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 problems could be caused by different reasons—but the ideal solution could be a zoned home comfort system. A zoned heating and cooling system allocates 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 utilizes dampers in your home’s ductwork that leads airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that specific zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that runs your HVAC system.

Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?

Imagine how absurd and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s in essence the same scenario as controlling the comfort of 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 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 spots. These could be due to 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 reduced 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 look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your present system. The professionals at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia can help you no matter what your existing setup is.
