Enjoying the serenity of the outdoors is one of life’s great pleasures, especially when you can do so in the privacy of your own backyard from the comfort of your patio. Bromic Heating’s range of gas, electric and portable heating solutions offer the ability to extend comfort outdoors and in the case of this home, have transformed the use of both patios in the cooler months.
“Living in New England, our time to enjoy the outdoors is usually limited by the weather,” explains Carol, owner of this gorgeously gargantuan traditional American home in Greenwich, Connecticut. “While I wanted outdoor heating, I have never been a fan of the popular freestanding propane heaters. I don’t like the hassle of having to continually supply propane or the fact that people stand right next to the fire. The alternative, fixed gas heaters, must be suspended several inches from the ceiling and would be an eyesore.”
“I much prefer the convenience of electric heating,” Carol continues. “I wanted something that would disappear into the ceiling design and my plumbing and heating contractor of over a decade, Carl Geib of Unlimited Plumbing & Mechanical, suggested the 6000W Tungsten Smart-Heat™ Electric. This turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. From an aesthetic standpoint, they are unobtrusive, and, from a safety standpoint, they are overhead and not inches from your hair or your clothing.”
In order to coherently tie into the white, cream and stone theme of this home, white Tungsten Smart-Heat™ Electric heaters were chosen and mated with matching recess kits that allowed subtly seamless integration into the existing roofline. To enable complete comfort control, Wireless Dimmer Controllers were also installed, offering the ability to remotely adjust heating output from up to 100ft/30m away!
“Before Bromic’s Tungsten Smart-Heat™ Electric heaters were installed, we rarely used the porches beyond summer but now, we enjoy these spaces throughout the year,” Carol rejoices. “It is such a treat being able to entertain friends outdoors when the warm weather is behind us and I really enjoy watching my kids play in the yard from the comfort of a heated porch. Most days, I just feel lucky to be on a warm porch while waiting for our dog to come inside.”
“If you have the space to install Bromic heaters, I would highly recommend doing so,” Carol concludes. “Bromic Heating are a company with excellent customer service and they stand behind their product every step of the way. They provide a clean, well-built and polished product and the benefits provided are well worth it.”
