Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If some rooms in your residence are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these issues could be caused by different factors—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. Pairing zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you lower your heating and cooling bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in your ductwork that direct airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that handles your HVAC system.

Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?

Imagine how impractical and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s in essence the same situation 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 usually determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs.

Even if your indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be a result 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 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 family more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your current system.
