Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your home are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different causes—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 regulated by their own thermostat. Combining 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 because of dampers in your home’s ductwork that aim airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that specific 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 impractical and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled with 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 personalized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are generally determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your house is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may 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 can be ideal to have 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 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 current system.
