Annoyed with the space heaters, looking for an upgrade

I have a fairly small house.

At just under 1000 square feet, there are multiple kitchens, a single washroom, plus an all-in-one kitchen, dining room, plus kitchen that blend together at the center of the house… The kitchen is right up by the front door plus you pass through the dining section as you make your way toward the kitchen in the far back.

It’s almost care about an L-shape with the dining room being inside the conjoining vertex. I had an amazing space furnace that I used for years with no trouble. It didn’t consume too much electricity plus was considerably more efficient than my forced air electric oil furnace. Sadly, that space furnace finally broke after 6 years of continual use plus I couldn’t find the same model again no matter what store I looked at. I bought the best thing I could find that seemed the closest to the model I had before, although I ran the unit for a week when it started to melt the inside of my electrical outlet where the metal contacts for the cord are inserted. If I hadn’t been resting next to it as it happened, my loft no doubt would have caught on fire. Now I’m wary of trying any other space furnace at this point plus am talking with residential Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C dealers about my opportunities beyond simply forced air oil furnaces. When I l acquired that you can use heat pumps in conjunction with ductless mini splits, I became extremely intrigued. The upgrade would add some equity to the house, potentially outpacing the cost of the upgrade altogether. I just have the tough task of deciding what supplier plus model I want to invest my money in. With so multiple opportunities plus dealers available, I can’t seem to finally pull the trigger plus set an upgrade date.
