If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it might be time to ponder zoning your Racine home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Racine.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Racine, the upper level will normally 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay comfortable with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have specific 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 being used.
We have a number of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort.
