Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If some rooms in your residence are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches 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 monitored by their own thermostat. Bringing together 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 because of dampers in the 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 linked 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 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 tailored 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 indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold areas. These could be a result of 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 can be ideal to use 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 you money. 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 existing system.
