If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to consider zoning your McMurray home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in McMurray.
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 created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural qualities, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in McMurray, the upper level will normally 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 can 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 targeted 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 number of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you during the process. If you have any questions about zoning your home or any home comfort needs give Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing a call at 724-370-0141.
