Large Radiator With Water


Baseboard units can also be used with a boiler as discussed by Prime Boilers. Instead of filling a large radiator with water, baseboard units use a pipe with dozens of thin metal fins attached to the pipe. The fins heat up the air between the fins and the hot air rises out of the baseboard unit. While radiators mostly "radiate" heat, baseboard units "convect" heat meaning radiators heat objects in the room while baseboard units heat the air. It's a minor difference but the heat feels a little different so it's worth mentioning. Finally, radiant, or in-floor heat, can be used in a hot water system. The terminology gets confusing because cast iron radiators create "radiant heat" but radiant heat is now a term for in-floor heat. Confusion aside (maybe??), radiant heat is created by running hot water through pipes that are embedded in concrete or a similar material.
