Here’s the first snow of the year, and many people are already asking, “What should I do about heating this winter?” As with any situation, there are a few options available for all households. Let’s take a look at the different options that the Sparks area has to offer this winter.
1. Electric Toe-Kick Heaters
This is the most economical option, so you might want to take advantage of this. If you are on a budget, electric toe-kick heaters are probably your best bet. One of the main advantages to these is that they will last for decades if your home doesn’t use a lot of power or if you have a small house. The electric toe-kick heaters start at $125, and most people will tell you they last around seven years before needing replacement.
2. Duct-Booster Fans
If you need duct-booster fans, Gibson Plumbing & Mechanical can help! We offer the duct-booster fan, an electric heating ventilator that can warm up to 20,000 cubic feet of air. This unit even has a remote control that will allow you to turn it on and off from your office or bedroom.
3. Electric Floor Heat
Electric floor heaters are a good option because you can control the amount of heat in your room. These units come in various lengths and outputs and get installed in varying areas of your home. They also can turn them off if it gets too cold, which is a great feature when you need to go to work or out on the town.
The most common type of whole-home heat is a furnace, which you will have the ability to control from a thermostat. This can be a great option because it provides a comfortable amount of heat to any area of your home. It may seem expensive, but this option will last for decades and even pay itself off once or twice over with savings on your utility bills.
