We're sharing the best options for heating a tiny house, the pros and cons of each heat source, and the product links below if you want to learn more!

Choosing a heating option for your tiny house can be overwhelming. There are so many options out there! To start, you'll want to ensure you have a well insulated tiny house, and an HRV system (heat recovery ventilation) to ensure you're always getting fresh air in your house without losing precious heat energy.

Once you have this information, you can start considering options like a wood stove or fireplace, a propane heater, electric baseboard or wall heater, a solar air heater, or in-floor radiant heat.

Exploring Alternatives is a social media project dedicated to alternative lifestyles.

We publish weekly YouTube videos about alternative living, including the best tiny house blogs, homesteading, off-grid living, green building, camper van conversions, sailboat live a boards, long-term travel, minimalism, zero waste, and more.

Exploring Alternatives was founded by Mat & Danielle, a Canadian couple who is passionate about exploring alternative lifestyles and spaces. They travel in their self-built camper van (in the warmer months, it is Canada after all!) to film and create their videos.

To start, you'll want to ensure you have a well insulated tiny house, and an HRV system (heat recovery ventilation) to ensure you're always getting fresh air in your house without losing precious heat energy. Next, you'll want to use a BTU (British Thermal Unit) calculator to enter the climate and volume details for your tiny house so you can find out how big or small your heating system needs to be. At this point, it's a good idea to also decide if you want to be on the grid, off the grid, or have the ability to do both. Once you have this information, you can start considering options like a wood stove or fireplace, a propane heater, electric baseboard or wall heater, a solar air heater, or in-floor radiant heat. We've included links below for the heating systems we've seen used in tiny houses we've visited over the past few years. We're not sponsored by any of these companies.
