It can be difficult to design homes for a perfect distribution of heating and cooling. Tall ceilings, huge windows and unfinished walls can disrupt the flow of indoor climate control. This doesn’t include families and their individual preferences. Maybe Dad prefers a cooler bedroom at night, or Grandma likes the den nice and warm for a nap. A zoning system can help account for these preferences as well as the quirks of your home’s design.
Dampers are placed in your home’s ductwork, redirecting airflow to the zones that need it more. When Dad goes to sleep at night, a zoning system redirects more cooling toward the bedroom zone. Each zone can be a single room, group of rooms or even an entire floor. With precise control over the airflow, comfort can be fine-tuned to your exact preferences.
To make sure each zone is at the correct temperature, additional thermostats
or sensors are installed in each zone. Like any thermostat, it should be placed in a central location that will ensure heating and cooling reaches every part of the zone.
While a zoning system can be a great investment, it isn’t always an automatic improvement. Homes with multiple floors, big windows or unfinished basements
and attics will benefit the most from installing a zoning system. A trusted service company can help you determine if one is right for you.
