What are the advantages of a zoning system?

April 13, 2018

It’s not odd for homeowners to like different areas of their homes to be cooler or warmer throughout the day. Perhaps you have young children and you want to get more heat to the rooms when it’s cold outside, or maybe you have a hardly used room that you want to keep cooler or warmer.

Let us introduce you to 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 utilizes motorized dampers in the ductwork to control and send air to those zones to achieve better home comfort.

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

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