Take Control of Your Homes Temperature with Zoned Comfort System

If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to consider zoning your Greater Richmond home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Greater Richmond.

A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural features, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.

Additional Comfort

The added 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 Greater Richmond, 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 typically hot or cold to stay comfy with additional 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 utilized 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 possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you throughout the process.
