My 1500 square foot condo was built in 1980 and came with radiant ceiling heat. Must have been a (poorly thought out) fad back then. It's expensive to use and doesn't work efficiently, or at all in some rooms. Space heaters are fine in the smaller rooms, but the living room/dining room is cavernous. I'm open to short term solutions (baseboard heaters?) and long term solutions as long as they are electrically powered. (No gas.) Any advice? Thanks!

Robi,

I can imagine the expense of running an electrical resistance radiant ceiling heat. And if it doesn't work very well, that's a double whammy. 

So your options, in a nutshell, as...
