If regulating the thermostat is a constant fight in your the Bay Area home with the winner often determined by your utility bill, you may want to think about zoning your the Bay Area home. By installing a zoned comfort system, you can independently control the temperature of programmed areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been correctly zoned may completely end the scuffle over the thermostat by allowing you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your home can be separated into zones based on things such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural designs and rooms with like heating and cooling constraints. With a zoned home, you’ll have several thermostats through the different zones of your home. These thermostats operate dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to change the individual zones you’ve decided on throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your entire family will be thankful for the added comfort that a zoned home provides. As we we were taught in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re settling in a multiple story home, the upper levels will typically be warmer than the ground floor. A zoned home is great at contending this problem using the dampers within your ductwork to create even air distribution. Zoning your home makes hot and cold spots within your home a thing of the past. If someone in your home is consistently complaining about being hot or cold, the additional temperature control could put a stop to those complaints.
One of the greatest benefits of zoning your home is the ability to heat and cool areas based on their usage. Every home has areas that aren’t used as often and with a zoned home you can adjust heating or cooling these areas that are getting less usage.
