Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your Elmhurst home. A zoned comfort system enables 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 Elmhurst. A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate 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 desires, architectural qualities, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Elmhurst, the top 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 typically hot or cold to stay comfortable with additional 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 possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you through the process.
