What are the advantages of a zoning system? 04/13/2018It’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. Say hello to zoning systems. Zoning systems are a great way to increase your home comfort and maybe lower your energy bills. A zoning system splits your house into multiple zones, which means you can customize the temperature for those different zones for increased comfort. An HVAC zoning system uses motorized dampers in the ductwork to control and direct 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 control 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 vacation or the temperatures changed during the day, you can adjust it even if you aren’t at home! Now is the time to bring balance and control to your heating and cooling system.
