If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to think about zoning your Wyandotte home. A zoned comfort system allows you to 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 Wyandotte.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control 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 desires, architectural characteristics, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Wyandotte, the higher level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to make 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 typically hot or cold to stay cozy with added 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 certain 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 in-use.
