baseboard heat options
Posted by virginia on June 04, 2003 at 14:49:37:
i'm looking for options for running the pipe for baseboard hot water heating in a new second floor installation. the pipes come up to the second floor in the bathroom. i need to run the pipes through both sides of the bathroom to heat the two new bedrooms. my plumber says that i have to have "false baseboards" along the bedroom walls to hide the pipes leading to and from the actual vented baseboard unit. this means that at least half of my baseboards will be covered. i really don't like this idea. what are other less obtrusive ways of running the pipe (without ripping out first floor walls)? i live in new england where pipes have been known to freeze in the winter. thanks.
