Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these issues could be caused by different causes—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 monitored by their own thermostat. Combining zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you save on your heating and cooling bill.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system utilizes dampers in your home’s ductwork that leads airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked 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 using one switch. Well, that’s essentially 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 tailored 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 house is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold areas. 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 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 household more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your current system. The professionals at Comfort Zone Inc can help you no matter what your situation is.
