@ August 7, 2006 3:15 PM in Runtal baseboards

Thanks Brad and Rocky for responding to my question about Runtal baseboards. I suppose Rocky, living in the far north, apparently, where 50 below temperatures are not uncommon, must use the 4 tubes (12" height) baseboards. Thank goodness we here in the western suburbs of Philadelphia don't have to face winters like that. Another question: Runtal says that the baseboards should be installed 3 inches above the floor. Traditional fin-tube baseboards are installed directly on the floor - or at least close to the floor. What accounts for the difference in the distance from the floor of the two types? Thanks - Viv

We are considering installing Runtal baseboards in our kitchen and dining room to replace standard fin tube baseboards. The rest of the house, including the living room which is on the same floor as the kitchen and dining room, still have the conventional fin tubes. Will the Runtal system work in conjunction with the existing system? Also, do Runtal baseboards get too hot to touch? I would appreciate any advice you can give me. Viv
