It’s a real challenge to settle on a single heating plan today, it isn’t like it was back in the early 20th century, when there was easily only several options, and back then, you could choose to have a gas furnace in your basement that operates on fuel like gas or wood; Another pick of the time was the use of a cast-iron radiator, which would circulate boiling-hot water through pipes plus emit heat as a byproduct, finally, technophobes of the time period could choose to go without these “modern” oil furnaces, plus stick with their tried plus true fireplace. I can see why someone would choose a fireplace over these other oil furnaces, as there is no increase in energy consumption by lighting a wood log fire in the fireplace, but today, those same options still exist, but with multiple improvements! One can now buy an electric gas furnace, which uses electricity to power a heat generating system. Additionally, radiators have evolved into a plan that hides in plain sight, plus can be implemented in a lake house using heated flooring, ceiling panels plus more! As for those who prefer the old-fashioned fireplace approach to heating their homes, a single can use what’s known as a “ventless” fireplace, plus utilizes a gas-lit flame to supply warmth, but one should still have the a/c plan set to circulate air, or at least leave a window cracked – otherwise, there’s a big risk for filling the condo with dangerous gases, however with so multiple options today, it’s strenuous to settle on a single heating plan for my home!
