If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Saint Petersburg home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific 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 Saint Petersburg.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, 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 rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Saint Petersburg, 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay cozy 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
We have a number of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re installing a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you through the process.
