Warming Up The Cold Spaces In Your Home

Posted on: 9 January 2019

Do you have areas of your home that just don't stay very warm during the winter? In many older homes, there are some rooms that just don't get enough heat to warm up to the temperatures that other areas do. Here, you'll find a few tips that can help you warm up those difficult spaces.

Warming up Bathrooms

Nobody enjoys getting out of a hot bath and having to dry off in a freezing cold bathroom. Warming up a small space like the bathroom shouldn't be too difficult, but you do have to worry about using basic electric space heaters in a room where so much water is used.

One easy and affordable option is to use a heat lamp in the ceiling to warm up the space when you're bathing. One thing to be aware of before you go screwing a heat lamp bulb into the ceiling fixture is that you may need to install a new fixture that will handle the heat without any concern of fire starting.

Another option for the bathroom is to install a small wall-hanging unit. As long as you can keep an electric space heater up away from the water, it should be safe for you to use. There are small radiant heaters that you can simply bolt onto the wall with little concern of safety issues.

Bedrooms and Living Spaces

Bedroom and living spaces allow for a lot more options than the bathrooms. Before you make any long-term decisions, think about how comfortable the space stays during the summer – do you need air conditioning in the space as well as heat?

If you are looking for something to cool and warm the space, it's time to consider a mini-split ductless unit. These units mount onto the walls and produce either heat or cool air. They are efficient and can be installed in just about any room of the house with ease.

Short-term options include a variety of space heaters – you can choose from kerosene or electric. Kerosene are great for warming large spaces. Electric heaters are much easier to use, but they do not heat things up as efficiently as the kerosene heaters will.

If you haven't done so already, you should have your local heater professional to find out if the furnace heating your home is in need of replacement. Maybe, the space heaters can be avoided by upgrading the furnace with a new, improved model. Contact a heating installation service for more help.


Making Your Customers Comfortable

Starting a business is a monumental accomplishment. My mom and I have talked about opening a restaurant in the past. However, we haven’t ever worked up enough courage to turn our dreams into a reality. I admire anyone who has the nerve to risk financial security in order to become an entrepreneur. I do know, however, that if you’re beginning a new business establishment, one of your goals should be to make your customers comfortable as they shop around. You don't want them to get too hot, or too cold. Depending on where you live, this objective might be especially important during the hot summer months.
