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 issues could be caused by different causes—but the ideal 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. Pairing 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 utilizes dampers in your home’s ductwork that direct airflow to the appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You control 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 absurd and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled with one switch. Well, that’s basically 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 generally 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 could possibly have problems with hot and cold spaces. These could be a result of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. We all know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it can be ideal 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 occupants more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You can also retrofit your existing system. The professionals at ACE Solutions can help you no matter what your situation is.
