Is it safe to dry clothes on radiator? 'Yes – drying_clothes on radiators makes your boiler work harder than it needs to. This is because the clothes can prevent heat from being released, so your boiler uses more energy (and money) to keep the whole room warm.'The extra moisture in the air also means that it takes more energy to heat the whole room.

Which is better baseboard or radiators? As their name implies, radiators deliver heat in the form of radiant energy. In other words, the energy from a radiator travels through the air without heating the air until it strikes a solid object. Baseboard convectors, astheir name implies, convey heat from hot water to air by means of convection.
