Where does your family spend the majority of their time in your home? Chances are, it’s mostly in just one or two rooms. There may even be rooms in your house that don’t get visited in a given week. Yet, some homeowners with central heating choose to heat those vacant rooms as much as the rooms in which they spend most of their time. A cost-saving alternative is to install a warmth-spreading hearth product to disperse heat strictly where you need it.
Zone heating with a fireplace, stove or set of gas logs allows you to heat a specific area of the house where residents spend the majority of their time. This allows homeowners to turn down the central thermostat and save on their energy costs. After all, it doesn’t make sense to constantly heat a laundry room or spare bedroom when those rooms are so rarely used. Instead, a hearth product can add beauty while heating just one or a cluster of the most popular rooms by itself, allowing the central heater or furnace to be relied on less.
Think about when you’re watching a movie or reading your favorite book in your favorite chair on a chilly evening. Do you really want to have to turn up the central thermostat to get that warm and cozy feeling most associated with a fireplace or stove? Zone heating with today’s high-efficiency hearth products can provide the wanted warmth and ambiance while controlling home heating costs.
There are several different options to consider when deciding on the right hearth product for your home. G&B Energy is available to help with a FREE, no obligation hearth consultation.
