Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different reasons—but a 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. Bringing together zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you lower your heating and cooling bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in your ductwork that direct airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in each of the zones 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 absurd and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same scenario as controlling the comfort of 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 home is properly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be due to architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We all 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 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 look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Air Alliance Team can help you no matter what your situation is.
