Nothing compares to the pleasure of ducking out from the cold into the warm confines of a heated home or office. But what’s a fair price for the comfort of a heating system?
Chances are you won’t get the results you seek by rolling out a small space heater or buying thicker coat. For optimal comfort, you’re going to need a temporary heating system.
And there’s a good reason to rush: prolonged exposure to the cold increases your risk of developing hypothermia, colds, flu, frostbite, heart attacks, and even depression, warns Consumer Reports.
But don’t get caught spending too much (or too little). Follow this guide to make sure you get a fair-priced system that fits your needs:
1. The Initial Cost
Temporary heating systems can range in cost from super affordable to downright breaking the bank. There are two factors that will bring down or skyrocket the price of admission.
First, you have to be willing to shell out for efficiency, says SFGate. The most efficient units will cost far more than the least efficient, but they’ll consume less electricity in the long run, ultimately saving you money.
Second, heating a small space is much cheaper than heating a large one. Larger rooms require larger and more powerful temporary heating systems as there is more air that needs to be heated.

Smaller emergency heating equipment in San Francisco does not require professional installation since it’s usually portable or easy to install. However, the bigger units are often complicated or clunky to set up. Not only will a trained technician be able to install the unit correctly, but he or she will also be able to assess how best to position your new system so that it operates at peak efficiency.
Operational costs vary from unit to unit. You may be tempted to go for the cheapest temporary heating system available, but be warned: these are often less efficient and will quickly spike your monthly electricity bill.
Consider investing in a heating system that is fixed with a thermostat and energy-saving modes. These features will give you more control over the unit, allowing you to streamline usage and save a fortune in operating costs.
