Efficient Number of Zones
Hi HH Forum,
Have an old Colonial with Gas , FHW baseboard heating. Currently, there are 2 zones... 1 for the 1st floor and 1 for the 2nd. The house is currently configured as living space downstairs, bedrooms upstairs.
Considering the conversion back to a 2 family residence. The 1st floor would consist of 6 heated rooms and a heated entryway , the 2nd floor has 6 heated rooms and a heated hallway.
Here's my question: Would changing the number of zones on each floor, so you have the option to only heat the area you need, rather than the whole floor be worth the expense? AND would I recover the expense in savings over time?
Based on the layout of the dwelling..... I'm thinking 3 distinct zones per floor.
Any feedback would greatly be appreciated
