The fireplace comes in many options, including wood-burning or electric, and they all have their own set of benefits and drawbacks.

The electric ones are not traditionally energy-efficient, but they are more popular because they are practical.

Wood, coal, and propane all pose different benefits and costs depending on the material you use to burn, so doing some research on these is recommended.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a popular method because they transfer heat from one place to another to keep the home comfortable. The function by absorbing heat energy from the air outside of the house, which is then transferred indoors.

Space Heaters

Space heaters are intended for smaller areas and used for shorter periods. They are not designed to heat a whole house and can end up costing more in the utility bills if it's not the appropriate size for the area.


Furnaces are designed to provide heat to a large space. The furnace installation is traditionally ducted through the home and can be streamlined to reach any room you want to keep warm. They are incredibly reliable even when the temperature is freezing outside, and you can get them in electric, gas, oil, and natural gas.

Hybrid Options

One of the more popular options is to combine a furnace with a heat pump. Having both allows for each one to support the other without disrupting the internal temperature of the home.

On top of this, you could also add in a smart thermostat that takes all the trouble out of keeping the room program to the most comfortable temperature.
