If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it might be time to consider zoning your Houston home. A zoned comfort system allows 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 Houston.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats run the dampers within your duct work to adjust 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 spaces with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Houston, the higher level will normally 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 means you may be able to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually hot or cold to stay comfortable with extra 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 occupied as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
