Make Your Home Cozier with Spot Heating Solutions

By Allison Halliday | December 12, 2016

Some homes or spaces no matter how well you try to heat them can end up with cold spots. If this is the case then Marley Engineered Products suggests using spot heating options.

Cold spots can develop if certain areas of your home were overlooked when the HVAC system was installed and this could be the case if you have recently extended your home. According to a heating contractor, there are a number of spot heating solutions available that can also provide heat for potential HVAC system failures. Other solutions are designed to provide permanent heat. These may be suitable where HVAC ducting isn’t a cost-effective option. Examples of where spot heating solutions can be useful include outdoor concession stands, factory assembly lines, shipping and receiving docks, alfresco dining and plenum spaces, which are the gaps between a structural ceiling in the drop-down ceiling. Spot heating may also be a good solution for rooms that receive less sunlight or which are located far from the HVAC system, such as home extensions, basements, and attics, or sunrooms. You may get in touch with a local heating service contractor to explore your options in heating your home.

There are three different types of heaters that have been specifically developed for spot heating. The first are plenum rated heaters. These are designed for supplemental or for primary indoor heating and tend to be used in sunrooms or three season rooms, or for heating in home extension areas such as attics. It’s worth considering plenum rated heaters to protect pipes that could potentially freeze, or to install them in parking garages. Plenum rated heating system installation is also possible in zero clearance areas such as ceilings and may be branched out for even distribution of heat.

Utility well house/pump house heaters are ideal for providing supplemental heat in utility areas. This includes small and remote stand-alone buildings such as pump houses. These types of heaters work well in areas where you don’t want to add additional electrical lines, ductwork or piping. They consist of compact convection heaters that are tamperproof and durable, and which are extremely low maintenance. The heaters are designed to work within a range of voltages and provide supplemental heat for freeze protection or for additional comfort.

Radiant or infrared heaters are ideal for covered outdoor locations and must be installed by professional heating contractors. Typical applications include sports arenas as they provide uniform, zonal spot heating, and snowmelt. Radiant heaters are designed to warn people directly rather than warming the surrounding air, offering an affordable and clean heating solution without the risk of creating propane or gas fumes.
