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 problems could be caused by different factors—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. 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 utilizes dampers in your home’s ductwork that leads airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate 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 impractical and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same situation as controlling the comfort of every room 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 typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs.
Even if your house is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be due to architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. You know 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 less heat upstairs.
Having your home zoned will keep you and your family more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system.
