If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Macon home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Macon.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate 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 needs, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Macon, the higher 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfy with extra 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
We have a number of options 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 throughout the process.
