Should I Zone My Home’s HVAC?

Do you have areas in your home that are hot in the summer or cold in the winter? Consider having your system zoned with a damper system.

Top 3 Reasons Why.

Comfort: The main benefit of HVAC zoning is improved comfort. Many homes have hot or cold spots that don’t seem to change, even when the HVAC system is running.

With a zoned system, you can control each area of the house. If your bedrooms feel cold when the rest of the house feels comfortable, simply adjust the thermostat in that area to improve your comfort level.

Energy Conservation: HVAC zoning can also help you save energy, which translates to lower monthly bills. A traditional heating and cooling delivers air throughout the entire home through vents. When you adjust the temperature on the thermostat, you’ll feel air coming through every room. This can waste energy, especially if your system is heating or cooling rooms of the home that no one is using. With a zoned system, you can adjust the thermostat in one area instead of changing the temperature in the entire house.

Control: When you add zoning to your home’s HVAC system, you also gain more control over the temperature in every room. It’s hard to maintain a perfectly comfortable atmosphere, especially when you live in a large home with multiple levels. The upper level tends to stay warmer while the main level feels comfortable, and the basement is colder so turning on the AC could drop the temperature too low in certain areas.  With HVAC zoning, you have control over the various zones, making it easier to keep it cool throughout the warm seasons.
