Alternatives to Central Heating:

If you want a very much simpler and less expensive form of background heating there are other types of heaters that can be used.

The new kerosene heaters are well worth looking at — a modern and much more efficient version of the old fashioned kerosene heater, slow burning and very reliable and quite fool proof.

As well as these there are all kinds of electric radiators. A type that heats oil circulating through pipes or through flat dimpled panels, are ideal for the nursery as they are so safe and can be used to dry the clothes. There are other electric heaters, some with fans, others are new versions of the old electric radiator but in every case look for a radiator that has the element well protected as safety is one of the most important factors in selecting your type of domestic heating.
