Electric Baseboard Heat and Stained Walls

Posted by Kim on November 15th, 1998 03:25 AM

Hey there. The electric baseboard heat in my home stains the walls, directly above the heaters. I try to scrub this off but mostly meet with failure. What is the cause of this? Is the heat "burning" the walls? What is the marking caused by? How can it be avoided, or how can I clean it successfully? I have no doubt that the cheapest baseboard heaters available were installed here. Would more expensive models resolve this problem?

Also, where there are two baseboard heaters operated by a single thermostat, is it possible to disconnect one of the heaters so that only one of them operates? My furniture arrangement options are quite limited because of these heaters; disconnecting just one of them in my living room would help a lot.
