Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If some rooms in your residence are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different factors—but the ideal 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 save on your heating and cooling bill.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system utilizes dampers in your home’s ductwork that leads airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is associated to the control panel that operates your HVAC system.

Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?

Imagine how nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled by one switch. Well, that’s basically 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 customized 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 home is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold areas. These could be a result of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. You know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it’s logical to operate separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send reduced amounts of heat upstairs.

Having your home zoned will keep you and your occupants more comfortable and save costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your present system.
