If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Delray Beach home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Delray Beach.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to regulate the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural qualities, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will enjoy. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Delray Beach, the upper 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 typically 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 certain areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a number of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our experts can help you throughout the process.
