Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Crystal Lake home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Crystal Lake. A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run 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 desires, architectural qualities, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will enjoy. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Crystal Lake, the top level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to be 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 comfortable 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 occupied as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used. We have many 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 professionals can help you through the process.
