I am in the process of buying my
first home. The sellers installed a new electric baseboard heater last week, and
during my walk-thru this weekend I noticed that the wall above this heater seems very hot. I have no experience with this type of heating, and don't know if this is normal or not? Is it? The wall was not warm, but pretty hot. I turned down the thermostat as a precaution. Any advice? It is a brand new unit.

I have the same issue and have wondered the same. It is a new baseboard heater, and I noticed the drywall above the heater becomes very hot, almost to hot to hold your hand against wall comfortably.
