If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Lincoln home. A zoned comfort system means you can 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 Lincoln.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to appreciate. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Lincoln, the top level will normally 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 cozy with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can 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 bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
