Optimize your home’s heating and air conditioning system to save money on your electric bill.
When people talk about ways to save money on heating and air conditioning, it usually involves basic things like HVAC system maintenance and weatherproofing your house. However, these two specific products can also have a measurable impact on cost savings and air quality.
Radiant Floor Heat
Have you ever climbed out of bed on a crisp fall morning, only to yelp in shock as your feet came in contact with an icy floor? This is where radiant floor heat comes in. Hardwoods, concrete, tile…just about any floor can be improved with a radiant heat system.
Tubes filled with a special liquid circulate through your radiant system, to the originating heat source, and back again. The liquid absorbs the heat, and then disperses it into the flooring in a continuous cycle. Your floor heats up quickly…and so does the air around it. It’s a very speedy and energy efficient system, which means you save money without sacrificing warmth.
Aside from super-fast heat delivery, radiant heat has the added benefit of being a ductless heat delivery vehicle. What does that mean? Well basically it means you aren’t blowing hot air, dust, mold, and other unpleasant particles throughout your house.
Wouldn’t you think it was wasteful to leave every light in your house burning, even when you were only using the light in your kitchen? So why should your heating system be any different?
When most people think of zoning systems, they think of outdated baseboard heating models. Things have progressed a long way since then, but the premise of zonal heating is still a good one. You only heat the rooms you are using, when you are using them. You save money by only using what you need. And you can settle the age-old battle for the temperature setting by giving each individual their own climate-controlled space. We call that a win-win.
