“My Upstairs is Too Hot!”
May 23, 2014
This is the most common complaint that we hear during the summer months. Quite simply, it’s just not possible for one thermostat to provide ideal comfort in every room of your house.
An affordable option is to have a professional HVAC company install a zoning system. This will allow you to have different temperatures on every floor, and depending on the existing duct work in your house, it could even be possible to independently control the temperatures in every room!
A zoning system will not only provide improved comfort, but can also save you up to 20% per year in annual operating costs because you don’t have to overheat or overcool the areas that are unoccupied.
The way zoning operates is you have dampers in the duct work that open and close to control the air to different parts of the house. Each area has its own thermostat so you are finally in control of your comfort.
Most zone systems are less than $3000 to install, making them an option that is lot less expensive than adding an additional air conditioner.
