Preparing for the winter season should not be left until the last moment. Taking the time to make informed decisions means you won’t get any surprises with your winter comfort, or with your monthly electricity bill.

Are you looking for an alternative heating solution with low running costs, able to quickly warm up a room to the desired comfort level?

When it comes to modern heating appliances, there are plenty options to choose from. Here we will look at the options available to heat your home this winter.

  • Electric heaters may do the job for smaller rooms but using them regularly will increase your electricity bill substantially.
  • Gas heaters are a cheaper choice, but they release fumes and create moisture. They are also a fire risk if not properly maintained.
  • Using wood for heating is expensive and furthermore, eco compliance regulations are getting stricter. Burning wood releases harmful fumes.
  • Far-infrared heat panels are the latest breakthrough in winter heating appliances. Infrared heaters warm objects and not the air in the room.
