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 energy bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Dallas home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Dallas. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to control 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 needs, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The extra 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 Dallas, the upper level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to be 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 comfy 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 occupied as often as your main living space, you can bypass 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 throughout the process.
