If every room of your home feels perfectly comfortable no matter the season, consider yourself lucky. Perhaps your home is newer or contains separate heating and cooling zones sized perfectly and maintained faithfully.
Yet, not all homes – or the people in them – have it so good. Take yours, for example. Are you experiencing cold spots in certain rooms and a surplus of heat elsewhere?
Sometimes even a new heating system doesn’t solve the problem (though it would if we installed it!).
But then you have the option of an added dose of heat, perhaps in an area not covered by your heating system. They’re called toe kickers.
What are toe kick heaters?
As the name implies, toe kick or kick-space heaters are space-saving heaters typically installed at floor level in the space along the bottom edge of kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanities. They can also be installed inside walls or floors to provide supplemental heat to non-cabinet bearing rooms of the house.
There are two types of toe kick heaters. Both draw in cool air and gradually raise its temperature to a pre-set level before delivering warm air to the space. An electric unit heats up coils through electricity while a hydronic unit heats up coils by pumping in water from the boiler or water heater.
What are the benefits of toe kick heaters?
- Because of their modest size, toe kickers can be installed in a room with a challenging layout or one that cannot accommodate a baseboard unit.
- They are designed to be inconspicuous, remaining largely out of sight while they work to provide supplemental heat.
- They deliver cost-effective heating without the need to rework your HVAC system or run portable space heaters.
- Because they don’t need to operate in lockstep with the main HVAC system, toe kick heaters give homeowners precision temperature control everywhere they are in place.
