If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Pocatello 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 Pocatello.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural features, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra 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 Pocatello, 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 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 targeted areas of your home that aren’t utilized as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a number of 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 pros can help you during the process.
