As the colder months of the year are approaching, it is time to start thinking about heating your home this winter. If you are looking for a way to reduce your heating costs, you may be interested in learning more about zone heating. This type of heating can save you up to 30 percent on your utility bills, according to the US Department of Energy. To utilize zone heating, you keep your thermostat turned down while heating the rooms you use the most often with a supplemental heat source, such as your fireplace or gas logs. American Chimney & Masonry loves to help our customers learn more about zone heating, so we would like to tell you more about this economical way of heating your home.
What are the benefits of zone heating?
Think about the amount of time you and your family spend in each room of your home. More than likely, you spend the majority of your time in only a few rooms. When you only heat the rooms you use instead of the whole house, you are able to save both money and energy. When you set the thermostat for your furnace to heat the entire house, it can be expensive, especially when you realize you are heating rooms that are rarely used. You can also be more comfortable with zone heating because you can provide as much heat as you wish with your supplemental heating appliances.
How can American Chimney & Masonry help me with zone heating?
We are proud to offer sales and installation services for different types of heating appliances that can be used for zone heating. One of the most popular appliances used in zone heating is gas logs. This can be the best option for adding supplemental heat to a room without a chimney because we sell both vented and ventless gas logs. Ventless gas logs do not need to be vented through a chimney, so they make a great source of supplemental heat to use for zone heating. We also sell and install a wide variety of wood-burning and gas stove inserts that can be installed into your existing masonry fireplace to update its energy efficiency. Our staff is very knowledgeable about the best heating appliances to use in zone heating, and we would be happy to help you get your home set up to save money and energy this winter.
