If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your New Castle home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific 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 New Castle.
A zoned home uses 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in New Castle, the higher level will typically 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 normally hot or cold to stay cozy with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you have the chance to heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have targeted 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.
We have a number of possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort.
