Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different causes—but the ideal 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 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 works using dampers in your home’s ductwork that direct 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 exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that operates 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 using one switch. Well, that’s essentially 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 personalized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are usually 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 could still have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be due to architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We understand that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it’s logical to use 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 family more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your present system.
