If 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 West Jefferson home. A zoned comfort system means you can 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 West Jefferson.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural qualities, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra 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 West Jefferson, the upper level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to ensure 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 usually hot or cold to stay comfy with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can 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 get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a number of choices 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 during the process.
