If your thermostat has become a hot topic for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it might be time to think about zoning your Mount Pleasant home. A zoned comfort system means you can independently control the temperature of certain areas (zones) of your home. A correctly zoned house can better the comfort of your home, and there may finally be a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Mount Pleasant.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to run 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 made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, architectural characteristics, and rooms with similar heating and cooling needs.
The added comfort that comes from a zoned home is something everyone in your family will enjoy. Because heat naturally rises, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Mount Pleasant, the higher 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 cozy with extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you have the chance to heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have specific areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can skip heating or cooling those when they aren’t being utilized.
We have a number of options that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re adding a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our professionals can help you throughout the process.
