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 energy bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Topeka home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Topeka. A zoned home uses 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 needs, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to appreciate. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Topeka, the upper 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 means you may be able to 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 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
