If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to think about zoning your McHenry home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific 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 McHenry.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural characteristics, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can appreciate. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in McHenry, the higher level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to make 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 usually hot or cold to stay comfortable with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have specific 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 being utilized.
We have a variety of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you during the process.
