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 may be time to consider zoning your Keokuk home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A properly 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 utilizes 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Keokuk, the upper 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 comfortable 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 used as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized. We have a number of choices 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 through the process.
