Alternative Heating Methods

Alternative Heating Methods

With summer wrapping up and the crisp, cool days of autumn on the horizon, it's time to stop thinking about how to keep cool and start planning for how you’ll stay warm. Nothing is more pleasant than a warm, cozy room when the weather outside is less than welcoming, but some homes are better prepared to offer that than others. For homeowners fighting drafts and chills, there are some great alternative heating options out there.

A Cozy Hearth

If truly cold days are rare, and targeted or occasional heating is all that's needed, one picturesque option is a fireplace. Don't despair if your home doesn't come with one; installing a gas fireplace is relatively simple for a professional and doesn't require a pre-existing chimney. Best of all, it adds long term value to the home and can be a very cost-efficient way to warm a room. A ceramic fireplace or a pellet stove are two other great options, and both are attractive as well as practical.

Space Heaters

Space heaters are a great way to warm individual rooms or external areas of your home. Space heaters can be rated for indoor and outdoor use, so make sure you’re buying the correct one for your purposes. Outdoor space heaters that run on gas need to be used only outdoors so they don’t fill your home with toxic fumes that could be hazardous to your health.
