What makes Synergy Low Temperature Baseboard different from my current baseboard?
Synergy baseboard is specially designed for use with today's modulating condensing boilers. Synergy baseboard provides increased outputs over standard baseboard using reduced supply water temperatures. Reducing supply and return water temperatures to levels consistent with condensing boilers allows hydronic heating systems to perform at their peak.
Standard baseboard installations use 180º supply water which puts even the highest efficiency condensing boilers in the mid to upper 80% for performance efficiencies.
Lowering the supply water temperature to 140º while still providing similar outputs allows boilers to operate at their maximum condensing efficiencies of over 92% saving considerable energy dollars and maximizing your investment.
Are there any special considerations to be aware of when installing Synergy Low Temperature Baseboard?
Absolutely not. Synergy Low Temperature Baseboard is designed to be installed just like traditional baseboard. No extra piping, no special tools...nothing extra.
Please see our brief installation video for our Elegance Baseboard as a reference.
DesignLine recommends that all of our high efficiency products be installed by a licensed professional.
