If control of the thermostat is a never-ending disagreement in your Laurel living space with the winner typically determined by your utility bill, you may want to think about zoning your Laurel home. By using a zoned comfort system, you will be able to independently maintain the temperature of predetermined areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been properly zoned could actually end the battle over the thermostat by giving you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your home should be separated into zones based on conditions such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural designs and rooms with the same heating and cooling necessities. With a zoned home, you’ll have a few thermostats throughout the different zones of your home. These thermostats operate dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to adjust the individual zones you’ve picked throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your entire family will be thankful for the extra comfort that a zoned home allows. As we discovered in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re living in a multiple story home, the upper levels will usually be warmer than the ground floor. A zoned home is great at contending 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 consistently 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.
