As with many homes, you’ve probably noticed the issue of fluctuating
temperatures depending on the room you are in or the floor you are on
within your house. This can be very frustrating, especially when you are
unable to achieve the ideal comfort and energy savings you would like.
There are many factors that can contribute to this issue, including sunlight,
room usage, and even structural design. So what is the solution? HVAC
zoning may be able to give you the control you are looking for and the
comfort you desire.
What exactly does HVAC zoning do? When you set up system zoning, you will
have several thermostats installed that are connected to a main control
panel. These thermostats read the temperatures of their specific rooms,
closing or opening dampers within your ductwork depending on whether you
need a room to be warmer or cooler. Specific room or area temperatures
can be set in stone or made to be flexible in order to meet your overall
home comfort goals.
Is HVAC zoning right for my home?
Not only does HVAC zoning allow you to control inconsistent temperatures
within different areas of your home, but it also enables you to heat or
cool individual bedrooms according to each individual’s desired
setting. This allows for personalization of your
HVAC system, rather than providing a blanket solution.
Other benefits of HVAC zoning include the following:
- Can help save you money on energy bills
- Enhanced flexibility and convenience within your home
- Often improves and extends the life of your HVAC system
While many different style homes can benefit from having HVAC zoning installed,
there are certain situations where homeowners may be more likely to consider
this solution. For example, if you have a home with multiple levels, a
large floor plan, a finished basement or attic, numerous unused guest
rooms, large windows, and other similar features, zoning can be very helpful.
