Subscribe to our RSS Feed Can't Quite Get in the Comfort Zone? A Zoning System Could Be the Solution

Monday, November 17, 2014

Want to save money on heating and cooling costs while boosting comfort at the same time? What you need is a zoning system, the smarter way to keep your home comfortable all year round. Learn more about zoning and decide if it’s right for your home.

What Is a Zoning System?

Imagine if your home had only one light switch. It seems silly to picture a fully lit home when only one person is there. It would be an incredible waste of energy and money. However, this is exactly how heating and cooling works in most homes. Regardless of what rooms are in use or how their conditioning needs differ, the entire space is heated and cooled equally.

A zoning system gets rid of this inefficiency by introducing multiple thermostats for different sections of your home. Dampers in the ductwork control airflow and condition your home exactly the way you need it, when you need it.

When Does Zoning Make Sense?

Any home can benefit from a zoning system, but some situations are especially suitable for the upgrade. Specific home features that benefit most from zoning include multiple stories, vaulted ceilings, sprawling windows, an above-garage room, basement, finished attic, loft and sunroom.

Benefits of a Zoning System

By incorporating zoning into your existing central heating and air conditioning system, you enjoy a more comfortable indoor environment. It’s easy to achieve your goal of a more even temperature in every room with a zoning system. Plus, you can finally stop the battle of the thermostat between Dad in his sweltering upstairs office and the kids in the freezing cold basement.

You also experience lower energy bills. Zone the bedrooms and public living areas separately to heat and cool only the areas you need depending on the time of day.

Longer system life is the final benefit. When you only condition sections of your home at a time, you lower the strain on your HVAC equipment and help it last longer with fewer repairs.
