Baseboard heaters

I read a couple comments about merits of electric baseboards and decided to install a couple. We had one in our previous TT and enjoyed the quiet, free heat which was just enough to knock the chill off on a cool night.

These were cheap and easy to install and with the optional thermostats are very convenient. The small one under the dinette is 500W and the one in the bedroom is 1000W.

I've considered those.

For the dinette I would be concerned about fire safety when the dinette is converted to a bed.

For the bedroom I would be concerned about fire safety due to the likelihood of clothing or linens being draped over the baseboard heater.

Yeah, I hear you. We never use our dinette as a bed. If we did, I don't think I'd use that one. As for the one in the bedroom, I think I can keep the clothes away.

That looks like a GREAT idea for my cold feet under the dinette. Is that where the 500W one went? Did you mount the thermostat above in easy reach?

The 500W is the one under the dinet. The thermostat is at the end away from the wall. They also have thermostats that can be remote mounted. I just wanted to keep it simple.
