Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to consider zoning your the Main Line 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 harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in the Main Line. A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural features, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to enjoy. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in the Main Line, the top 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 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 cozy with extra temperature control. Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have targeted 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 in-use.
