Take Control of Your Homes Temperature with Zoned Comfort System

September 27, 2016

If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Drexel Hill home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Drexel Hill.

A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle 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 spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.

Additional Comfort

The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to appreciate. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Drexel Hill, the upper level will normally 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 typically hot or cold to stay cozy with extra 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
