The Secret to Keeping Home Warm This Winter

Monday, December 28th, 2015

Having trouble staying warm in the winter? We’re right there with you! We know that winters can get incredibly frigid in the north, which is why finding the best home heating solutions is so important. In conjunction with your central heating system, there are several remedies that can have you feeling toasty in no time. Below are four smart solutions:

Heat insulation of house
Use a portable heater – Heat up those cool areas in the home by relying on a trusty portable heater. Although portable heaters have a reputation for being fire hazards, if you know the do’s and don’ts of how to use one, it can be extremely reliable during the winter.

Unroll area rugs – Walking around barefoot on tile or hardwood during the winter is one thing we’d all like to avoid, especially when the temperatures drop below freezing. And while installations such as radiant heat might efficiently keep your toes toasty during those cold months of the year, not every home can install them. In this case, your best bet is to lay out more area rugs in the home. Not only does this method guarantee a warmer home, but it’s more cost-effective.

Buy proper window treatments – One of the most obvious ways to keep your home more insulated is by hanging up heavy drapes. But before you go out and buy a set, make sure you have the proper measurements. In other words, you don’t want your drapes hanging too low to the ground, enough to block floor vents and baseboards. So take a few quick measurements before heading to the store.

Invest in zone control systems – Want to heat up that one zone in the home that always gets the most chilly? When you buy a zone control system, you no longer need to worry about feeling uncomfortable (or fighting over the temperature in your home). In fact, every room can be set to a different temperature using one control system.

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Unless you live on your own, chances are you’ve had an argument about the temperature in your home at one point or another. If you find yourself constantly adjusting the temperature throughout your home in an attempt to heat or cool only one area, then a zone control system might be the solution for you.

What is a zone control?
Zone control systems allow you to individually set different temperatures throughout your home to help increase efficiency when heating or cooling.

What are the benefits?

Forced Air Zone Control
By setting up a forced air zone control system, you can heat or cool each room using a separate thermostat. In other words, each thermostat is wired to its own zone so that you no longer need to settle on a single temperature for your entire home.

Hydronic Zone Controls
A hydronic zone control system allows you to get the most out of your boiler system and heat your home on a room to room basis. You have a control panel and a thermostat for each zone so that your boiler doesn’t have to overwork itself to create unneeded heat.

When it comes to zone control systems, the greatest benefit of all is that everyone can choose the temperature they want in different areas of the home.
