Baseboard was easy to install and looks great on the wall, the finish is really well done. I did my whole house with these and they really work nice. However I would not buy these again for the simple reason that Slant/Fin can't seem to package their product so the heating elements fins don't get damaged. I know it won't effect the heater much, but if I was installing them for a customer they would think I damaged them.

Comments about 4 ft. Multi/Pak 83A Baseboard:

These are really well built. So much so that it is best to pre-drill the mounting holes. Also, if you look at the $/BTU/linear foot, they really don't cost much more than the cheaper ones. I saw some reviews with comments about damage. They must have addressed that issue. These come really well packaged. And of course, the service is top-notch!

  • 2 ft. Multi/Pak 83A Baseboard

    Q:

    The engineering data stipulates the bottom of the 83a Multi Pak with the H-3 element should be installed 4" from the finished floor. Is this accurate? Can it be installed closer to the finished floor?

      A:

      I don't see why not. There's no moving parts. The exchanger is copper and
      aluminum I think. The cover is painted steel. Worst case the cover
      rusts? I'd be most concerned about insects and small rodents building
      nests inside and blocking the airflow. Maybe you could cover it in fine
      meshed hardware cloth (like chicken wire but much finer mesh), or raise
      snakes in the crawl space? :)

    I currently have regular slant fin baseboard with 3/4" copper. Can I just remove the slant fin and replace it with the multi/pak 83a and get more heat. The water temp is about 190 degrees

      A:

      Probably yes. Check the output of your current units, and match that against the output of the 83A units (BTUH per foot for each). If you don't know what type units you have then measure the size of the fins, count the number of fins per inch, go to the Slant-Fin website and look for a unit that has the same fin size and count as your existing, and then match that against the output of the 83A units.

      Yes you should. Alternatively you can add some more radiator into the
      existing runs. Check out the datasheets at slantfin to get the btu per
      foot outputs

      Sorry, I can't honestly answer that, if your old fins are dirty & damaged I would say yes but other than that I couldn't tell you if it would, however if you want more heat install more per baseboard in the room

      My heating system is all 3/4". I upgraded in a couple of rooms to the high output in order to reduce the footage and gain more wall space in one room and to get a bit more heat into another room. I stayede with all 3/4". Used PEX and Sharkbite fittings where sweating was almost impossible. On the PEX: make sure it's heating grade, not plumbing grade.

      i would run 3/4" for the whole system, if you restricted as you say , some people my think that you would keep the hot water in the pipe longer hence more heat , but in reality it will also be longer to get back to furnace , you want to keep a constant flow for more efficient heating , i use copper pipe w/shark bite fittings hope this helps you

      Please see the installation manual:
      http://s3.pexsupply.com/manuals/***.****43/37342_PROD_FILE.pdf
      The heating elements are soldered together. One side of the heating
      element is flared into a copper female socket for soldering. The other is
      regular copper pipe. Please see page 10 of the manual.
      If you are asking about connecting the covers to one another, you will need
      splicing pieces available from PexSupply. Please see pages 12 and 13 of
      the manual to understand how they work.

      Splice plates, which can be used to cover the connections between covers, are included with Multi/Pak 80 Series baseboards that are 5-feet and longer. They can be purchased separately for shorter units as part 103432000. To cover larger gaps, you can use 7" (part 103416000) or 14" (part 103415000) filler sleeves.

    Q:

    Just to be clear, the 4ft. multi/pak 83A baseboard does come with the heat element? All I would have to purchase additionally for this to be fully assembled are the end caps correct? But besides the end caps the mulit/pak comes with everything else that it needs to provide heat efficiently once connected?

      1.75" from the finished wall is where the center of the hole should be.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I can't remember the figures, but it should be clear from the drawings
      included in the spec. for the base board. It is somewhat flexible, as the
      housing is not rigidly coupled to the heat exchanger. The spec should
      indicate the tolerances.
      Or... just lay a unit up against the wall, and wiggle the end of the heat
      exchanger around, and you can measure the range of clearance that will work.

      1" off the wall should be fine if you are using 3/4" pex.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      It is an 1 9/16" to center of the pipe from the face of the wall for a floor hole. It is 3 1/2" from the finished floor to center on the wall penitration. All holes must be at least a 1/2" bigger than the outside diameter of the pipe you are using. If you are using pex, this is especially critical. Avoid contact of the pex to any sub floor or structure. If there is contact, you will hear creaking as the tube gets hot an cools down. We recommend all penitrations be piped in copper and the pex connection is made below the floor system or within the wall so that expansion and contraction is not an issue and is properly compensated for.

      Even though the baseboards are named "Multi/Pak," they only include a single baseboard. The name comes from the fact that they work with multiple elements.
