If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it might be time to consider zoning your Dresden home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Dresden.
A zoned home uses 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Dresden, the upper level will normally be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to make 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 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 occupied as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
We have a number of options 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. If you have any questions about zoning your home or any home comfort needs give McFadden Heating & Cooling a call at 1-866-781-0111.
