The only place where the temperature matches the thermostat is at the thermostat.
Different areas of your house have different temperature needs as do individual family members. What may be cool to one member may be warm to another. Heat rises up, leaving the main floor cool and second floor rooms hot. Windows soak up the sun making certain rooms feel hot while others feel too cool.
Large glass expanses, vaulted ceilings, lofts and various other architectural elements can cause even more problems. Expecting one thermostat in a single room to control the entire house is asking the impossible.
Enter Zoned Comfort Control.
This is a system of more than one thermostat, electronically connected to a control panel which operates a number of dampers in your air and heating system. The air is then distributed as needed to various rooms.
This system can be installed in new or existing homes to help you achieve total indoor comfort. There is also little service required of the system except for changes in living habits that may require minor adjustments from time to time.
