Runtal Baseboard: Radiant or Convective?
I'm deciding between Runtal UF baseboard (with the fins) and Runtal Wall Panel (also with fins). In certain rooms, baseboard would be more desirable but would be partially blocked by a piano, book case, a few chairs/tables etc....typical living room furniture (No sofa). Runtal's website says their UF baseboard radiators are both radiant and convective. Should I believe them?
Background: I've been told numerous times over the years that RADIANT heating is extremely inefficient when blocked by furniture. If Runtal falls into this category then I would instead go with one of their rectangular wall panels, although less desirable from a design perspective for our tastes.
I'm hoping this question launches a robust debate on convection vs radiant and the effects of furniture on their efficiencies.
