Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If a few rooms in your house are more comfortable than different rooms or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different causes—but your 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. Pairing 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 home’s ductwork that direct airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that runs your HVAC system.
Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?
Imagine how nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s basically the same synopsis 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 typically 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 due to 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 makes sense to have 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 costs. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your current system. The professionals at Mayeuxs AC & Heating can help you no matter what your existing setup is.
