If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it might be time to ponder zoning your Opelika home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Opelika.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to handle 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 needs, architectural features, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added 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 Opelika, the top level will typically 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay cozy with added temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you have the chance to 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.
