If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Cottonwood home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Cottonwood.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate 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 preferences, architectural qualities, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Cottonwood, 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay cozy with additional 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 used 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 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 professionals can help you throughout the process.
