New Jersey experiences the full effects of the seasons. The Northeast is bitterly cold in winter and scorching hot in mid-summer. Ever-increasing energy prices, make it harder and harder for homeowners to heat and cool their homes. Pipe Works Services has the HVAC solutions you are looking for: a system called residential zone heating. Zone heating is the ability to heat or cool specific areas in your home. Why should you, the homeowner, have to heat or cool the whole house, when, for example, the whole family is in their bedrooms, the kitchen, or the living room? That just makes no sense energy-wise. The U.S. Department of Energy says that homeowners could save as much as 30 percent in energy costs if they install programmable thermostats and zone heating. Your home needs zone control if any of the following conditions exist: It is more than one level. It has large open areas, like a loft, a solarium, or cathedral ceilings. There are extra rooms off the back of the garage. There is a finished basement or attic. Your family’s lifestyle makes it so that areas of the house need to be heated or cooled differently. The heat and cooling needs of your house differ throughout the day. Part of your house is built over a concrete slab. If your house rambles or has wings off the main living area.
