Oil filled heaters
I own a bungalow house with an apt downstairs. I have tenants upstairs and downstairs. Appx 600 square feet On each level. The house is heated by forced air oil furnace. The problem is the heat comes on everywhere Through house and can’t be operated separately by the tenants. I’ve advised everyone to turn down Thermostat if you’re out for awhile to let the other tenant “control the heat”.
If someone leaves the heat on and the other tenant finds it to hot, they have to hit the kill switch to turn furnace off.
I’m wondering about using an oil filled heater in either the apt upstairs or downstairs and have them
Turn their thermostat way down. Each tenant has pets and I thought this type of portable heating would be safest.
We had a very cold winter in Canada last year and I was $1500 over budget. Any thoughts, ideas, solutions would be appreciated. I’m looking to sell property because I can’t control the heating cost and can only charge so much rent. For now I have to consider my options
