Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a couple rooms in your residence are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different factors—but the ideal 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 save on your heating and cooling bill.
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 control your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that specific zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that handles your HVAC system.
Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?
Imagine how nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled by 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 personalized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are generally determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical 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 a result of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We understand that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it can be ideal to have separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send less heat upstairs.
Having your home zoned will keep you and your family more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC can help you no matter what your existing setup is.
