If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Westerville home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Westerville.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural features, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will enjoy. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Westerville, the top level will usually 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are typically hot or cold to stay comfortable with extra 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 certain 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 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 experts can help you throughout the process.
