I bought an old home with lots of baseboard heating elements (approx 800ft of heating pipe). The problem is that most of the heating fins are broken or all together missing. When I bought the house I thought it was going to be a cheap , quick fix that I could do myself. The only thing I can find is the entire base and it cost a hundred bucks. I don't have $13,000 to buy new heaters let alone have them installed. The heat works, its those nasty little fins that are keeping my home from really warming up. Is there another option for me?

Thanks
