Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a couple rooms in your home are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these issues could be caused by different causes—but your solution could be a zoned home comfort system. A zoned heating and cooling system divides your home into two or more zones that are each monitored 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 your home’s ductwork that direct airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that runs your HVAC system.
Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?
Imagine how nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled by one switch. Well, that’s basically 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 personalized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are typically 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 spaces. These could be due to architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We all know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it makes sense to use separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send lower amounts of heat upstairs.
Having your home zoned will keep you and your household more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Tri County Climate Control LLC can help you no matter what your current system is.
