Default Heating

Hi Everyone;

Were looking for examples of non-woodstove

heating

options for our 20 yurt. Were using it as a detached addition to our home in Mid-Coast Maine, and want it to be ready for use whenever we want it. Wed generally keep a max indoor temp of 62-65 F.

Electric?, propane? Whats worked best for you?

Thanks!

I'd advise you to get a brazier, and a huge stack of dollar bills, and burn the money to heat your yurt.

You'd better be rich, 'cos

heating

an outdoor room 24/7/365 is going to cost a fortune no matter what heating method you use.

lol, that was a funny comment!

But seriously, I agree that blowing our precious natural resources out for a standby luxury item is not a good idea.

Might I suggest converting your 20' yurt into a 20' greenhouse yurt?

I can make or you could have made by someone a high quality greenhouse fabric covering for your yurt.

This may actually provide a nice solar gain to help heat your house in the winter.

The walls can have a inner layer of screening, making it so that you can open the walls completely and have a screen room during the summer months.

Yes, electric is definitely easiest. No installation costs, movable, and with a thermostat.

If you want to minimize the heat loss, go for the highest rated

insulation

package available, the one meant for high-altitude-Colorado or Canada. It will seem like overkill but it'll pay for itself over just a few years if you're keeping the place warm all the time.

Enjoy! A yurt is so lovely to have, beautiful round space, circular skylight, just the best.
