Get Comfort Control in Every Room of Your Home With a Zoning System
February 14, 2017
Is everyone happy with the same temperature setting in your home? Do you ever heat and cool empty rooms? Probably not, right? Drafty rooms contribute to comfort issues, too. If any of these comfort problems sound familiar, read on to learn how a zoning system can give you total control of the comfort in every room of your home and, yes, keep everyone happy.
Basics of Zoning Systems
The typical home is heated and cooled by one forced-air HVAC system. You set the temperature you want on the thermostat, and all of the rooms of your home are heated or cooled at the same time. This standard "one-zone" system has been used for decades, and may get the job done. However, it doesn't leave any room for fine-tuning your comfort or energy savings.
When you install a zoning system, you suddenly have total control of temperature in areas or multiple rooms of your home. Here's how it works:
- A network of thermostats and duct dampers are installed for the zones.
- The thermostats in each zone continuously monitor temperature, and activate heating or cooling based on your programs.
Benefits of Total Comfort Control
Once you have programmed your desired temperatures and times for each zone, you don't have to fiddle with turn-back/up periods, such as when you're away at work or during sleeping hours. Not only does this save you time and energy, you enjoy your preferred comfort temperatures automatically.
Additionally, take advantage of these benefits of zoning systems:
- Control compatible HVAC whole-home humidifiers, dehumidifiers and/or ventilators for complete indoor environmental control.
- Changing or checking temperatures, programs and settings is a snap -- or tap -- using a smartphone app or your online tablet or computer.
- Help everyone sleep better with personalized temperatures in each bedroom.
- Help eliminate drafts by directing airflow to zones you desire without disrupting other zones.
