Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature with Zoned Comfort System09/27/2016If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Augusta home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. A properly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Augusta. A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs. Additional Comfort The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Augusta, the top 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 can 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 additional 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 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 variety of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you during the process. If you have any questions about zoning your home or any home comfort needs give Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 706-722-5304 or schedule an appointment with us online.
