If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Lafayette home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Lafayette.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural features, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to revel in. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Lafayette, the top level will typically 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 means you may be able to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfortable with extra 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 targeted areas of your home that aren’t utilized 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.
