Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it might be time to consider zoning your Olathe home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Olathe. A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural qualities, and areas 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 Olathe, the top 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay cozy with extra 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use. We have a variety 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 pros can help you during the process.
