It may be air bound bleed the air out with an air bleeder. Also check your circulating pump to make sure it is working.

Yes, and no: Yes, if you can plumb hot water to circulate through the copper pipe. This system is "base board hydronic" heat. I replaced the electric base board heat in my house with fine line 30. I had to purchase a boiler and circulation pump to provide the hot water (140F) for the system to work. No, these will not work using electricity.

CAN THIS BE HOOKED UP TO A ELEC. HOT WATER HEATER<

Asked by JIM January 5, 2021

Answers

You could, but electric baseboard would be a better cheaper solution. As you need a potable water circulating pump (prevent pump corrosion), relay (unless running continuous), bleeder valve, and water heater. If you are using the water heater for hot water it will reduce your recovery rate. BTU output varies based on water temp. 120F is only about 1100BTU for this model. You could use a electric portable heater or 2' electric baseboard and achieve the same output. Even M type copper is rated for several hundred psi, so pressure is not the issue. Oxygen corrosion issues are for the iron parts in boilers and cast iron circulating pumps. Hard water will effect the heat transfer over time the same as it will foul a hot water heater. While I can't speak to you situation, typically unless you are planning on installing a boiler in the near future though this would not be a recommended solution and an expensive solution.

installation instructions

Asked by Jaysmith August 2, 2014

The units have a paper template for the pipe placement off the wall or floor. I install the casing 3/4 inch off the floor using wood spacing blocks and use wallboard screws to mount to studs. Do not install the screws behind the fins and pipe, if you ever have to remove the casing you will be in for a lot of work. When installing units together, use a large level or level string.

Will you send me a picture of the " Fully Assembled Enclosure""

I used a 3/4 sharkbite connector to couple the copper ends to 3/4 cpvc pipe (~2-3” in length, then reduce the pipe size to 1/2 cpvc. To do so, you need to cut off the enlarged female end first.

How many square feet will this heat

Asked by Smoke January 23, 2021

Answer

Slant fin 30 baseboard puts out 580 BTU’s per foot when supplied with 180F water at a 1 gallon per minute flow rate. Thus 5 feet would have an output of 2900 BTU’s. There is no set amount of space that 2900 BTU’s will heat. As I am sure you can imagine the same space if located in Alaska is going to need more heat than the same space in Florida. To determine how much heat your space needs you would do a heat loss calculation. Slant fin offers a free application for this. It is available for down load at the Apple or Droid application store. You enter information about the space, such as size, geographic location, construction type, etc. and the program will calculate the amount of heat that space will lose on the coldest hour of the coldest day of the statistical year. So you will know how many BTU’s of capacity you will need to install.

Please clarify what parts are included in ""Fully Assembled""

The product you are asking about is a 5' enclosure with a 5' hyrdonic element inside. I don't know what else you might need as each installation is different. You may need trim accessories, copper fittings etc. You are welcome to give me a call and we can discuss your application. Chris 978 651 3301

I have used these multiple times, about 10 years ago and again just recently. The covers will get cracked paint and rust spots all over them after a couple of years in any damp area such as a bathroom. You will have to repaint or buy new covers. I notice the company sells upgraded covers made of aluminum but they cost about 40% more than the whole heater does. Back then when I purchased these at Home Depot they had everything needed for installation. This time when I purchased, they had a box nearby of the auto air vents you need to use with them but only 2 vents left and very high priced I might add. And they do not carry the brass elbows (actually considered to be Tee's instead of elbows) with the threaded holes needed to accept the air vents. I can't believe the total lack of this item. A search of their website online came up with over 1200 results but no 3/4 brass Tee for this application either. What a waste of my time. Also, Home Depot had literally 6 rows or more of left side end caps for these heaters but not even one row of right side end caps. I was able to search through all the right sided ones and found 1 left side one. I went to my local plumbing supply store and told them I needed a 3/4 brass elbow that had the threaded hole for the air vent for a baseboard heater. The guy said it was actually a Tee since it had 3 holes and went in back and came back with one in about 2 minutes and it was surprisingly cheap. Also, the air vents were cheaper at the plumbing supply store. I should've gone here first and saved myself a lot of wasted time. Next time I do a plumbing project you know where I will start first.
