Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If some rooms in your home are more comfortable than others 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 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 save on your heating and cooling bill.

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 each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that particular 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 impractical and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same scenario as controlling the comfort of all the rooms 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 generally determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have related heating and cooling needs.

Even if your home is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be due to 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 makes sense to operate 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 family more comfortable and save you money. 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 current system. The professionals at Dynamic Comfort Solutions can help you no matter what your situation is.
