Alternative Heating Solutions
When looking for alternative heating solutions, one type jumps to the front of the heap these days.
Radiant heat once a very costly alternate; out of the reach of most average homeowners has had a significant drop over the last 10 years.
The drop in cost is not the only reason for it's insurgence though; there are now multiple uses and types of installation methods available as well.
Once used only on floors, today radiant heat is also being used under stone tub decks and behind tiled shower walls.
There is the standard hydronic tube type set into mud beds below the floors surface and then there is also the electrical and hydronic panels that contain the radiant heat loops already in them.
These have become very popular with the diy heating and plumbing homeowners because they are easier to install.
Other alternative heating solutions to consider are the Electric Fireplace, Electric Heat Pumps, Wood and Pellet Stoves. Each has its place but are not for everyone. Research them and choose your best option.
If a whole house renovation is in your plans, you may want to consider an HVAC system. This is definitely the best solution to heating and cooling.
