Are there some rooms in your home that warm up nicely while others feel like the frozen tundra? Uneven heating of homes is more common than you’d think. Luckily for you, there is a way to fix this issue — it’s called zone heating.
What Is Zone Heating?
Rather than having one thermostat controlling the entire heating system, you can have multiple thermostats installed to heat different areas of your home. This will allow you to heat a colder room more while lowering the heat in a room that sits at a warmer temperature. Zone heating is a more optimal way of heating your house evenly than just increasing the temperature of a master thermostat.
Using Zone Heating
Since you can control separate thermostats, you can choose which rooms you would like to heat. If you only use your bedroom, kitchen, and living room, then you can set those zones for a specific temperature. Every other room in the house can be put on a minimum heat temperature with the damper closed to block off the air. Why heat rooms that you’re not using?
Perks of Zone Heating
Raising the thermostat of a home without zone heating will cause your heating system to overwork as it tries to evenly heat your home. Raising the temperature in cooler rooms, while lowering temperatures in warmer rooms, will help prevent your heating system from overworking.
No matter if your home heats unevenly, or if you only want to heat rooms you commonly use, zone heating will help you cut your utility bills by a significant amount.
Zone heating is a great way to make sure your home stays at an even and comfortable temperature, while also helping you save money on utility bills.
