Do I need a zoned home?03/29/2016 Do I Need a Zoned Home? If a couple rooms in your home are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different factors—but the ideal 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 monitored by their own thermostat. Combining 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 using dampers in your home’s ductwork that leads airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is associated to the control panel that handles your HVAC system. Is A Zoned Home Right for Me? Imagine how absurd and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s essentially 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 customized 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 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. You know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it’s logical 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 family more comfortable and save costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Air-Dynamics Inc can help you no matter what your situation is.
