Honeywell 5-2 day programmable thermostat which I'm hoping will help with the efficiency.
As the installation manual states, the unit will let off a "new" smell the 1st few times you use it. That was no lie. It smelled like chemicals but dissipated after about 20-30 minutes of use and hasn't happened since. The unit is dead silent, seems well built, and heats my place quickly despite being undersized. The only negative is that the stores do not stock this item. I had to wait for it to be shipped.
