If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your utility bill, it could be time to think about zoning your Wausau home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of specific areas (zones) of your home. An appropriately zoned house can improve the comfort of your home, and there may finally be harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Wausau.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats run 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 preferences, architectural features, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The additional comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family can revel in. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Wausau, the top level will usually 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 has the chance to make hot and cold spots a thing of the past. They also allow family members that are normally hot or cold to stay comfy with added 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 utilized as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
We have a variety of possibilities that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you throughout the process.
