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 ponder zoning your Columbia home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Columbia.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control 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 preferences, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Columbia, 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 normally hot or cold to stay comfortable with added 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 occupied as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
