Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If some rooms in your residence are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different factors—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 monitored 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 using dampers in the ductwork that leads airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that specific 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 all the lights in your home were controlled by one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same scenario 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 typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have related heating and cooling needs.

Even if your home is properly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be due to 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’s logical 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 occupants more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system. The professionals at E.B. Air, LLC can help you no matter what your current system is.
