What are the advantages of a zoning system? 04/13/2018It’s not uncommon 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 get more heat to the rooms when it’s cold outside, or maybe you have a rarely 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 utilizes 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 wonderful solution if you have several family members with different temperature preferences. Homes that have multiple stories or more expansive 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 review the available technology that lets you adjust 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!
