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 may be time to ponder zoning your Orange County home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Orange County. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate 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 qualities, and areas 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 climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Orange County, the higher level will usually 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 means you may be able to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay comfy with additional 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 occupied 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 possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re installing a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you during the process.
