Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Columbus home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Columbus. 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Columbus, the higher 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay cozy 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized. We have a variety of 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 experts can help you through the process.
