Kickspace heaters can serve as a space-saving solution in hot water heating systems. They take up a fraction of the space of baseboards or panel radiators, making them ideal for kitchens and bathrooms (or any other area in which baseboard installation is not possible or desirable). Kickspace heaters are usually installed on the ground (often below cabinets), but they can also be mounted on or behind walls with the help of proper surface or recessed mounting cabinets. Fluid from a hydronic system flows through the heaters. An electric blower facilitates heat transfer to the living space and boosts heat output. Diverter tees may be needed to promote sufficient water flow to a kickspace heater branched off from the main baseboard line.
