If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to think about zoning your Marshalltown home. A zoned comfort system allows 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 Marshalltown.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to control 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural qualities, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Marshalltown, 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 usually hot or cold to stay comfortable with added 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 targeted 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 number of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you through the process.
