What are the advantages of a zoning system?

April 13, 2018

It’s not unusual for homeowners to like different parts of their homes to be cooler or warmer throughout the day. Perhaps you have young children and you want to make sure their rooms are warm in the winter, or maybe you have a hardly used room that you want to keep cooler or warmer.

It might be time to do research on zoning systems. Zoning systems are a great way to increase your home comfort and potentially lower your energy bills.

A zoning system divides your house into multiple zones, which means you can customize the temperature for those different zones for increased comfort. An HVAC zoning system works with motorized dampers in the ductwork to control and send air to those zones to achieve better home comfort.

Who should consider a zoning system? It’s a great solution if you have several people with different temperature preferences. Homes that have multiple stories or larger floorplans will also benefit from zoning systems, because it may be more difficult to oversee the airflow and temps in larger homes.

You can also take a look at the available technology that lets you control these zones from your phone, tablet or computer—in addition to your thermostat. If you are away on a trip or the temperatures took a turn after you left, you can adjust it even if you aren’t at home!
