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 problems 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 regulated by their own thermostat. Pairing 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 your home’s 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 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 impractical and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same scenario 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 home is properly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold spots. These could be because 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’s logical 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 occupants more comfortable and save costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your current system. The professionals at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC can help you no matter what your current system is.
