Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different causes—but your solution could be a zoned home comfort system. A zoned heating and cooling system allocates your home into two or more zones that are each controlled by their own thermostat. Bringing together 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 utilizes dampers in the ductwork that direct airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is associated 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 every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s in essence the same synopsis as controlling the comfort of all the rooms 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 typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs.

Even if your indoor space is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be a result of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We all know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it can be ideal to have 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 occupants 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 even retrofit your current system.
