    Excess baseboard also allows greater utilization of thermal storage tanks used with wood, wood pellet, and wood chip boilers. We have found that on average heating days, many homes heat just fine with baseboard supplied by 140-160 F water. Consequently, domestic water heating requirements often become the trigger for starting a boiler and bringing the thermal storage tanks back up to their upper temperature limit.
