1. When we had an electrician look at the heater, we asked him why the heater would have power when the thermostat was turned off and the heaters were not "heating". He said that they always have power and always produce a little heat, something like a pilot light on a gas furnace. It doesn't make sense to me why the heater has a "pilot circuit". Do any of these heaters have such a circuit? I know that the heaters in my office have no power until the thermostat calls for heat.
2. Are baseboard heaters noted for this type of failure and are the other heaters in the building in danger of a similar failure?
Thanks for your assistance on my long winded problem!
