Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a couple rooms in your residence are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different reasons—but a 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 monitored by their own thermostat. Combining 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 works because of dampers in the ductwork that direct 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 associated 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 every light in your home were controlled by one switch. Well, that’s in essence the same situation as controlling the comfort of all the rooms in your home with a single thermostat. A zoned heating and cooling system gives you customized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are usually 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 areas. These could be because 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 can be ideal 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 family more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your existing system. The professionals at The Frazier Company can help you no matter what your situation is.
