If your thermostat has become a constant back-and-forth for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your energy bill, it might be time to ponder zoning your Long Island 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 a truce between Team Hot and Team Cold in Long Island.
A zoned home uses multiple thermostats to control 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 qualities, and areas with similar heating and cooling needs.
The extra 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 Long Island, the higher 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 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 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 being utilized.
