HEATER

Add an electric heater on a wall in the room to make the space comfortable and warm.

Having trouble getting heat to a room? Sometimes a room is located too far away from the furnace ducts that supply heat to the rooms in a house. If that's the case, consider adding an electric heater installed on a wall in the room to make the space comfortable and warm. This add-on solution is a less expensive way to solve the problem than upgrading the heating system.

For the maximum heating output, locate the unit low on a wall where nothing obstructs the flow of air like a piece of furniture.

A heating contractor charges $527, including labor and material, to install a good-quality 3,000-watt heater. If you have electrical experience and tools, you can do the job for $315, the cost of the unit, and save 40 percent. But that's not our recommendation; it's a job that requires a licensed professional for a safe and certified installation that meets building code requirements.
