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 monthly bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Utica home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Utica. A zoned home takes advantage of 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 desires, architectural features, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Utica, the higher level will normally 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 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 comfy with additional temperature control. Zoning your home means that you can 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 bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use. 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 during the process.
