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 utility bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your Abilene home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Abilene. A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats run 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 needs, architectural qualities, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Abilene, the upper level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to ensure 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 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 used as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used. We have a variety of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you during the process.
