Hot Water Baseboard heating

--WebTV-Mail-32759-6977 Content-Type: Text/Plain; Charset=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7Bit
I did a search and still couldnt find an answer. Question On the hot water baseboard heating units--is there any chance of a fire hazard if you have curtains hanging over and on the baseboard units? This material is flimy material. If not a fire hazard wouldn't it be a hinderance in the heating unit for the heat to get through and do it's job? When I wanted to put the material up higher I was told there was no way it was a hazard but I can't see that there wouldn't be some reason not to do it. Any answers would sure be appreciated. Just to set my mind at ease.
Inquiring minds want and need to know LOL

If it were electric baseboard heat you'd definitely have a fire hazard, but the low temperature of hydronic baseboard is not a fire hazard

No, there is no fire hazard Yes, it will impede air flow and lessen the heating ability
