Take Control of Your Homes Temperature with Zoned Comfort System

September 27, 2016

If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Lexington home. A zoned comfort system means you can 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 peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Lexington.

A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to regulate the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.

Additional Comfort

The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Lexington, the higher 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 typically hot or cold to stay comfortable with extra 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 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 in-use.
