Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a few rooms in your residence are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these issues could be caused by different factors—but your 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 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 because of dampers in the ductwork that direct airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected 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 each and every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same synopsis 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 indoor space is properly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be because 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 can be ideal 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 occupants more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your current system. The professionals at Air Service Co. can help you no matter what your situation is.
