A good boiler should last 100 years

Its interesting, when you dig deep into a 100 year old living thing (such as the companies that make up this industry) you learn a lot.

Here is an image of some of the cards in the office. Pretty cool

The baseboards are just heating elements, electric.

The only sources of energy available is electric. I think she will just have to go with regular free standing heaters and insulate the place. Thermal blinds and drapes will definitely help, door sliders and shrink wrap windows will make a huge difference.

Thanks for the help!

Electric Heat???

@ August 30, 2013 10:07 AM in Electric Heat???

A family friend of mine is renting a cottage in CT through the winter. It is only for a couple of months, and she is concerned about her heating situation.
She is forced to use electric, and I am stumped for any suggestions.
The baseboard she is using now stays at a cool 60 DEG no matter what.
The dyson heating and cooling ring seems cutting edge and sexy, but I am not sure if it is worth the money.
It will be a costly winter nevertheless. Any suggestions for a cost effective electric heating solution?
