Electric baseboards suitable for damp locations?


Recommended Posts

We have a lot of electric heat here. It is not a serious hazard but they could downsize that heater to a 500 or 750 Watt for a bathroom.

A lot of bathrooms have electric baseboard heat and people don't get shocked or burned.

Something else I see here is corrosion on the top of the BB heater from dudes missing the toilet bowl. [:-yuck]

I see that every time there's a baseboard heater near a toilet, but I don't think that it's necessarily from missing the bowl. Plain old splatter will do it. Even without splatter, a lot of toilets create a mist when they're flushed. . .
