If 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 think about zoning your Keokuk 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 Keokuk.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to control 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.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Keokuk, the top level will normally 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 means you may be able to 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 added 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 targeted 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.
