If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it may be time to consider zoning your Gresham 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 Gresham.
A zoned home utilizes multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats run 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 needs, architectural features, 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 enjoy. Because heat naturally climbs, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Gresham, the higher level will usually be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to make sure there is even air distribution throughout your home. This means you may be able 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 extra temperature control.
Zoning your home means that you are also able to heat and cool rooms based on their usage as well. If you have targeted areas of your home that aren’t used as often as your main living space, you can bypass heating or cooling those when they aren’t in-use.
We have a variety of choices that can help you take control of your home’s comfort. Whether you’re buying a new system or retrofitting an existing system, our pros can help you throughout the process.
