If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Cedar Rapids home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Cedar Rapids.
A zoned home utilizes 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 areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Cedar Rapids, the upper 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 can 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 are also able 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.
