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 Tuscaloosa home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Tuscaloosa. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made 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 additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can appreciate. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Tuscaloosa, the upper 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfortable 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 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 many options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re installing a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you through the process.
