Is your family conflicted in a thermostat war? In other words, are some room temperatures in your home just right for you but not for others and vice versa, leading to constant thermostat setting and resetting?
Do some areas or rooms of your home not cool down or heat up as consistently as others? Inconsistent climate control can be caused by a variety of reasons including faulty system installation, a lack of regular maintenance or possibly an improperly operating thermostat. Ductwork issues can also result in leaks and uneven heating/cooling.
If you answered yes to these questions, it may be time for an HVAC zoning system for your home. A zoning system divides your home into distinct areas or zones, thereby enabling you to customize the temperature settings in each zone. With its own dedicated thermostat, each zone can be customized to fit your needs. For example, a lower or higher temperature can be regulated in the living room than in the dining room.
Here are some of the benefits of installing a zoning system in your home:

  • Shutting off or reducing heating and cooling in zones not in use results in the most efficient use of your home’s system. You could see up to 30% on your heating and cooling bills.
  • Controlling the temperature in different rooms with only one thermostat can be difficult, especially in multi-level homes that feature varying temps from floor to floor. Other temperature variation problems such as shading, vaulted ceilings, etc. can be eliminated by allowing each zone’s thermostat to individually monitor trouble areas and reduce hot and cold spots throughout the home.
  • Where and when to direct your system’s heating and cooling is a major benefit of system zoning. It also means the convenience of setting your system for all zones with one remote control, without having to go into that room.
