If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Front Royal home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Front Royal.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control 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 preferences, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added 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 Front Royal, the higher level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to be 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 normally hot or cold to stay cozy with added 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 used as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
We have many choices 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 through the process.
