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 energy bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your Scottsboro home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Scottsboro. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to run 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 preferences, architectural qualities, 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 can enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Scottsboro, the top level will usually 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 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used. We have a number 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 professionals can help you through the process.
