How to find the wattage of an old baseboard heater?

\015 I have an old 60'' baseboard heater from the mid to late 1980's that some idiot painted over everything on (Including the elements!). Seeing as this is most definatly 'not safe' I want to replace it, but am unable to figure out it's wattage, make, or model. The room it is heating is approx. 110 sq ft.\015

I would like to know how your new baseboard heaters compare with an old baseboard heater I need to replace. How much more energy effecientis your product than an old unit(s) my grandfather put into his apartments in 1968? How much can I save per month on my electric bill? 10%, 40%, or what ?

I just purchased a home built in 1981 - it has intertherm heaters thru-out - 3-in floor models, 2-in wall (little - bathrooms), and 6 baseboard EBH - the little ones in the baths do not work at all - can not find parts for thermastats, and the baseboard ones all have the knob on side of units with OFF - 1-5 - no matter what number you set it on, you are blown away by the heat - can not control the heat - and can not find any replacement parts.

Have an old Rinnai Gas Heater (approximately 30 years old) still working well, but we had to turn off the gas, and now cannot turn it on again. We have two buttons, one below the other, one is red and say On, the other is black. We also have an ignition button at the side.

My Carrier thermostat keeps running my heater. I adjusted the temp lower but it didn't stop running. I changed the mode to off and then it stopped.
