An electric baseboard heater is an electrical heating element inside a metal pipe. When the heater is turned on, an electric current flows through the heating element. This type of heater is really efficient to use for zonal heating (heating only occupied rooms in your home).
The Wi-Fi® enabled thermostat is a relatively new product to the HVAC market that is already seeing great success. Wi-Fi enabled thermostats are adding additional benefits to homeowners that have not been enjoyed in the past. Depending on homeowner habits, a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat could potentially cut the cost of your next heating or cooling bill.
One of the quickest and simplest ways to reduce energy costs is to use a programmable thermostat. There are many varieties of thermostats available today with a host of features, but the one that provides the bulk of the energy savings is the programmable feature.
One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bill is to stop cooling or heating your home when no one is there. The easiest way to do that is by using a programmable thermostat. Rather than waking up to a chilly house, or walking in after work to a home that feels like an oven, a programmable thermostat allows you to control when your home needs to be cooled or heated, and when it doesn’t.
Few things are as enjoyable on a cold winter night as sitting next to a warm fire. But the reality is that you might be sending your energy bill up in smoke. More than 100 million homes in North America are built with wood or gas burning fireplaces and nearly all of them can contribute to energy loss.
