Bvbasement
I have a ranch style basement, mostly unfinished 28x50 ft. I have a Buderus furnace and I have ran 56 ft of baseboard around the basement. The copper pipe is insulated for the remaining 150 ft. I have been running the zone for 3 days now and can't get the heat past 65 degrees. The outside temperature has been around 30 degrees. Any suggestions on what I can do to get the basement room temperature higher?

Thanks, Jim

It could be an insulation problem. You might have to insulate the walls.

You may be warming the slab and walls and the air will warm slowly.

Check for air leaks too.

I insulated the rim joist and that brought it up a degree. Hope I dont have to insulate the whole basement. I was wondering if I didnt have enough baseboard.

Thanks, Jim
