I live in CO where the weather can go from 100 in the summer to -15 in the winter. We are going to be building a new house but I'm not really happy with the limited selection our architect has shown us. Where we are building, there isn't access to natural gas, so we are looking at propane or electrical heat. I wanted to do at least 3 zones in the house, maybe 4. We are planning on a 2 story, a garden level, and a main floor. I wanted to look at some heating that would help us save money over all, while not breaking the bank just installing the system. Can you recommend a system to look at?
I have heard about a system that has a motion sensor to detect movement in a room and turn heat on in that room, and off in a room that isn't used. However I have yet to find anything on it, and it seems like it may be a bit expensive. What are your thoughts?
