If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it may be time to ponder zoning your Tucson home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Tucson.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural features, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will revel in. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Tucson, the higher level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to make sure there is even air distribution throughout your home. This has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay cozy 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 certain areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
