HVAC zoning is a concept that enables different areas of your home to be heated or cooled individually. It can be as simple as dividing the sleeping areas from the living area, or as complex as you need. Zoned HVAC systems are easy to control from a central unit or via dedicated thermostats in each area. If any of the signs below apply to you, it’s a good idea to look into zoning your existing heating and cooling system in order to maximize your comfort and reduce the amount of your energy bills.
Conflicts Occur at the Thermostat
- Finding the perfect temperature to satisfy everyone in your home can seem like an endless battle. People have different comfort levels, and there is not always one temperature that each member of your family will agree on. Instead of an uncomfortable compromise that pleases no one, dividing your home into zones can create pockets of paradise for every family member.
Energy Bills Are too High
- Unsteady, steep energy bills can be frustrating when you’re trying to predict heating costs and budget your expenses. Changes in your energy bill can be caused by uneven heating and cooling distribution and attempts to correct it with one thermostat. Zoning can rectify this by adjusting the amount of conditioned air being delivered to any given area. Switching to a zoned system allows you to decide exactly where and when energy is used to heat or cool your home.
Only Certain Areas Are Occupied
- It’s unlikely that every room in your home will be occupied over the course of a full day. Using a single thermostat means you’re heating or cooling your entire house, which can be highly inefficient if you’re just in one area. Splitting your home into zones that separate the sleeping areas can offer individual comfort without wasting energy on unoccupied areas of the house.
Zoned HVAC systems carry several benefits, from lowering your energy bills to providing the precise levels of comfort for everybody in your home.
