There are major benefits to adding a zoning system to your home. In addition to adding value, these must-have HVAC systems improve your comfort, enhance energy efficiency, and extend your system’s lifespan with a single installation. Keep reading to find out why we recommend heating and cooling zoning to our customers, especially those with hot and cold spots, a new addition, or a finished basement.
What Is Zoning?
Zoning divides your home into separate areas and gives you individual control over heating and cooling in each. For example, you could keep your main living level at a comfortable 72°F and upstairs rooms at a cooler 66°F to save on energy bills while you’re asleep or away from home. Zoning is also great for areas where it’s difficult to maintain a consistent temperature, like additions, finished basements, attics, sunrooms, and lofts. If you want more comfort control in your existing home or new construction build, give zoning serious consideration.
Experience Ideal Comfort
Feeling comfortable isn’t always about how you program your thermostat. It’s about eliminating thermostat battles and “too hot” or “too cold” complaints to ensure your family actually feels comfortable. With zoning, you can set different temperatures in each area to alleviate discomfort. Have a bedroom that’s always too hot? Now you can cool it down without cooling the entire house. Basement too chilly? Make that zone warmer. Zoning is the ideal solution to guarantee everyone feels great in their own space.
Improve Your Home Energy Efficiency
When you use one thermostat to control your entire home, it probably won’t be one temperature—you’ll likely experience hot and cold pockets. Why? Because your comfort systems run to hit a set temperature in the area directly surrounding your thermostat. But what about your office, den, or the attic? Often times, these areas might feel untouched by heat and air conditioning if they’re far enough away from your thermostat. That leaves you bumping the temperature up or down, which only makes the problem worse.
With zoning, your system heats and cools each zone directly and efficiently. Plus, each area is monitored for proper temperature and can be programmed to automatically maintain that level of comfort even when you’re not there.
Extend Your System’s Lifespan
A final benefit is that zoning helps your heating and cooling systems last longer because it maximizes efficiency. Instead of running around-the-clock to maintain a single temperature, your systems only run when needed and they direct air to the specified areas to achieve your set temperatures more quickly. It’s a great way to improve your comfort and lower energy bills.
