Most years I can get away with a small space heating system in the kitchen while in the winter! The temperatures are never really chilly in this area of the country, and i live in Rocklin, CA.
The coldest weeks of the year are December, December, plus December.
There is plenty of rain while in the Winter plus really cool temperatures, but there is rarely any snow or chilly temperatures in Rocklin, CA. The temperatures can be chili at times, so I have constantly kept a small space heating system in the kitchen. If I close the door plus keep the windows closed, then the room has a nice ambient temperature of 71°. I bought the space heating system about 10 years ago plus it is starting to show its age. There is a lot of wear plus tear that happens throughout 10 years. This space heating system has been knocked over a dozen times plus once it tumbled over plus fell all the way down the stairs. I have been thinking about getting a ductless heating equipment for the house. I spoke with a Rocklin heating company to get an method of the price plus replacement service that was involved. I thought that I might be able to buy a ductless heating system online plus install it on my own, but the replacement process was a little more involved than I expected after talking to the service serviceman from the Rocklin Heating company. I still haven’t made any decisions about what I’m going to do, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to contact the heating company plus have the ductless method installed before it gets too chilly this year.
