Take Control of Your Comfort With a Zoning System

zoning systemsWith a standard heating and cooling system, a single thermostat is used to regulate temperatures throughout an entire house. This is usually ineffective since rooms in most homes have different temperature needs. In addition, rooms that have been added on or that are on upper floors may be warmer or colder than the rest of the house. The result in these instances is wasted energy and a less comfortable home. If this describes your home, a zoning system may be an effective solution.

How Zoning Systems Work

Zoned HVAC systems have multiple thermostats instead of the traditional system’s one thermostat. Each thermostat is connected to a main panel that runs your HVAC system, and each controls a different area — or zone — of the home. Homeowners can set individual thermostats to different temperatures so each zone is exactly as warm or cool as you need it.

Benefits of Zoned HVAC Systems

  • Comfort – Each member may have their own temperature requirements and a zoned system allows them to set each zone accordingly.
  • Improved energy efficiency – A zoning system has the potential to reduce utility spending by as much as 30 percent, since you spend less on energy when you don’t heat or cool the whole house.
  • Longer system life – The work that the system must do to keep the home comfortable is reduced, which means the stresses placed on it are likewise reduced. Less work can add years to the usable life of your HVAC equipment.
