Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If some rooms in your house are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different reasons—but a 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 monitored by their own thermostat. Bringing together 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 home’s ductwork that direct 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 associated 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 all the lights in your home were controlled by one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same scenario as controlling the comfort of 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 typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have related heating and cooling needs.

Even if your indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be because of 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 can be ideal 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 household more comfortable and save costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your existing system.
