Significant temperature differences may make zone heating worth it
Zone heating is a home comfort strategy that gives you the ability to have separate temperature controls in different parts of your home. Robinson Heating & Cooling can help you determine if this technique is appropriate as you look into basement remodeling and basement finishing projects.
As the term implies, zone heating enables you to adjust the temperature in specific zones or rooms of your home without affecting the temperature in a separate zone. This is especially helpful when you don’t necessarily want to consistently maintain a warmer temperature in seldom-used areas such as your basement or a bonus room above the garage.
Two-story homes have more of a tendency to have widely varying temperatures from floor to floor than ranch homes. Finishing or remodeling a basement brings another level into play, which makes zone heating and adding more attractive upgrades such as a whole house humidifier a possibility.
Zone heating comes with a variety of temperature-control options
Zone heating technologies make it easy to control the temperature in rooms that tend to be cooler than the rest of the house. As a better option than adding extra standalone heaters in rooms that tend to be cool, zone heating gives you the best control over your living environment.
There are several ways to achieve zone heating in your home:
- Each zone has its own thermostat
- Automatic dampers added to your ductwork enable the HVAC system to adjust air flow in each zone
- The HVAC system in your home will control the various zone heating areas
The ability to retrofit a zone heating system to your home depends on a variety of factors including accessibility of existing ductwork and sufficient space for additional ductwork. Call the experts at Robinson Heating & Cooling for a consultation.
