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 issues could be caused by different causes—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. Pairing 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 your ductwork that aim airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that particular 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 nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s basically the same situation as controlling the comfort of 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 similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your home is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold spots. 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 lower amounts of 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 a wonderful opportunity to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system.
