Every property system, electrical or otherwise, eventually experiences some sort of breakdown or failure due to normal conditions. The faster and more accurately you can diagnose the problem, the less costly it will be to repair. Here’s another Squires Electric troubleshooting tip.
What size electric heater is needed when upgrading or replacing a heater? We get that question pretty often, so here are a few guidelines for choosing.
The output of fixed electric heat like in-wall or baseboard heaters are measured in watts and the wattage needs depend on room size. A standard 10’ x 10’ bedroom with an 8’ ceiling requires a 750-watt heater, but 1,000 watts is usually preferred because it heats much quicker. A 20’ x 20’ living room with an 8’ ceiling calls for a minimum 3,000-watt heater, but most would prefer a 4,000-watt heater due to the size of the room.
