The perfect addition to all homes & cottages

Living it Up, Up North I live in Leelanau County and work in Traverse City, so admittedly I am in those locales more than I am in the Petoskey region. But I keep a hard eye on that gorgeous Torch-Little Traverse area, and no more so than when I am working on the Petoskey Area Home Tour. I get up there plenty in the months before the tour, and not just passing through— getting to visit with folks in their homes who live there both part time and year round. And let me tell you, life above Traverse City is large. Start with stunning water from Little Traverse Bay to Pickerel, Walloon Lake to Charlevoix and Torch. Add the new American Viticultura Area (AVA) Petoskey Wine Region and the vineyards and tasting rooms that go with. Brew pubs are popping up everywhere including two in Boyne City alone—Stiggs and Boyne City Taproom. BC’s Cafe Sante is as authentic as any Euro bistro. The crepes at That French Place in Charlevoix transport you across The Pond, and don’t miss The Cantina tucked in the alley behind Bridge Street. And that’s just a taste. Throw in some fabulous trails, including the Little Traverse Wheelway that goes from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs (and back) and the new Charlevoix to Boyne City trail (still under construction). There’s so much more, including the fact that the landmarks Ernest Hemingway semifictionalized in his Nick Adams stories are all still there. And add to that some stunning new residential architecture—which we give you a peek of on our 2019 Northern Home & Cottage Tour. Check out our Tour Guide beginning on page 15. Use the guide to whet your appetite. Then get your ticket and meet us out there for a fabulous day—getting up close and personal with life Up North of Traverse City.

Our sunrooms, WeatherMaster® windows, decks and railings are designed for a worry-free experience. They are designed to extend your enjoyment of the outdoors without common annoyances like wind, rain, insects and harmful U.V. Rays. A Sunspace Sunroom, as well as our WeatherMaster® products will not only add beauty and comfort to any home or cottage, but also increase the value.

WHAT'S HOT IN OUTDOOR HEATERS

By Elizabeth Edwards

WHO : JOSEPH WORTMAN, President of Detroit Radiant Products Company Tell me about your company: Detroit Radiant Products dates back to 1955. At that time, we were a manufacturer of heating products for the auto industry. Now fast forward 65 years. We are still owned and managed by the third generation of my family, only now with a global presence. Our headquarters is in Warren, Michigan, but we have operations in close to 20 countries. Our company offers many types of infrared heaters, forced air heaters and LED lighting solutions. One of our strengths is with outdoor infrared patio heating.

Fix-mounted as opposed to the kind that sit on the floor? Yes, those are called umbrella style heaters. They emit heat in a circular pattern. They are lower in cost and easy to move but they have big drawbacks including constantly needing their propane tanks refilled. They are also easy to trip on, can tip over easily, they block the sun and take up valuable floor space. Not to mention needing to store them in the off season. Your heaters come in both electric and natural/LP gas versions. Pros and cons of each? Gas is the most popular as it gives the most energy-bang for your buck while offering more coverage and better heat. The down side is that you need to consider emissions and make sure the unit is

Your heaters are used in both commercial and residential settings. What sets them apart from other outdoor patio heaters?

comfortably. You will need to make sure that your home is wired for the amount of electrical consumption they take. You also need to choose between short wave and medium wave. Short wave heat can be intense and also emits a bright light. This can challenge the ambiance of the space. The medium wave is a softer heat which is not Northern Home & Cottage

as hot as the short wave but has a soft subtle orange glow. Beyond that, electric units are aesthetically very appealing. Any safety considerations? Yes, there always needs to be room to maintain the heaters clearances from combustible materials—things like wooden fans, sprinkler systems and lighting. The gasstyle products will require proper venting if the room can be sealed. How many square feet do these heaters cover? We typically try for about 150 BTUs per square foot. The average gas-fired heater covers an area of about 8 ft. x 8 ft. Our bigger heaters can cover about 12 ft. x 12 ft. But there will be exceptions to these coverages pending product selection and available mounting height. Typical mounting heights are from 9 to 14 feet high.

NASTY CRAWL SPACE?

Creating a longer patio season in Northern Michigan is pretty enticing. Can you give us an idea of the cost? Sure. Gas patio heaters run from $800 to $1600 per unit. Most residential patios utilize a single unit. Installation costs can vary depending on how much gas piping and electrical will be required to reach the heater. If electric-style heaters are desired, they can run from $300 to $800 per unit but generally you need more of them to cover the same size space as a gas-fired product. How can I find out more about them?  To find our product offering or to locate a
