Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a couple rooms in your residence are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different reasons—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 lower your heating and cooling bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in your ductwork that leads airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that particular zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that handles 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 using one switch. Well, that’s essentially 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 tailored control over every zone of your home. Your zones are usually determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs.

Even if your home is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spaces. 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 makes sense to use separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send reduced amounts of heat upstairs.

Having your home zoned will keep you and your family 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 may consider doing a retrofit your current system. The professionals at True Heating & Cooling can help you no matter what your situation is.
