Baseboard Heating Replacement Parts

The Home Wizard app calculates your ideal home care program to avoid problems with your Baseboard Heating, but sometimes trouble can still occur. Here are answers to questions about baseboard heating replacement parts.

QUESTION FROM renedye

I manage an apartment complex in Colorado that uses the EXACT same Baseboard Heating System that you have displayed in the pictures on this page of your website: http://www.home-wizard.com/maintenance/baseboardheating.asp

My dilemma is that I need replacement parts for some of the heaters in our building - - and have NO clue as to where to find these parts. I have searched and searched and searched the internet, but the only thing I've been able to come up with are obviously much NEWER versions.

Any suggestions on where I can find what I'm looking for?

Thank you for your time.

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear renedye:

I wish we had gotten your posting two months ago! The house in the picture on the baseboard heating page of our Maintenance Library was completely demolished down to the foundation, and the baseboard heating fixtures were either donated to an inner-city building resource charity, or they we sent to recycling.

But here's a link to a site that has a list of names and contact information for suppliers of baseboard heating fixtures:

http://www.traditional-building.com/article/radside.htm

One thought is that you might want to make a copy of the picture from our Maintenance Library webpage, and then email it to the companies that you talk to from this supplier list. Once they see it they could not only tell you whether they carry this model, but if they don't, they may still recognize it (from being in the business), and could hopefully direct you to the manufacturer who makes it.

Hope this is helpful.

QUESTION FROM carr1818

We are looking for the metal clip that holds the heat louver in place. Our home was built in 1960 and many of our clips are missing. Do you know where we can purchase these and other related parts for these older baseboard heating elements? Thank you for your time.
