If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to think about zoning your Albuquerque home. A zoned comfort system enables 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 peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Albuquerque.
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 created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural characteristics, and areas 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 rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Albuquerque, the upper level will normally 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 means you may be able to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay comfy with added 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 occupied as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
