We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.
Zoned cooling can be beneficial in almost every home, but is especially useful for certain conditions. Your home may be in need of a zoned cooling system if any of the following apply:
You have a two-story or multi-level house. Warm air rises while cool air sinks. So if you have more than one story, the upstairs rooms will always be hotter than the ground level or basement — unless you have a zoning system installed.
You have a room or rooms with large windows, especially if those windows face south or west. Such rooms heat up each afternoon due to the greenhouse effect: Sunlight can pass freely through the windows, but the resulting heat is trapped indoors by the glass. A zoning system can automatically make the adjustments each day to keep those rooms as cool as the rest of the house.
You have differences of opinion among family members as to what temperature feels most comfortable. With zoned cooling, each person can set their zone to the temperature they prefer.
You have certain rooms that sit unoccupied for long stretches each day, or guest areas that are empty much of the time. With a zoning system and programmable thermostats, you’ll no longer have to pay to keep those empty rooms cool. Since your air conditioner or heat pump then only has to cool part of the house at a time, your electrical bills can decrease dramatically.
