Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a couple rooms in your home are more comfortable than other places or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different factors—but your 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 appropriate zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You regulate your comfort in the zone with the thermostat installed for that specific zone. Each of the individual thermostats is connected to the control panel that runs your HVAC system.

Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?

Imagine how absurd and inefficient it would be if every light in your home were controlled using one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same synopsis as controlling the comfort of each and 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 similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your indoor space is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold spots. 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 reduced amounts of heat upstairs.

Having your home zoned will keep you and your household more comfortable and save on expenses. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to look at a zoned heating and cooling system. You can even retrofit your existing system. The professionals at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning can help you no matter what your situation is.
