Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your home are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these problems 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 regulated by their own thermostat. Pairing 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 the ductwork that leads airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked 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 each and every light in your home were controlled using 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 tailored 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 indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spots. 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 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 family more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system.
