When the cold winter months roll around, how much do you usually pay in utility bills to heat your home? No matter where you live, supplemental heating is a clever way to increase your home's energy efficiency and reduce those monthly expenses. If you think about your time at home, you may find that you spend more time in some rooms than others. Supplemental, or zone, heating allows you to keep the central thermostat turned down while still supplying heat to the rooms that you use most through electric fireplaces and stoves, gel fireplaces, or gas fireplaces. Not only is zone heating better for your pocketbook, but it's also better for the environment as it reduces wasted energy.
When you use traditional heating systems to heat your home, a large amount of energy is used to heat rooms that you are not even using at the time. Supplemental heating uses less energy and lowers your impact on the environment, because the fireplace or stove only operates when you are in the room. It's an easy way to lessen your carbon footprint.
Reducing the amount of energy spent on heating your home can dramatically lower your monthly utility payment. Switching to supplemental heating with a fireplace or electric stove is a simple step that can save you a lot of money.
