Using an alternate form of heating

Through using a portable space heating system for many years as our alternate form of heating in our home I have found out different things about using the heating portable unit, some good and some bad.

The first thing about space heaters is that they are really good, and I’m sure you already know this even though I am going to say it anyway.

The fact that with using a portable space heating system over central heating you will save a ton of cash on energy use. Now for one of the not so great things I have noticed about using portable space heaters. When you use a portable space heating too much, the air quality in your home gets a bit on the dry side. When I use the heater a lot and the central heating less I notice that my eyes will get dry. Sometimes I will even get a sore throat because the air gets so dry. This is one of the biggest disadvantages on space heating. It doesn’t have an air filter either, so your air quality won’t be as good. I’m not a certified HVAC specialist, so I am not sure if I am speaking out of my back side here or not but this is just my personal findings from using a space heating unit for multiple years. I still use my heater quite a bit, just not as much as I used to.
