I live in a warmer climate, and typically only need to heat my home a couple of months out of the year.

I have tried a multitude of options every year to keep warm, one of my favorites being an electric blanket.

Electric blankets can be nice, however they tend to pose great risks. The electrical chords that power an electric blanket are prone to fraying and damage while you sleep, potentially causing serious injury or fire. Portable electric space heaters are a decent temporary fix, but they are incredibly inefficient. Other types of space heaters may use flammable liquids that can also emit harmful toxic exhaust. This is why a properly working central heating system is the best, most efficient option for heating your home in the winter. An efficient central heating system will circulate warm air throughout your home, with minimal effort or energy required. It is important to keep your central HVAC system well maintained, which is why I schedule regular maintenance with my local HVAC provider, ensuring that no problems sneak up on me, and I am able to get repairs at the first sign of a problem. Contact your local HVAC provider today to make sure that your system is running as efficiently as possible. A licensed HVAC professional will be able to visit your house at the interval you decide, and they will be able to inspect your system for any red flags, helping to take care of small problems before they become bigger issues, making sure that you aren’t stuck without a heater in the winter or worse, outrageous repair bills.
