If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Beckley and Mount Hope home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Beckley and Mount Hope.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control 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 rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Beckley and Mount Hope, the top level will normally 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are typically hot or cold to stay cozy with added temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have certain areas of your home that aren’t utilized as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a number of possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort.
