If you haven’t, be grateful. If you have, you’ll understand the need for having back-up heat. Brrrrr There’s also nothing quite like looking at a fireplace when it’s snowing. I think that the glow of the flames contributes to the warmth, whether it’s a gas fireplace or wood.
If you are looking for a way to reduce your fuel bills, gas wall heaters can help. If you can use a natural gas fireplace to keep your main room warm, then you can lower the thermostat, rather than heating the rooms you don’t use. You can get products that run on natural gas that is piped to your home, run on a tank of propane, or ones that are electric.
While most of these heaters require professional installation, they don’t need venting, so installation shouldn’t be all that labor intensive. If you’re in a house that doesn’t have the ability to be vented for a wood stove, indoor heaters can bring you the warmth of a wood stove (and the safety of having back-up heat) without the venting. I know I’ve got my eye on one, as I type this with a fleece blanket and fingerless gloves on so we can cut down on fuel bills!
