Do I need a zoned home?03/29/2016 Do I Need a Zoned Home? If some rooms in your home are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches 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. Combining 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 the ductwork that leads airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in each of the zones with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that handles your HVAC system. Is A Zoned Home Right for Me? Imagine how impractical and inefficient it would be if all the lights in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s essentially 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 tailored control over every zone of your home. Your zones are typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have identical heating and cooling needs. Even if your house is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you may 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 makes sense to use separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send lower amounts of heat upstairs. Having your home zoned will keep you and your occupants more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating can help you no matter what your existing setup is.
