If regulating the thermostat is a constant fight in your Portland house with the winner usually determined by your utility bill, you may want to contemplate zoning your Portland home. By using a zoned comfort system, you can independently manage the temperature of programmed areas (zones) of your home. A home that has been correctly zoned may finally end the skirmish over the thermostat by giving you additional control over your home’s comfort.
Your home can be broken down into zones based on things such as: usage of room, personal preferences, architectural designs and areas with comparable heating and cooling constraints. With a zoned home, you’ll have a few thermostats throughout the different zones of your home. These thermostats control dampers throughout your ducts and you’re able to change the individual zones you’ve picked throughout your home giving you more control over your home’s comfort.
Your entire family will be grateful for the additional comfort that a zoned home gives. As we learned in science class, heat naturally rises, so if you’re residing in a multiple story home, the upper levels will usually be warmer than the ground floor. A zoned home is great at contending this problem using the dampers within your ductwork to create even air distribution. Zoning your home makes hot and cold spots within your home a thing of the past. If someone in your home is constantly complaining about being hot or cold, the added temperature control could put a stop to those complaints.
One of the major benefits of zoning your home is the ability to heat and cool areas depending on their usage. Every home has areas that aren’t used as often and with a zoned home you can adjust heating or cooling these areas that are getting less usage.
