Electric baseboard heaters
Baseboard heaters heat the room by using a process called electric resistance. Located inside baseboard heaters are electric cables, which warm the air that passes through the heater. While the hot air is dispensed from the top of the heater, it is actually sucking the cold air into the bottom. The heater will continue this process until the air entering the bottom of the heater is the same as the thermostat setting. Although they are by no means the most effective form of heating, baseboard heaters do have their advantages — namely that they require little space, need no ductwork and the initial cost is relatively low.
