If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Tucson home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Tucson.
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 control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to enjoy. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Tucson, the top 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 has the chance to 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 added 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 used as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
