The days are getting longer, flowers are blooming, and that crisp mountain air is rolling into Grand Junction. …but let’s be honest, even in spring, the mornings can still leave you chilled and void of motivation to pull back your warm, cozy comforter and start your day. Sure, you could crank up the heat for the whole house just to chase away the bedroom chill, but that’s not exactly efficient. Enter the magic of zone heating – a revolutionary way to keep your home comfortable and save you money on utility bills.

Designed with you in mind, zone heating solutions allow you to blast the heat in certain areas (or zones) of your home, while keeping the rest cool – offering a personalized and controllable experience every time, no matter the season. Keep reading to learn if zone heating is the perfect fit for your Grand Junction home, and how The Chimney Doctor can help you achieve ultimate comfort.

What Is Zone Heating?

So, what exactly do we mean when we say zone heating? While zone heating might be an alternative to the central heating method, it’s also a way to utilize flame-producing appliances in various areas of your home that might need the concentrated warmth. This approach is really the best of both worlds – especially here in Colorado where the temperatures fluctuate throughout the year – because it gives you the convenience of central heating, with the supplemental capabilities of targeting specific zones.

And while this customizable freedom is certainly a plus in and of itself (and the perfect excuse to update your space with a shiny new appliance), zone heating can also help you drastically reduce the amount of money spent heating your home each month. Why spend more to feel comfortable in those high traffic areas like bedrooms and living rooms if so much heat is lost and wasted in the unfinished basement or storage closet, anyway? Zone heating ensures that your money actually goes to what matters: keeping you and your family comfortable year-round.

What Are the Benefits of Zone Heating?

There are numerous benefits of taking the zone approach to heating your home. Here are some of the most notable:

  • Customizable comfort for the whole family. No longer will you have to fight with your family members over the ambient temperature in your home. With zone heating solutions, everyone can enjoy their space how they like it: from cool and refreshing to warm and toasty.
  • Better distribution of heat – when and where you need it most. Tired of that one drafty spot in the living room that the warmth never quite seems to reach? Utilizing an appliance like a gas fireplace or a freestanding stove will ensure that the heat in its surrounding zone receives adequate, palpable heat.
  • Prolong the longevity of your HVAC system. When you supplement your central heating and cooling system with other appliances, not only do you have more control over the output, but you’re extending the life of your HVAC system. Rather than going into overdrive whenever you’re feeling a chill, your existing system can maintain its regular operation and continue to serve you and your family for years to come.
