Baseboard Heater Planning Tips

4. Where To Mount Baseboard Thermostats

Baseboard thermostats can be mounted on the baseboard heater or on a wall within the room.  Never place the thermostat directly above the heater or it will not function properly.  You see, the heater will come on, warm the air, the thermostat will turn off the heater till the air cools, and the cycle will start over again.  Instead, locate the wall thermostat on an interior wall so the heat will have time to cover the area of the house before the thermostat turns the heater off.
