If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to think about zoning your Port St. Lucie home. A zoned comfort system allows you to independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Port St. Lucie.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate 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 desires, architectural characteristics, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can enjoy. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Port St. Lucie, the higher level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to be 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 typically hot or cold to stay comfy with additional temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can 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 bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t being used.
