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 bills. If you think about how much time you spend in each room, you may find that you spend more time in some rooms than others. Supplemental, or zone, heating allows you to keep the thermostat turned down and supplement the heat in the rooms that you use most with electric fireplaces and stoves, gel fireplaces, or gas fireplaces.
Save 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.
Save Money. 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.
Supplemental Heating Options. Supplemental heating lowers your impact on the environment and saves you money, all while maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home. There are a variety of supplemental heating options that fit all styles and budgets. Here are a few of our favorite electric and gas supplemental heat options:
