If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Kearney home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Kearney.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural qualities, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Kearney, the higher 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 usually hot or cold to stay comfortable with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have certain areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a number of choices 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 throughout the process.
