Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a couple rooms in your house are more comfortable than other places 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 allocates your home into two or more zones that are each monitored by their own thermostat. Combining 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 works using dampers in the ductwork that direct airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control 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 absurd and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s basically the same situation as controlling the comfort of all the rooms 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 typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your home is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spots. 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 makes sense 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 occupants more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to consider a zoned heating and cooling system.
