Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than other places 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 divides your home into two or more zones that are each controlled by their own thermostat. Combining 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 regulate your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that operates your HVAC system.
Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?
Imagine how absurd and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s in essence 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 usually determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs.
Even if your house is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you could possibly have problems with hot and cold spaces. 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 use 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 household more comfortable and save costs. 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 current system. The professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C can help you no matter what your situation is.
