Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016 If control of the thermostat is a never-ending disagreement in your Erie home with the winner often determined by your utility bill, you may want to think about zoning your Erie home. By using a zoned comfort system, you are able to independently manage the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been properly zoned may actually conclude the battle over the thermostat by giving you additional control over your home’s comfort. Your home should be divided into zones based on conditions such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural features and areas with the same heating and cooling necessities. 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 change 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 we were taught 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 combating 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 consistently complaining about being hot or cold, the extra temperature control could put a stop to those complaints. One of the major benefits of zoning your home is the ability to heat and cool areas based on their usage. Every home has areas that aren’t used as often and with a zoned home you can adjust heating or cooling these areas that are getting less usage.
