Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Excelsior Springs home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Excelsior Springs. 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 regulate the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural features, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Excelsior Springs, the upper level will normally 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 normally hot or cold to stay comfy 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use. We have a variety of possibilities 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.
