I’ve had such a difficult time finding ways to keep my house warm. I live in a region of the country where we see all four seasons in their utmost glory. This certainly makes for the scenery to have a certain aesthetic appeal, but it also means that there’s a good four-month period of the year where the weather is consistently chilly. Most people around here have a central heating and air conditioning system, which uses an air condenser to create cool air and a furnace or boiler to make warm air. In either case, the HVAC system in place is intended to cool or warm the entire house – not the individual! That’s why space heaters remain so popular, even with the fire, electrical and burn hazards that present themselves with using one. Since I’m terribly paranoid about using a space heater, I decided to do some digging on the internet to see if I could find a friendlier solution to my heating woes, as I constantly feel cold in my bedroom. That’s when I learned about cove heaters, which are mounted at the top of the wall where it meets the ceiling. These things are very inconspicuous, and work like a space heater as they provide directional warmth. Ever since I had a cove heater installed over my bed in the master bedroom, I’ve had no trouble getting a good night’s sleep on the coldest of nights! That’s just the difference between a heating system for the home and a heating system for the person. I don’t use the cove heater all the time, but I find that it’s an ace in the hole for keeping me warm and easing me into sleep. I’m planning to get one for my living room soon, which I’ll have installed just over the couch!
