The most popular form of electrical heating in Quebec is the traditional baseboard heater. An electric baseboard heater works by generating heat from the ground up. They are often placed under a window and/or on exterior walls (known in the industry as a “cold wall”) and slightly raised from floor level. By heating the air nearest the coldest parts of the home, the heat is carried into the center of the room by air currents, and quickly brings the room to a comfortable temperature. Electrika carries a large range of electrical baseboard heaters, ranging from 500-2500 watts of heat per device. A significant advantage of baseboard heaters is that they allow for independently heated rooms. Electrical heating this way directly translates to savings on your utilities, as rooms used less often can be kept cooler, unlike with central heating. As well, aside from basic household cleaning, such as dusting every other week, electrical baseboard heaters are mostly maintenance free.
Electric heated floors are the ultimate in home comfort. They release gentle, enveloping heat that surrounds you and the room in a blanket of perfect comfort. Underfloor heating works with a variety of floor coverings, making each installation a unique, individual solution to give your home that custom touch. As well, underfloor heating is almost entirely maintenance free, and like baseboard heaters, allow for per-room control.
Electrical convection heaters are the most efficient heaters Electrika carries. Operating on the scientific laws of convection, they operate by taking in cold air through the bottom grill of the heater, which then comes in to contact with one or many heating elements. As the air is heated, it rises through the top grill of the electrical convection heater, providing warmth in the room from the top down, quickly, quietly, silently. As well, convection heating has the advantage of not drying out the air in your home.
Where many homes in Montreal are still using bi-metal thermostats, many are upgrading to electronic thermostats. They offer more precision regulation over conventional thermostats, leading to a direct impact on your utility bills. As well, electronic thermostats continuously monitor the ambient temperature of the room which allows you to maintain a constant, comfortable temperature. Electrika carries models that even allow for programmable temperatures in each room for certain times of the day. Hydro Quebec currently offers a rebate on replacing your conventional bi-metal thermostats to electronic.
