If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Saint Petersburg home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Saint Petersburg.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to control 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 broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural characteristics, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Saint Petersburg, the upper 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 has the chance 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 extra 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 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 options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you throughout the process.
