Do I need a zoned home?03/29/2016 Do I Need a Zoned Home? If some rooms in your house are more comfortable than different rooms 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 allocates your home into two or more zones that are each controlled by their own thermostat. Pairing 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 utilizes dampers in the ductwork that aim airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that operates 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 by one switch. Well, that’s basically the same synopsis as controlling the comfort of all the rooms 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 similar heating and cooling needs. Even if your home is properly 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 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 lower amounts of 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 wonderful opportunity to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your current system.
