Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a few rooms in your residence are more comfortable than others 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 regulated by their own thermostat. Combining zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you lower your heating and cooling bills.
How Does It Work?
A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in the 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 particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that handles your HVAC system.
Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?
Imagine how nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s basically the same synopsis 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 identical heating and cooling needs.
Even if your indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold areas. These could be because of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We all know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it can be ideal to operate 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 occupants more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your current system.
