New heating systems

Our 60-year-old subterranean central heating system is kaput. We're thinking of not getting new central heating. We're in California so don't get extremely cold winters, and don't want to use electricity because of the cost. We're thinking of a fireplace insert for the front of the house and fixing a wall furnace in the back. What would be good systems for bedrooms about 125 sq ft and a 50 sq ft bathroom? Any other general suggestions?

(Sorry if this isn't the right forum for this)

do you have natural gas? is putting in a propane tank an option? maybe get some of those gas infared wall hanging heaters, or mini split system heat pimp, but they use electricity. what kind of heat system do you have now?

Central heating.

If you ever sell your home you may be required by state law to have working central heat. This protects the structure from freeze damage to the water piping. In Arizona itís the law. I would recommend that you check on this. Why not have central heating for yourself if you will eventually have to install it for the next owner? If nothing else lack of central heating will devalue your home significantly.
