5 Important Reasons to Buy a Space Heater, West Plains, Missouri

Space heaters are an affordable, convenient way to heat a home or office space. They can be used as an alternative to a furnace or HVAC system or as a supplementary heat source. Brotherton Propane provides a broad range of services to residential and commercial heating customers in West Plains, MO. Their experienced staff explains some of the benefits of having a space heater. 

5 Benefits of Having a Space Heater 

1. Easy Installation & Maintenance 

Space heaters require little or no installation. Most just plug into the wall. They have fewer components than traditional HVAC systems, which also makes them easy to maintain. Depending on the type of space heater you choose, you may have to occasionally clean it or refill the tank, but generally, maintenance is minimal. 

2. Affordable

HVAC systems and furnaces can be expensive to purchase and install. Space heaters, on the other hand, are usually a fraction of the price. Also, a space heater heats one particular area at a time, meaning you won’t waste energy on empty rooms. 

3. Flexible

Also, they’re an excellent way to provide supplemental heat to individuals sensitive to the cold, like children or seniors. Furthermore, they’re ideal for those in-between seasons, like fall and spring, when it isn’t quite cold enough to turn on the furnace. 

4. Eco-Friendly 

Many furnaces and HVAC systems utilize gas or oil, which are not very environmentally friendly. Space heaters, in contrast, typically use electricity or propane, both of which are sustainable, eco-friendly fuels. Because all or most fuel is directly converted to heat, space heaters are also energy-efficient. 

5. Safe  

Fire hazards used to be a concern with space heaters, but most modern models are designed to power off if they become too hot. Also, most are equipped with tip-over switches which sound an alarm or shut off the device it falls over. When selecting a device, ensure it has these features as well as a flame-resistant exterior.
