If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Mechanicsville home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Mechanicsville.
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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural qualities, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Mechanicsville, 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are typically hot or cold to stay comfy with extra 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 occupied 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 possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort.
