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 divides your home into two or more zones that are each regulated 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 the ductwork that direct airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that specific zone. Each of the individual thermostats is associated 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 with 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 generally determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have related heating and cooling needs.
Even if your home is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold areas. These could be because of 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’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 household more comfortable and save you money. 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 Street Heating and Cooling can help you no matter what your existing setup is.
