Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these issues could be caused by different causes—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 regulated by their own thermostat. Bringing together zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you reduce your energy bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in the ductwork that aim airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that specific 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 nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same synopsis as controlling the comfort of each and every room in your home with a single thermostat. A zoned heating and cooling system gives you tailored control over every zone of your home. Your zones are usually determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs.

Even if your indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may 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 occupants more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Innovative Mechanical, LLC can help you no matter what your current system is.
