If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to think about zoning your San Jose home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be peace between Team Hot and Team Cold in San Jose.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats operate the dampers within your duct work to adjust the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are broken down according to things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal desires, architectural qualities, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family ought to appreciate. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in San Jose, the upper level will normally be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to ensure there is even air distribution throughout your home. This can make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are typically hot or cold to stay cozy with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you can heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have certain 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 in-use.
