Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Plainfield home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Plainfield. A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to control 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 characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Plainfield, the higher level will usually 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfy with extra 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 get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use. We have many possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you throughout the process.
