Heating a beach house with high ceilings

High ceilings may be a desired feature in new homes, however they come with a price, which shows up on your quarterly heating bill.

  • Because heat rises, homeowners often run into issues of maintaining consistent heat throughout a high ceiling room.

But simply cranking up the heat isn’tan effective solution if that “extra” heat just keeps rising! Don’t worry, because there are some things that can fix that problem, but if you do not already have ceiling fans, start by installing one or more, depending on the size of the room, however conventional advice is to run ceiling fans in reverse in the Winter time to help push the warmer air that’s risen back down into a room. If ceiling fans alone aren’t solving your heating issue, consider adding ceiling fan heaters. These are small heating systems that are installed just under the fan itself plus deliver more warm air for the fans running in reverse to direct downward. Adding electric heating systems to a room is a time inspected solution plus may work well for a smaller room. But in a greater space, electric heating systems can rack up the costs. If you still are experiencing a high ceiling living area that your forced air proposal just isn’tkeeping at the comfortable temperature you like, then consider installing radiant floor heating. A radiant floor proposal will deliver heat evenly throughout a room by heating the floor first. They also might chop down on your energy bills, which is a plus. If you are considering a radiant system, you will want to consult with an Heating as well as Air Conditioning professional to determine what option to choose. A professional will be able to assess if you just need coverage in one or several rooms, or if you could be a candidate for a whole loft system. They can recommend the most efficient type of proposal for your home, so you can live in an evenly dispersed comfortable temperature plus not have to chop the bank to get it.
