It can be quite a task to find the right electronic heaters for your home, as there is no shortage of home heaters on the market. Some of the key factors that you must consider when choosing a heating system is the type of fuel and the level of consumption that you anticipate. This also feeds into the most important consideration which is that of your budget – how much you are willing to spend.
There is a wide variety of home heating options, and we go into some of them here:
- Under Floor Heating – This form of heating was long considered to be somewhat of a luxury, under floor heating is a great way to heat your home, in that it is non-intrusive and has the beautiful feeling of warmth under foot. It is especially welcoming in a bathroom, where the days of stepping out onto a freezing floor are long gone.
- Electric Heating – This refers to both radiators and fan heaters, which are generally either mountable on walls or portable, allowing you to focus the heating on the exact area of the house required. This is probably the cheapest form of heating in that it doesn’t require installation and the costs associated with that.
- Wood Fire Heating – When it comes to wood fire heating we would strongly recommend looking at stoves rather than open fires, as the efficiency and fuel consumption saved negates the original high costs of setting up and installing. There are many top brands available and it is beyond the scope of this article to go into it in more detail.
- Gas Heating – This has become popular in recent years due to the relative cheapness of gas as opposed to electricity, and has started to replace many oil based central heating systems for market share. With the ability to heat an entire property on a gas heating system, this is definitely a good starting point for any long term heating plans.
As with everything, there are pros and cons to all of the heaters above. As this site is primarily about Plinth Heater we may be biased towards that form, but in reality it is about what form of heating system suits your needs. We encourage you to audit the specs and needs of your home and base your decision on that.
