One of the first upgrades to your home heating system that you may want to consider is the installation of a programmable thermostat. A high quality manual thermostat is fine, but it does not give you the same amount of control over the way in which you use the energy and heat you pay for to keep your home comfortable. With a programmable thermostat you set different programs for different situations that will allow you to be comfortable all winter long without paying an arm and a leg for the service. Set your thermostat to raise temperatures shortly before you get home from work or vacation to conserve energy throughout the day while still coming home to a comfortable house.
You may also want to consider the installation of a whole house humidifier in your home. If this is simply not in your budget try running a room humidifier for a while and see if you notice a difference. Air in the winter tends to be pretty dry, and it is dried out further by your heater. Humid air, though, holds heat better than dry air. By instilling more humidity into the air in your home you can actually help it to retain heat better. This means that you will be able to pay less to keep your home just as warm and comfortable.
There are many other ways, big and small, for you to upgrade your home heating system, from zone controls to all new equipment. Make the most out of your heating experience in Salt Lake City. Call Design Comfort today for more information.
