Home Heating Myths Debunked

Posted on December 4th, 2015 by BlueMountain

There are a lot of myths regarding home heating systems. Don’t believe everything you hear! We are here to debunk these myths and set the record straight.
 
Myth: Blasting the heat will make your home warm up quicker
Truth: It simply isn’t true! Increasing the temperature on the thermostat will only heat your home for a longer amount of time. It will not heat your home any faster.
 
Myth: Ceiling fans can only keep you cool
Truth: A lot of people do not know that ceiling fans can actually keep you warm in the wintertime. All you have to do is make sure that the blades of the fan rotate clockwise. 
 
Myth: Run multiple space heaters instead of a gas heating system to stay warm
Truth: This sounds like a cost-effective option in theory. After all, you would use space heaters to heat the rooms in your home that you spend time in. Space heaters run on electricity, which is more expensive than gas.
