Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a couple rooms in your home are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different reasons—but a solution could be a zoned home comfort system. A zoned heating and cooling system splits 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 lower your heating and cooling bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in the ductwork that aim airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is associated 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 every light in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s in essence 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 identical heating and cooling needs.

Even if your house is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be because 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 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 household more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system.
