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 factors—but the ideal 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. Pairing 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 utilizes dampers in your ductwork that direct 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 particular 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 nonfunctional and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s in essence the same scenario as controlling the comfort of every room 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 typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have related heating and cooling needs.
Even if your indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold areas. These could be due to 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 less 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 an ideal time to think about a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your current system. The professionals at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can help you no matter what your situation is.
