The bigger problem I had was with them constantly touching buttons and messing up the settings.
We have one in the master bedroom upstairs at the other end of the house from the stove. I have that same problem with my wife. And she is 70.
You could maybe install a top and bottom vent in the door itself and place a box fan at the bottom vent blowing towards the hall thereby hopefully creating a warm air vacuum through the top vent in the door.
Will still let some light and noise through, but the box fan may make enough white noise to cancel out the sound possibly.
If the room is not too large and is well insulated I would suggest checking out eheat.com. These are electric heaters that use 375 watts and really do work well for smaller rooms. If you leave the door open until bedtime then the electric heater will kick in when needed to keep the real cold out.
This. I have the same issue, and the door is closed for 1-2 hours. When we go to bed, we open the door. Is it a few degrees colder in there? Sure. Doesn't seem to bother my kid in the least. Try it out for a little while first. If they're not waking up and complaining about being cold, don't worry about it. Put an extra blanket on them
My wife uses an oil filled electric radiator in her bedroom at the low setting but only at times of sub zero weather. Those few nights of use don`t seem to affect the electric bill.
Personally I think it`s the most economical , quickest , reasonably safe , and efficient solution to what can be an uncomfortable situation.
I was going to suggest just cuddling, but the end result of that is often the least economical, quick, or safe. In fact, it can set you back 18 years + college tuition.
Those days are gone!
We just keep bedroom doors open. We open the kids door when we go to sleep. Easy...
Try this unless you are up early and wake them up. Sucks when the door squeaks when you try and close it at 530am!
But with the doors closed, you are screwed. I'm in the same boat as you. Open all day then closed at night. We run a small electric space heater up there. Nice and toasty, mom and dad sleep warm and longer. Can't beat that!
I do this. The difference is night and day.
Weird. I swear I just read the same thread and posted the same thing. Deju-vu.
Post #13 2nd pic of what this dude did. Childproof electric heater.
I prefer cool air in the bed rooms. We use low Voltage (12 V dc) electric blankets to keep warm while the oil system keeps the bedroom air at about 62 degrees.
Seems like you could close the door until you go to bed then open it for the rest of the night. It wouldn't get real cold for 2 or 3 hours.
