We’ve talked about the difference between baseboard and wall heaters before. Fact of the matter is, in most situations, we’ll recommend you get a wall heater over a baseboard.

How to set a mechanical thermostat

Want to learn how to set a knob-style (a.k.a. mechanical or bi-metal) thermostat to use with electric baseboard or wall heaters? The video above has you covered.

To set the thermostat, move it all the way to the right. When you feel comfortable in the room, slowly turn the dial back to the left until you hear a click then stop turning the dial. The thermostat will then keep your room at its current temperature.

If you’re looking for something a little more straight-forward, you may want to consider upgrading to an electronic thermostat. Read more on the difference between mechanical and electronic thermostats.
