We had not come across a cottage with baseboard heating in 20 years

The cottage we stayed in last month had baseboard heating set up in it.

We saw this as pretty weird because we had not been inside a place with baseboard heating in at least 20 years or so. It felt quite old to us when we walked in and saw the baseboard heating set up on the walls in the cottage. It was a bit of a surprise, and our boys had no clue what it even was. They began asking us what the things were on the walls and we tried to explain to them that it was an ancient sort of heating plan. Our kids just looked at us oddly. When we turned the baseboard heating on, it started warming up in there fairly hastily and we told them not to touch the heating units because they can get so hot. It was interesting because this led us into a conversation about the history of furnaces inside of the homes in our country and throughout the rest of the world. That was such a weird conversation, but we ended up deciding that we love our high efficiency electric furnace plan at the beach apartment much better than the baseboard heating plan that was at the cottage we were staying in. We’re sure that our high efficiency electric furnace plan costs a fraction of the amount that it would cost to heat our apartment with baseboard heating. We are blissful that we have the genre of heating plan that we do. Baseboard heating would entirely cost so much back home.
