If 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 ponder zoning your Dayton home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Dayton.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to regulate 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 areas 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 goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Dayton, the top level will typically 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 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 have the chance to 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 skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a number of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re installing a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you through the process.
