Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a couple rooms in your house are more comfortable than different rooms 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 splits your home into two or more zones that are each controlled by their own thermostat. Pairing 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 utilizes dampers in the ductwork that leads airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that exact 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 every light in your home were controlled with 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 tailored control over every zone of your home. Your zones are generally determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your house is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be a result of 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’s logical 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 family more comfortable and save costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your current system. The professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C can help you no matter what your existing setup is.
