If control of the thermostat is a never-ending battle in your Des Moines house with the winner often determined by your utility bill, you may want to contemplate zoning your Des Moines home. By using a zoned comfort system, you will be able to independently maintain the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been properly zoned might 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 features and sections with the same heating and cooling requirements. With a zoned home, you’ll have several thermostats in the different zones of your home. These thermostats operate dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to change the individual zones you’ve decided on throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your entire family will be grateful for the extra comfort that a zoned home allows. As we learned in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re settling in a multiple story home, the upper levels will usually 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 constantly complaining about being hot or cold, the added 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 depending 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.
