Rated 4 out of 5Â by Danl Beats the standard baseboard heaters
Got this to replace a baseboard heater that had a high pitched "cycling" whine, had if for 3 weeks. It was installed by an electrician. The pitch was that this Hydronic Baseboard Heater was quieter & more efficient. Regarding quiet, the whine is gone & there is less snap, crackle, & pop than typical baseboards. Strangely once it did make some popping noises every 10-20 seconds for 3-5 minutes. Other than that it has been quiet. It does take longer to heat the room, but cycles less. I don't have any way to measure the efficiency. Overall we are satisfied & certainly prefer this to the standard baseboard heater.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by 46552 excellent
Although, I just ordered my replacement unit today, it is replacing a unit I've had for 44 years.
Hopefully, the quality will still be the same.
I also have longer units (higher wattage) that have made noise in the past. The salesman that I purchased them from, back then, suggested loosening some screws that holds the element into the
unit. This has worked very well over the years, that I've had them. Maybe someone's noise problems can be elemininated by using this technique.
I hope this information helps someone enjoy their added heat as much as I have.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BAZM Good Product
I would recommend this product it works well and looks nice. I think it is a rip off they do not include thermostats and the installation is not as easy as they make it sound.
If you are good with electrical work easy but if you are a laymen like me I recommend having a professional do the install.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cowboy excellent value
Has performed just how the manufacture said and is very energy efficient. We went with the next size bigger heater based on the square footage. It has made a big difference in keeping our rooms warm due to having that extra oil heated. You will have to adjust your thermostat down if you go to a bigger heater due to the extra heat being put out by the longer baseboard.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by tori So far so good...
Just got these installed last week (1st week Feb). Relatively easy to install. This style does not come with a bracket like the old ones and the old brackets could not be attached to this so the hardest part seemed to be making a bracket to put between the heater and the wall (they cannot be installed directly against paper backed walls such as drywall). Heats nicely. makes a few minor noises (indicating that they are heating) but barely noticable. They look amazing although the "front plate" (that covers the heating element) seems slightly flimsy when taking off (to clean the element yrly) because of how long it is and there is no center hook to brace it against. We chose these heaters because they are the "adult children" of the interthermal ones we replaced (Cadet obtained the patent for interthermal's heaters. The interthermal's we had were from Aug 73 so they lasted almost 38 yrs-we are praying that the cadets will last at least half as long).
