I have purchased a small home about 800sq.ft. Its heating system is poorly built, with no following of standard. It has a floor heating in every room with feeble effect. It is currently only suitable for summer residence. During winter (-30 during 3 months), we drain all the water in order to prevent the frozen water to cause pipes and faucets and the likes from burst.
I am considering to enable winter residence and consider heating systems that will continually maintain at last 50F temperature. I was wondering what would be best, reliable and cost conscuous heating system? Thanks.,
in canada with very cheap hydro electic rates 6.45 cents per kilowatt hour it would be electic baseboards .
