Heating

Hi I host a wooden chalet in a holiday village which can get quite cold in the winter months. I have put in 3 mobile oil heaters one for each room . The problem I have is they keep tripping the electric and I can’t up the wattage. How can I keep my guests comfortable during the colder weather?

Hi. Firstly, put electric blankets on the beds and cover with a mattress  cover. 

I'd invest in a couple of electric throw rugs. I have one in my home and love it. They are washable. 

These items cost very little to run. 

I agree you should close it down if it's very cold.

@Claire2219 A few options

1) Shut down in Winter when there are fewer guests anyway and accept what is basically a shed is not suited for cold times of the year

2) Get a gas heater for the living area so the electric is only needed in the bedrooms

3) Sort the electrics out - 3 x 2kW heaters should only draw 24 Amps so any normal supply really ought to cope with this.

Ask the holiday village management company I am sure they can make some recommendations about what other owners are using @Claire2219

Hi @Claire2219 ! Hope the winter-y weather is treating you and your guests well.

Did you follow @Bronwyn100's advice and go ahead with the idea of providing electric throw and rugs for your guests?
