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 a 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. Bringing together 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 works because of dampers in your ductwork that aim airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that operates your HVAC system.
Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?
Imagine how nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s in essence 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 indoor space is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be a result of 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 makes sense 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 household more comfortable and save costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a wonderful opportunity to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your present system. The professionals at E.B.
