Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to think about zoning your Lake Charles home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific 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 Lake Charles. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Lake Charles, the top level will typically 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 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 cozy 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 bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use. We have many possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort.
