If your thermostat has become a battleground for Team Hot vs. Team Cold with the referee being your monthly bill, it could be time to consider zoning your Anchorage home. A zoned comfort system enables you to 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 harmony between Team Hot and Team Cold in Anchorage.
A zoned home takes advantage of multiple thermostats to run the different zones of your home. The thermostats control the dampers within your duct work to regulate the air flow to your designated zones. Zones are made by things such as the usage of room, a family’s personal preferences, 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 can revel in. Because heat naturally goes up, if you’re living in one of the endless multiple story homes in Anchorage, the higher level will typically be warmer than the lower levels. To counter this, the dampers within your ductwork will open and close to be sure 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 normally hot or cold to stay comfortable with additional 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 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 used.
