Re: Heating Options for Cabin?
For heating that is relatively inexpensive to install, trouble free and only used sporadically, baseboard electric is hard to beat. Since it's only on when I'm there and doesn't heat at all, if the woodstove is going, electric costs are minimal.
My main source of cabin heat is a wood stove, but baseboard electric is also used while I'm there in cold weather. Same heat has worked since '83, zero maintenance costs. The baseboard elec. heat I installed when I built a house in 1976, was still working without any replacement parts, when I sold that house in 2002.
