Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System

If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your McMurray home. A zoned comfort system means you can 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 McMurray.

A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to regulate the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.

Additional Comfort

The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in McMurray, the upper level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to ensure 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 typically hot or cold to stay cozy with additional 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 certain areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can get around 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 adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you through the process.
