I have a central heating unit, even though I barely use it in the wintertime. Honestly, I am not sure why they install these types of units in our homes because every one of us live in a state with truly mild Winters, as well as every one of us can survive perfectly fine without using the heat in the Winter time months. I must confess every one of us do get some freezing days, but they never last long. So, I barely use our central oil furnace in the Winter time months because I actually think it’s a waste of money. Instead, I depend on our ceiling fan to provide some warmth in our family room. By reversing the blades, I can send the heat down to the floor. I also use a small space heating system on those days when the temperature is frigid outside. Each year, the space heating system saves me money because I avoid turning on the central heater! Over the years, space furnaces have gotten a bad name because they have caused so several fires. But most of the furnaces involved in the fires were old, outdated models. The new furnaces have a few fail safes built in to prevent any concerns with fires. For instance, the heating system that I have has an automatic cut-off switch in case of overheating. It also has a tip-over switch that will turn off the unit if for any reason it tips over. But the best feature of our space heating system is that it has a temperature control which helps it to maintain an ideal temperature control as well as it also helps to save money. All in all, I believe the space heating system is just as enjoyable as the central heating system as well as it is cheaper to operate – you cannot ask for much more.
