By utilizing a zoned comfort system, you can independently manage the temperature of predetermined areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been accurately zoned could finally conclude the skirmish over the thermostat by allowing you additional control over your home’s comfort. Your home will be separated into zones based on conditions such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural designs and sections with like heating and cooling requirements. With a zoned home, you’ll have several thermostats throughout the different zones of your home. These thermostats control dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to adjust the individual zones you’ve chosen throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort. Additional Comfort Your entire family will be thankful for the added comfort that a zoned home provides. As we learned in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re living in a multiple story home, the upper levels will often be warmer than the ground floor. A zoned home is great at opposing this problem using the dampers within your ductwork to create even air distribution. Zoning your home makes hot and cold spots within your home a thing of the past. If someone in your home is constantly complaining about being hot or cold, the extra temperature control could put a stop to those complaints.
