If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your Ellsworth home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Ellsworth.
A zoned home utilizes 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Ellsworth, the top level will normally 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 means you may be able 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 additional 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
