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 may be time to consider zoning your Genoa home. A zoned comfort system enables you to 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 peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Genoa. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and areas 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 appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Genoa, 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 can 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 additional temperature control. Zoning your home means that you are also able 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 skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use. We have a number of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you throughout the process.
