What's a overtime sensor? If I have a noisy heater I replace it. Most times it's the 8 footers that make noise. I try to stay away from them.Redland said:I have electric baseboard heaters throughout my house, since installing them 5 years ago I have had to replace 2 of my overtime sensors, as well two of them seem to constantly make this creaking sound, does anyone have any idea how to remedy this?
I have had them make noise right out of the box. Replaced them and send back to the SH. In fact, when I am putting in baseboards, I order double and send back what I don't need. This is because I've had so many problems.Redland said:Sorry over temp sensor, and yes I have a 6 foot one the is making noise, is it just the expanding and contracting of the metal, so your solution is to just replace it?
You're wasting your time. If it doesn't make noise straight out of the box, it will a month later.I have had them make noise right out of the box. Replaced them and send back to the SH.

Do it. I did it to my entire 1st floor which is on a slab. All electric underfloor radiant on top of 3/4" rigid foam, under a floating wood laminate floor. Also in the mud under the bathroom and mudroom ceramic tiles. All sheetrock stripped and exterior walls spray-foam insulated. All Anderson windows and thermopane exterior doors. The heated floors are fantastic floor-temperature sensing t-stats turned the entire 1st floor from the coldest to the warmest. Even at .18 per Kwh, it's cheaper than natural gas!You want quiet, get in floor radiant electric. My next house I'm doing that everywhere. In combination with a passive house type construction. Seal it up tight, insulate like crazy and it'll hardly take any heat to keep it warm.
