If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it might be time to consider zoning your Franklin Lakes home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can boost the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Franklin Lakes.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to handle the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to control the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are created by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal needs, architectural qualities, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can revel in. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Franklin Lakes, the higher level will typically 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 usually 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 specific areas of your home that aren’t occupied as often as your main living space, you can get around heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
We have a variety of possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort.
