I am in the process of finishing my basement approx, 800sq ft. one side above grade with three double windows and one double door. I am considering putting in electric baseboard heat, how much would I need? I was considering 3 six foot sections(4,500watts), one under each window is that sufficient? Also I am hearing about hydronic heat...which is better...
Another concern I have is air conditioning. I have already check my existing system and found it to be sized for the upper two floors and cutting into existing duct work may be too much of a burden on my existing system. Would it hurt my existing system to just cut into the return air duct, that way I can keep air circulating down there. Because the space in below grade in the front and sloping down on the sides temperatures stay fairly constant.
