If you’re thinking of upgrading your heating system, you’re not alone. Believe it or not, 31% of US households have trouble paying their utility bills, and that’s not even mentioning appliance maintenance and (knock on wood) buying new appliances.
Well, if you want a new heating system for your home but don’t want to break the bank, then we have the solution for you. Let’s talk about how Martin heaters work and what sets them apart from their competitors!
How Martin Heaters Work
Martin heaters attach to your wall and lead directly to a propane tank outside or to a natural gas pipeline in your home. Their propane heaters work by converting liquid propane into gas and heating it with an efficiency of over 80%, taking in ample air for combustion. Then, the fumes are carried out with great precision through the exhaust, making these heaters extremely safe for indoor use. From there, the blower will distribute heat into the space you want to heat.
The great thing is that if you choose a Martin heater with a glass-ceramic window, you can watch this process in action. It will look like a cozy fireplace on your wall while offering the same amount of heat!
What Sets Martin Heaters Apart
First, Martin propane heaters are direct vent heaters, meaning they don’t rely on a grid. Their heaters connect directly to a propane tank outside of your home, which you can easily install yourself! Once they’re attached, you won’t even need electricity to power the thermostat, making this a perfect option for tiny house living or off-grid second homes.
Second, there is minimal upkeep or maintenance required. With a furnace, you’ll need to change the filter regularly and have the furnace serviced annually to prevent damage as well as fire and carbon monoxide risks.
Also, you can adjust the size of your unit for any room or space. Martin sells wall heaters between 8,000 BTUs and 20,000 BTUs, which is perfect for homes or cabins of any size.
Lastly, Martin heaters are some of the safest options on the market. Due to the lack of electricity, this is a great alternative to a furnace in the event of a power outage, which we all learned the importance of during Texas’ winter storm last year. They also pose a very low risk of fumes, fire hazards, or any other concerns you may have, making them a great off-grid heating solution!
Choosing the Right Martin Heaters for Your Needs
If you have a natural gas pipeline in your home, then you may want to consider using a Martin natural gas heater. However, if you’re off the grid, then propane will save you on carbon emissions and money without sacrificing any convenience. Once you have a tank outside, you can easily find someone to deliver propane at any time!
From there, it’s only a matter of space. Depending on the size of the room, cabin, or home that you’re trying to heat, you’ll need to choose the model with the right heating capacity.
Stay Warm This Winter
Now that you know some of the benefits of Martin heaters, you can see why they’re so popular for off-grid life across the US and Canada. Installation and maintenance are simple, the units are as safe and efficient as they come, and you don’t need to rely on electricity for anything!
