If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Alice home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Alice.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, 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 Alice, the top 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 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 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 certain areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
