What are the advantages of a zoning system?

April 13, 2018

It’s not unusual for homeowners to like different parts of their homes to be cooler or warmer throughout the day. Perhaps you have young children and you want to get more heat to the rooms when it’s cold outside, or maybe you have a seldom used room that you want to keep cooler or warmer.

It might be time to do research on zoning systems. Zoning systems are a great way to improve your home comfort and maybe lower your energy bills.

A zoning system divides your house into multiple zones, which means you can modify the temperature for those different zones for increased comfort. An HVAC zoning system utilizes motorized dampers in the ductwork to control and direct air to those zones to achieve better home comfort.

Who should consider a zoning system? It’s a wonderful solution if you have several family members with different temperature preferences. Homes that have multiple stories or more expansive floorplans will also benefit from zoning systems, because it may be more difficult to manage the airflow and temps in larger homes.

You can also review the available technology that lets you adjust these zones from your phone, tablet or computer—in addition to your thermostat. If you are away on a holiday or the temperatures spiked, you can adjust it even if you aren’t at home!
