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 headaches could be caused by different reasons—but your 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 save on your heating and cooling bill.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system utilizes dampers in your home’s ductwork that aim airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected 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 situation as controlling the comfort of all the rooms in your home with a single thermostat. A zoned heating and cooling system gives you customized 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 indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could still 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 have 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 even retrofit your current system.
