I have tried this product and very unhappy with the results. No convection, only radiant heat. Need to run high water temp to get any heat output and this defeats the purpose of outdoor rest. Replaced it with Runtal and all is well.

    I am looking for a "Baseboard" or panel that is 5" high or less. Because of the wooden baseboard's height, I'm forced to search for a heating element that is the same height or less. It's a hot water system in an old, yet small house. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

    Runtal has their VLX7/7 that is 2-3/4" high and when you mount it with fittings is about 5" high, it also comes in 8 standard colors.
    I have two jobs that we are installing them in the cabinet toe kick in areas with little or no wall space.

    Thanks, guys. But how do you LIKE its heat? Does this baseboard actually work as well as they claim? Looks nice, but does it work as well as it looks? And what heating source are you using to heat it? Heck yes, I'm interested.

    Thanks, I do like Runtel. In fact, they were my next call. But I knew someone had mentioned another type, possibly from Canada. So I had to try asking you folks. Thanks for the fast imput.

    I love it! I used to have scorched air, then hydro air. Always drafty and dusty and temperature swings. I've had this baseboard since about'95. I had a W/M 368 and it was ok. A little [ok a lot] of creaking and ticking from expansion and contraction on on/off cycles.

    Since '00 I've had it on a Viessmann Vitola with outdoor reset and constant circ. No drafts, no noise, just pure enjoyment. You don't even think about, you are just comfortable.

    It is not for every one or every application but I like it.
