I recently had a baby and I wanted to make sure the house is moderate enough for him, and elgin, IL gets truly cold suddenly and it stays for a long time, and the house has a gas fireplace and a ventless heating system in the kitchenâ€¦ I wasn’t sure about the baby’s room though.
I truly didn’t want to put a space heating system in his room because that could be a fire hazard, but my house didn’t come with air duct so I couldn’t add a furnace or anything love that.
I talked to my local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor in Elgin and asked for advice, then he told me that I could really install a mini chop in the baby’s room. This is a ductless equipment that mounts on the wall. It can control both heating and cooling in a single unit, but what is great is that I paid extra to have a smart temperature control with it; Now at night I can alter the temperature control from my iPhone. I can ensure my baby is at the right temperature, baby’s run a little hotter than all of us do. However, living in IL means the weather is cold a lot, however so I make sure that the baby’s room is at least 73 degrees at night. I also love to have a fan going to make some sounds. This addition to our house was more than worth it. I don’t care if my hubby and I freeze all Winter time long. My baby boy needs to have the official amount of heating in his room. Eventually I method to add onto the outdoor air compressor. That means my hubby and I could have a mini chop in our room. Someday all of us could even get rid of our other heaters.
