If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it might be time to consider zoning your Shelby home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Shelby.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to handle 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural features, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can revel in. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Shelby, 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 comfortable with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you have the chance to heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have specific 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 options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you throughout the process.
