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

If control of the thermostat is a constant battle in your Cedar Rapids house with the winner usually determined by your utility bill, you may want to think about zoning your Cedar Rapids home. By using a zoned comfort system, you are able to independently maintain the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been properly zoned could finally conclude the battle over the thermostat by giving you optimal control over your home’s comfort.

Your home should be separated into zones based on conditions such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural designs and rooms with comparable heating and cooling necessities. With a zoned home, you’ll have multiple thermostats in the different zones of your home. These thermostats operate dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to change the individual zones you’ve decided on throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort.

Additional Comfort

Your entire family will be grateful for the extra comfort that a zoned home provides. As we discovered in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re residing in a multiple story home, the upper levels will usually be warmer than the ground floor. A zoned home is great at opposing 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 always complaining about being hot or cold, the additional 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 depending 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.
