If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Moline 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 Moline.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can appreciate. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Moline, the upper level will usually 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfy with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you are also able to heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have certain areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
