If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to ponder zoning your Wisconsin Rapids home. A zoned comfort system means you can 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 harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Wisconsin Rapids.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to regulate 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 qualities, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added 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 Wisconsin Rapids, the top level will normally 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay comfortable 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 specific 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 in-use.
