Zone Heaters Make All The Difference
Kozy Heat fireplaces are manufactured in Lakefield, Minnesota, an area that is no doubt used to cold weather conditions. They are a family-owned business and have been in business for 40 years building wood and gas fireplaces.
Kozy Heat specializes in making zone heaters. This means that compared to your HVAC unit that is heating the entire house with every room, a fireplace is heating the main living spaces. This is a more efficient way to heat the home. The HVAC unit is like turning on every light in the home when you are in one room in the home, this is wasteful. Using a fireplace to heat one part of the home that you are using saves you money on your energy bill. A study performed on zone heating homes reflected an energy savings of 20 – 40 percent compared to homes that do not use zone heating.*
