If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Rockford home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain 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 Rockford.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run 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 needs, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Rockford, the higher level will normally 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 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 extra 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 used as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
