Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Columbia home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Columbia. A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to regulate the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural characteristics, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Columbia, the top level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to make sure there is even air distribution throughout your home. This means you may be able to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay comfy with extra temperature control. Zoning your home means that you are also able to heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have certain areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used. We have many possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you during the process.
