Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your Bakersfield home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of designated areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Bakersfield. A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to handle 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 spaces with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort 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 Bakersfield, the higher level will usually 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 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 additional 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 occupied 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 experts can help you throughout the process.
