If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Libertyville home. A zoned comfort system enables you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in Libertyville.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to regulate 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 extra 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 Libertyville, the top 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 can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are usually 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
We have a variety of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you throughout the process.
