Do I Need a Zoned Home?
If some rooms in your house are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these headaches could be caused by different causes—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 controlled by their own thermostat. Combining zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you reduce your energy bills.
How Does It Work?
A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in your home’s ductwork that leads airflow to the selected zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that exact zone. Each of the individual thermostats is associated 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 by one switch. Well, that’s in essence 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 personalized 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 house is perfectly insulated and well-constructed, you could still have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be due to architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. You know 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 lower amounts of heat upstairs.
Having your home zoned will keep you and your family more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s a great time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your present system. The professionals at Premium Air Services LLC can help you no matter what your situation is.
