Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If some rooms in your house are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these issues could be caused by different causes—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 controlled by their own thermostat. Combining 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 works because of dampers in your home’s ductwork that direct airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each of the zones 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 impractical and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s basically the same situation as controlling the comfort of each and 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 related heating and cooling needs.

Even if your house is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be due to 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’s logical to operate 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 household more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your present system. The professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating can help you no matter what your situation is.
