Four Ways to Comfortably Heat Your Home

Oct 30 ,2013

Comfortably Heat Your Home

As the weather outside begins to cool, many homeowners will dig out warm blankets and sweaters. There are several ways – like zone heating – that you can effectively keep your entire home warm. At Northern’s One Hour, we specialize in several ways to control the heat in your house.

Zone Heating

If your house has a basement, vaulted ceilings or other areas that may not need to be kept at the same temperatures as other areas, you may benefit from zone heating. This method allows you to adjust the temperature so you are not heating areas where that energy is going to waste.

Programmable Thermostats

A programmable thermostat also works to maximize the efficiency of your system. These devices help you schedule when your system is working and when it isn’t, so you aren’t heating your home when you aren’t there. You can adjust the temperature based on the time of day and the day of the week.

Energy-Efficient Systems

If your system is old, odds are it is time for an upgrade. Contact a Minneapolis HVAC company to discuss options for installing a new system. A specialist can evaluate your current system and suggest a newer, more efficient one that can heat your home more evenly – and perhaps save you some money on utility bills.

Quality Maintenance

Lastly, your furnace should be inspected regularly to make sure it is running well. Change your filters once a month to reduce contamination and keep the air circulating smoothly. To take advantage of zone heating and other services, contact our specialists at Northern’s One Hour at 763-412-1197.
