Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If some rooms in your house are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different factors—but your 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 controlled by their own thermostat. Bringing together 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 utilizes dampers in your ductwork that aim airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that particular 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 nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if each and every light 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 similar heating and cooling needs.
Even if your indoor space is properly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spots. 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’s logical to operate 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 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 Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning can help you no matter what your situation is.
