Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a couple rooms in your residence are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different reasons—but your solution could be a zoned home comfort system. A zoned heating and cooling system divides your home into two or more zones that are each controlled by their own thermostat. Combining zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you reduce your energy bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in your ductwork that aim airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that specific zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that runs your HVAC system.

Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?

Imagine how absurd and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same synopsis as controlling the comfort of each and every room in your home with a single thermostat. A zoned heating and cooling system gives you personalized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are generally determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your house is properly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be because of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We understand that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it makes sense to operate separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send less heat upstairs.

Having your home zoned will keep you and your family more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your present system.
