Would you consider yourself pretty familiar with the zoning of your house? No, we’re not talking about being a whiz of commercial versus residential or developing properties. We’re not even thinking about constructing or building at all.
Instead, we’re referring to a relatively new heating and cooling system, designed for your utmost comfort. To become a zoning expert in this sense, follow the tips below.
First, How Do The Systems Work?
As you might have guessed, a zoned heating and cooling system divides areas in your home into zones. Your thermostat controls each zone for optimal cooling and heating. The idea behind such systems is that each area of your home receives different amounts of sun and use, and therefore has distinct heating and cooling needs.
Electronically controlled dampers in the ductwork allow the system to manage how much warm and cool air flows throughout your home. It works in conjunction with each zone’s individual thermostat.
Get Comfortable with the Thermostats
Ready to hear the first trick to becoming a zoning expert? Get comfortable with the thermostats found in each zone.
Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?
The truth is the ductwork and thermostat have already done all the hard work for you. Your job is to adjust the temperature as you see fit and take all the credit for your zoning genius, of course.
If you’d rather kick back and ignore the thermostat altogether, that’s also an option. The thermostat takes charge of the air ducts’ electronic dampers. These dampers are opened and closed to manage how much air is coming through in each zone.
Enjoy Better Temperature Distribution
Have you ever experienced that particular phenomenon where one room in the house feels several degrees colder than the other? Or maybe your upstairs gets boiling hot while the downstairs is the perfect temperature?
Uneven temperatures are a problem in many homes. With a zoning system, you’ll make that issue a thing of the past. With your house divided into separate areas, each room will reach the ideal temperature through optimized air flow.
Your task as the zoning expert is to merely enjoy a home free of cold and hot spots.
Settle Those Fights for Thermostat Control (Once and For All!)
Families of all sizes have experienced a good thermostat fight or two. Traditional heating and cooling systems do nothing to stop squabbles over a few degrees up or down on the thermostat panel. In fact, they only seem to encourage them.
Matters get especially tricky when the squabblers are fighting to control the temperature for the whole house. One room may very well feel much colder or hotter than the other. The only solution is for one person to accept being uncomfortable. Clearly, that’s not much of a solution at all.
Your zoned heating and cooling system was made to meet the temperature needs of each family member. With this system, everyone can be as toasty or as chilly as they wish.
A bonus? If someone gets up in the middle of the night to tinker with the thermostat, it won’t affect the temperature outside of their zone. That means you, as the resident zoning expert, can rest undisturbed, without having to mediate yet another thermostat debate.
