If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Menomonie and western Wisconsin home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Menomonie and western Wisconsin.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural qualities, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Menomonie and western Wisconsin, the higher 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 means you may be able to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are typically hot or cold to stay comfy with extra 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 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 in-use.
We have a number of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re installing a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you during the process.
