If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to ponder zoning your Newton home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Newton.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats run 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 needs, architectural characteristics, and spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Newton, the upper level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to be 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 normally hot or cold to stay comfy with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can 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 bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
