If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to ponder zoning your Hudsonville home. A zoned comfort system means you can 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 Hudsonville.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle 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 features, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Hudsonville, the upper 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 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 comfortable with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have targeted 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 a number of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you throughout the process.
