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 monthly bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Longview home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated 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 Longview. 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 created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Longview, 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized. We have a variety 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.
