Since it finally dropper below 70° here in Southern California, we thought it would be a good time to go over a few options to keep your home or apartment warm this winter.
The easiest and most affordable way to keep your feet warm. We have a small, 360 Degree Micrathermic Heater that can keep a small room fairly comfortable in cooler weather. Cost is on $69.00!
GAS WALL OR DIRECT-VENT FURNACE
Do you need to replace an old or inoperable tall wall furnace or shorter direct vent heater for your apartment? We carry units that are perfect for small, medium, or larger units. 25,000 BTU-50,000 BTU
WALL OR WINDOW UNIT
Replacement: If you’ve already got an existing unit inside a sleeve, more than likely Feder’s Distributors has a unit that will fit inside your existing sleeve.
Built with solid sides and vents on the back, these units come with trim kits that would cover additional space on the sides and top if your sleeve is larger than 24″ wide by 14 1/2″ tall. The heat-strip models are great as a secondary source of heating or primary source for smaller rooms.
New install: If you need to install a new unit in a wall or window, units with both a heat-strip or a heat-pump are available. Heat-strips will cost you a little less money up-front, but end up providing less heating capacity compared to a heat pump. Heat pumps are a little more expensive to purchase, but run a little more efficiently with more heating capacity. Just remember, if you need heat in your window or wall unit, anything 12,000 BTU or above typically run on 220V 20AMP circuits.
DUCTLESS MINI-SPLIT HEAT PUMPS
A bit more expensive to install than a wall air conditioner, but much sightlier, ductless mini splits are installed like a central air conditioner. The compressor, outside and the fan on an adjacent wall just under the ceiling. It is about 20% of the cost of a central system and cools/heats only one room. Please note, there are also options to run two, three, or even four indoor units off of one compressor, so please ask us about them!
