If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Columbus home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Columbus.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, 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 be sure there is even air distribution throughout your home. This can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfy with added temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you have the chance 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 get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
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 through the process.
