If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Auburn home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Auburn.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, 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 will appreciate. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Auburn, the upper level will usually 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 cozy with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can 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 being used.
We have a number of possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re installing a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you during the process.
