This is a guest post about an alternative heating option. It's something that makes me want to look into if this option is available here, as the reasons seem pretty convincing. I can think of another reason why heater hire might be useful- it allows you to try out different heating types and seeing how you like something and how it affects your utilities bills before you invest a lot of money into your own heater.
As the soft golden sun cushions the morning mist and gently illuminates the myriad of colours that now decorate the trees, you’ll find yourself lost in the romance of an autumn dawn. But as beautiful as autumn is, and as fun as it is to kick those crunchy leaves and collect fallen conkers, it sure is cold.
The bad weather
If you live in the UK, you’ll know that this year hasn’t seen the best of the British summer (in fact, it was one of the worst in living memory!) but as the thermometer reports falling numbers every day, you’ll be yearning for the days that you could leave the house without a thick coat and for the days where you could sit indoors, at home or at work, without having to use a heater.
Why hire heaters
But it’s time to face the facts – it’s cold, and it’s only going to get colder. If you’re reading this right now and shivering away, that might not be the best news. There is some good news though, you can best the winter blues and blow away the cold with affordable heater hire.
So why not buy a heater?
Well, you could buy a heater, but then when the spring and summer months finally come around, you’ll have to find somewhere to store the heater. As well as storage, there is maintenance. If you haul that old heater out of the cupboard once a year, who’s to say that it will still be in full working order.
Safety comes first
In recent weeks, a fire raged through a home in Canada with flames that reached more than ten metres high (about 30 feet). According to the report by CBC, “the fire destroyed several sheds, a gazebo and a boat.” The home was also damaged, but fortunately nobody was home at the time so nobody was injured. Fire officials said the cause of the fire was a faulty heater.
Maintenance is king
When you are dealing with heaters, safety is of paramount importance. The devices have to get super-hot to heat a room and if they are not properly maintained, they can be a fire hazard. If you are hiring your heaters rather than purchasing them, you will have a guarantee that they will be fully maintained and checked before they are delivered to you.
Perhaps the best thing about heater hire is the range of heaters available and the expertise within your grasp. Rather than going to your local department store and selecting from the small range on offer, a hire company should have a large selection of the latest models for you to choose from to fit all sizes and requirements.
So whether you’re at home or at work when you admire that autumn scene, sit back and warm your hands and look forward to even more beauty in the winter time.
