We all know how expensive it is to heat your whole house. Many people have been trying to think of a way to reduce our energy bills. Turns out that they’ve found an efficient way; Zone Heating. What is Zone Heating? It is the term used when you heat the room you’re most in with an alternative heat source instead of using your main heating system. Keep reading to understand why it’s more efficient to use a fireplace than using your furnace alone.

What Is Zone Eating and How It Works

Research has been made about how much time we spend in each room of our home. Results said that we spend more than 80 percent of our time in only 20 percent of our house. Therefore, it would make sense to heat that 20 percent. That would save you a lot of money. You don’t have to look far into the past to see that people used to heat their house with a single fireplace or stove, thus, heating the room they would be in the most. It is efficient and economic! The best way to use Zone Heating is to get a fireplace or a heater and heat the rooms you’re usually in. Myself, I bought a heater for my bedroom and installed a fireplace in my living room. I did this because the fireplace looks gorgeous and on Sunday nights I like to gather with my family and watch a movie with the fireplace going.

The Benefits of Zone Heating

One of the most important things to learn about Zone Heating is it is very beneficial to your wallet and your carbon footprint. First of all there’s the comfort. It is important to feel comfortable in your favorite rooms. Then there’s the efficiency. Proper use of Zone Heating can save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs each year just by keeping the furnace set a little lower. And last, but not least, quiet performance. Heating your room with a fireplace is way quieter than having the furnace working all of the time.
