In places like Gilbert, Arizona, most of the year is pretty mild and doesn’t require a heater. If this is the case you may want to know about the best ways to keep your home warm depending on how much cold weather you get. This varies greatly by city and state, but we’ll talk about the weather and Gilbert and your best options to keep your home comfortable and warm when those colder months finally hit.
Monthly Weather Averages In Gilbert
The summers in Gilbert, Arizona are usually pretty hot, (like up to 120 degrees hot) so no need to discuss heaters at that point, but once it starts getting into December the daily highs tend to still be warm, but the evenings start to get quite chilly once the sun goes down. (it can even get under 20 degrees out in the desert!) You may need to start heating your home for a couple of hours a night during this time.
However, it only stays cold in Gilbert for a couple of months. January and February are the coldest months, where you’ll probably need a way to keep your home warm pretty consistently, but once you get into March it begins to get pretty mild again and before you know it you’re into spring and summer again.
So you may be wondering what your heating options are for such a short period of time out of the year with chilly weather. Well, the short answer is you have a few.
Get A Heater
This is the way many people choose to go and in many modern or recently-built houses will already have one. A central heating system is a great way to maintain your house’s temperature at exactly what you want without giving it much thought.
Although, since it’s not usually very cold for much of the year, you may think this might be overkill.
One of the great ways to keep your home warm during those early months of winter before it gets actively cold is to make sure you open all the blinds and really try to warm the house up during the day and then keep all the windows closed once the sun goes down to maintain as much heat as possible within the walls.
Wood Burning Fireplaces
Fireplaces are not only a great aesthetic feature, but their a great option for areas where it doesn’t get cold much of the year, but you still want a way to keep warm during these months. Fires are easy to make and cost-effective, so they save you a lot of trouble during those couple of months when things dip below 50.
These are becoming more uncommon, but another great way to keep your house warm in the cooler months is with a radiator. These are great because you just switch them on for a few minutes in the morning and the evening and they stay warm and thus heat up the rooms. It’s cost-effective and easy.
There are lots of ways to stay warm during the cooler months, even in a place like Gilbert, Arizona when that may only last a month or two. Just because you don’t have cold weather for long, doesn’t mean you have limited options.
