If managing the thermostat is a constant fight in your Des Moines home with the winner typically determined by your utility bill, you may want to think about zoning your Des Moines home. By using a zoned comfort system, you will be able to independently manage the temperature of programmed areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been correctly zoned may finally resolve the scuffle over the thermostat by providing you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your home can be broken down into zones based on conditions such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural features and sections with like heating and cooling necessities. With a zoned home, you’ll have a few thermostats through the different zones of your home. These thermostats control dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to change the individual zones you’ve chosen throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your entire family will appreciate the added comfort that a zoned home gives. As we we were taught in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re living in a multiple story home, the upper levels will typically be warmer than the ground floor. A zoned home is great at opposing this problem using the dampers within your ductwork to create even air distribution. Zoning your home makes hot and cold spots within your home a thing of the past. If someone in your home is always complaining about being hot or cold, the extra temperature control could put a stop to those complaints.
One of the main benefits of zoning your home is the ability to heat and cool areas based on their usage. Every home has areas that aren’t used as often and with a zoned home you can adjust heating or cooling these areas that are getting less usage.
