I live on Long Island, about 2 miles from the water so it can get a bit chilly during the Fall and Winter months. My oil for my house is at a capped rate of $3.00 per gallon. Like the rest of us, trying to save a few bucks if possible. I have a splanch style house with 3-zone heating and a programmed thermostat for the main section (first floor) of the house.
I am looking to purchase an in-room heating unit that will keep the living room area warm so I do not have to turn on or raise the thermostat like I must do in order to keep warm. The area I am looking to heat is approximately 25' x 30' or 750 square feet with standard ceiling height.
Budgets are tights but for the right unit I am willing to spend several hundred dollars IF it works. In the past I tried a few of the forced air type space heaters but they did absolutely nothing unless I was sitting 6 inches away from it. I am not that handy and do not want to install anything permanently into my home since we maybe selling within the next 6-9-12 months.
Any advice, suggestions, websites would be greatly appreciated.
