If you’re looking for ways to keep your basement sufficiently warm, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, new air conditioning and heating installation contractor R.A. Biel Plumbing & Heating, Inc. takes a look at the best heating options that will actually make your basement warm and cozy.
In addition to being a reliable source of heat, fireplaces can also improve your basement in terms of aesthetics. Fireplaces are fairly easy to install. Your options include a traditional masonry fireplace, which is ideal if your basement is fairly spacious. There are also prefabricated fireplaces that are easier and cost less to install. You can even choose an infrared fireplace that can provide heat that feels just like the real thing.
You don’t need a new heating system installation to provide adequate heat to your basement. If your home’s heating system utilizes ductwork, you can take advantage of this feature by extending the existing ductwork down to your basement. It’s important to note that you should only rely on a professional HVAC contractor for this, since the job requires heat load calculation and ductwork configuration. It goes without saying that this won’t apply if your home utilizes ductless heating methods.
Electric Baseboard Heaters
This option works well if you don’t mind the unwieldy look of baseboard heaters, which are prominent-looking metal units that run the length of your wall’s baseboards. Electric baseboard heaters provide heat in specific areas, and can be controlled using its own thermostat. It can even be completely powered on or shut off as necessary.
