How to Install Electric Baseboard Heater Covers
Installation of Electric Baseboard Heater Cover Kit
Step 1: Remove Front Panel (Optional)
Step 2: Place Wall Brackets
Creating space around your electric baseboard heater is important. Our Electric Baseboard Cover Kit is designed to sit 9-1/2 inches from the finished floor to the top of the cover. To achieve this height, wall brackets (included with Kit) need to be attached to the wall for the cover to be installed.
Note: The cover is designed to have a ¾ inch gap between the floor and the bottom of the cover for unrestricted air intake. A portion of the electric heater may be visible from underneath the cover.
Step 2.1: Ensure the wall behind the baseboard heater is patched and painted up to 10” above the finished floor.
Step 2.2: Locate the nearest stud (or some solid material behind the sheetrock) at both ends of the heater.
Step 2.3: To make the job easy, locate and drill a pilot hole a minimum of 9″ above the finished floor.
Step 2.4: Using the screws provided, secure one wall bracket at each end of the heater. A 6’ panel will need a wall bracket in the middle, as shown in the image.
Step 2.5: There will be a thin gap between the wall bracket and the wall. This is intentional. This gap will receive the lip on the back side of the Baseboarders® panel.
