If 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 West Columbia home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in West Columbia.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to control 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional 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 West Columbia, the upper 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 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 cozy with added 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
