Homeowners Guide – Electric Wall Heaters vs Central Heating

If you live in an area that gets even remotely cold, chances are you’re gonna need some kind of heating system in your house. After all, there’s nothing worse than sitting around your house, fingers, and toes freezing while you bundle up in as many layers as possible just to stay warm.

There are 2 options you can choose from when looking to avoid cold winter temperatures. There are basic options like a woodstove or fireplace, however, these get easily dirty, plus require extra time and money chopping up the wood. Although these types of installations might work for some people, others don’t always want to go this route.  

That’s why electric wall heaters and central heating are so popular. To help you better understand what the best heating choice is for your home, let’s have a look at the basics of both central heating and electric wall heaters, shall we?


Central Heating

Central heating is what most people have in their homes, especially newer ones. Central heating systems heat your entire house, raising the overall temperature of your home quickly by pushing out the heat through the various vents spread throughout your home.

Most people use central heating only but suffer from a high energy bill as a result. This is where electric wall heaters come in.



Install an Electric Wall Heater

While electric wall heaters are not the best choice for standalone heating, they can be a great supplement to your normal heating system. See, central heating isn’t perfect. Often times basement rooms, attic rooms, or rooms that are partially or fully detached from the home can be hard to heat.

You could buy a costly space heater, or you could just get an electric wall heater. These systems install directly into a wall of your choice, providing a great boost for rooms that are hard to heat. Bathrooms, garages, and open family rooms are all common areas for people to install wall heaters in.

Wall heaters are very easy to install and they don’t require nearly as much ductwork or effort as central heating installation does. A heating and air conditioning service can typically install them in a few hours.

For many homeowners, the assistance of a Home Heating Repair service isn’t even needed, as they can complete the installation themselves.


A Great Way to Save

If you’re looking for a way to heat those hard to reach areas in your home, or you simply want to lower your energy bill a little bit, electric wall heaters might be for you. Not only are the eco-friendly and cost-effective, but they’re also super easy to install and can have every member of your family enjoying a comfortable temperature no matter what part of the house they dwell in.
